Hearty Slow Cooker Vegetable Beef Soup
(Makes 8-10 servings)
1/2 lb. stew beef, cut into small cubes (1/2" or less)
2 cups frozen corn
2 cups green beans, ends trimmed and cut in 1/2
3 large carrots, diced
1 large potato, peeled and sliced
1 large (24-28 oz.) can crushed tomatoes
1 1/2 c. warm water
1 pkg. beef onion soup mix
Combine beef and vegetables in the crock of your slow cooker (do not drain the crushed tomatoes - you want that liquid). Mix beef onion soup mix in 1 1/2 c. warm water to help dissolve. Pour over beef and vegetables and stir. Cover and cook on low 7-8 hours until vegetables are tender.
Note: You can use canned vegetables in place of fresh/frozen - but look for the low sodium varieties. The dried soup mix adds enough salt. Also, you can add more beef to this if you want. I just wanted to make the vegetables the stars of the show!
