How to Make Slow Cooker Vegetable Beef Soup:

  • Beef: Place your beef cubes in the slow cooker. You can brown them first or you can skip this step, but with soup recipes, I generally recommend browning the meat as it makes for a better broth! This is totally optional and won’t make a big difference.
  • Vegetables: Add some vegetables and some broth.
  • Cook: Turn it on, and let it cook away until everything is melt in your mouth tender.

See how easy that was?

What Cut of Beef is Best for Soup?

Because the meat is slow cooked in broth, it doesn’t need to be an expensive cut of beef to be tender in this crockpot vegetable beef soup.

I like to check my grocery store flyers to see what is on sale. If there is a particular roast that is on for a great price, I’ll buy one and cube it up to make this soup. If you’re not a sales shopper, chuck roast is a great option and will make for some incredibly tender beef.

If you’ve got ground beef instead, you will want to check out my Easy Hamburger Soup for an inexpensive, hearty meal.

  1. I made this over the weekend and gave some to a coworker. My coworker texted me at home to say it was awesome. Her husband took a spoonful, he said it was awesome and he wanted the recipe. I printed the recipe the next day. I thought it was great and easy to make. Will have to make again.5 stars

  2. This has become a staple for our family. The only differences I make is I omit the parsley since none of us care for it and I also leave out the tomato sauce.5 stars

  3. 1486 mg of sodium per serving? That is almost a single day’s recommended amount. Is this a misprint? From the recipe above, it looks like the only salt is in the broth and the canned tomatoes, and additional 2 teaspoons of salt……Why so much salt? Again, is it really 1486 mg of salt per serving? Thank you. I may try this tomorrow but will leave out the 2 tsp of salt.

    1. This is correct for the recipe as written, if you leave out the additional salt, it will certainly reduce the sodium levels.

  4. Holly,
    So glad I found your site. Love it!
    Can you suggest a bottle of wine to go with the beef vegetable soup?
    I’m taking the soup and wine to friends on Halloween eve. Would love a recommendation or two.
    Thanks for sharing.

    1. Hi Cathy,
      Thank you so much for your kind words! I apologize for the delay in response, I somehow missed this comment.

      I would suggest a light red with this soup such as a pinot noir. If you prefer something a little bit heartier, a Malbec would be great too!

  5. I have never attempted to make homemade vegetable beef soup and decided to try my hand at this. It was simple to make and so full of flavor! I cheated a little and added two cans of Veg-All instead of spending my Sunday morning chopping veggies. I did add the onion as called for in the recipe. It was just delicious!5 stars

    1. I would suggest freezing this in individual portions. Thaw in the refrigerator overnight and reheat in the microwave or on the stovetop until heated through.
