CROCKPOT VEGETABLE BEEF SOUP FAQ
WHAT IS THE BEST CUT OF MEAT FOR VEGETABLE BEEF SOUP?

CAN I USE RAW POTATOES?
Absolutely! I use diced potatoes to save time. If you want to peel and chop potatoes to go in this hearty beef soup, you can easily do that! You’ll want to peel and cube 1-2 medium potatoes. You can use fresh vegetables as a substitute for any vegetables mentioned in this recipe.
HOW DO YOU MAKE EASY VEGETABLE BEEF SOUP?
My trick for easy soup is making this recipe for Crockpot vegetable beef soup with frozen vegetables and canned potatoes. It cuts down on the prep time you need to get the soup in the slow cooker!
HOW DO YOU MAKE VEGETABLE SOUP IN A SLOW COOKER?
You can make a vegetable soup in the Crockpot by leaving out the beef. The recipe is very flexible and you can add additional veggies to create a mix with your favorites. Adding pasta or beans can be a great way to increase the heartiness of the soup without the meat.
WHAT ARE THE BEST SPICES TO USE IN VEGETABLE BEEF SOUP?
The great thing about this recipe is that you can spice it up with your family’s favorite flavors. You can add minced garlic, Italian seasoning, or even add some heat to things with some crushed red pepper. I recently saw a recipe that added some vinegar at the end to add some tang to the soup!
HOW DO YOU MAKE VEGETABLE BEEF SOUP WITH V8 JUICE?
If you want to make this beef soup with V8 Juice, substitute it in for half of the water. So you would use 1 cup of water and 1 cup of V8 Juice. You can tweak this to get the flavors you want. I love that using V8 in this recipe adds an extra punch of nutrition too. This soup has a light broth rather than a think one so V8 works well in terms of consistency.
HOW DO YOU MAKE VEGETABLE BEEF AND CABBAGE SOUP?
Crockpot vegetable beef soup with cabbage is easy to make using our recipe. You can add 1-2 cups of coarsely chopped cabbage when you put all of the vegetables in the slow cooker.
CAN I USE THIS RECIPE TO MAKE SLOW COOKER VEGETABLE GROUND BEEF SOUP?
Absolutely! Just substitute the ground chuck with a pound of ground beef. If using ground beef, I prefer to brown it before adding it to the Crockpot. I brown the meat, drain it, and then add it to the mixture before cooking.
HOW DO YOU SPICE UP VEGETABLE BEEF SOUP?
You spice up vegetable beef soup by adding cayenne! It’s as easy as that! The flavor works well. I do suggest going very slowly with it and tasting it as you go so you don’t spice it up too much! You can also try crushed red pepper if you’re a fan.
WHAT VEGETABLES GO IN VEGETABLE BEEF SOUP?
The vegetables that go in the vegetable beef soup are very flexible and can be adapted to meet the flavor preferences of your family. Typically, the veg beef soup includes celery, onion, carrots, and potatoes. You can also add corn or frozen peas.
If you want the convenience factor, I recommend the frozen vegetables. You can use canned vegetables but I find that the frozen have a better texture after being in the slow cooker. The canned vegetables start out softer and get pretty mushy after cooking.
