We serve ours with some cooked white rice. The combo makes for a delicious dinner that’s simple and scrumptious.

Slow Cooker Beef and Vegetable Soup

First, brown a pound of ground sirloin over medium-high heat. You can do this step up to 3 days ahead of time so that you’re not worrying about dirtying a skillet in the morning! Just brown it up, cool it off, and keep it stored in an airtight container in the fridge.

Next, chop yer veggies! You can also do this step ahead of time (about 2 days before).

Now, throw all of your chopped veggies into the bottom of your slow cooker. I use a mixture of chopped onion, red bell pepper, celery, and green beans.

Next, add in 1 lb. of shredded cabbage.

Then, add in a can of petite diced tomatoes (with the juice) and 1 tbs. of tomato paste. We use this tube tomato paste to make it easy to get the amount we need without wasting it like you sometimes do with canned tomato paste. Just store it in the fridge!

Next, sprinkle on some seasonings: 1 tsp. Italian seasoning, 1/2 tsp. garlic powder, 2 tsp. Kosher salt, and 1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper.

Now, add in the cooked ground sirloin.

Finally, pour in 1 qt (4 cups) of beef stock.

Stir everything together, cover, and cook on high for 4 1/2 hours or low for 9 hours.

Everything in the soup will cook down into a delicious, comforting soup full of tons of good veggies.

Our kids gobble this stuff up like you wouldn’t believe, too! It makes dinnertime so much easier when you’re not bartering with the natives to take bites.
