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. We have never tried this recipe with that substitution Dennis but would love to hear how it turns out. For a closer substitute, you could try replacing it with tomato soup.

  1. Perfect! Doubled the recipe as written plus large pinch of thyme. Did reduce liquid by about a cup as my 6qt slow cooker was dangerously close to the lid. Keeping about 2” from cover avoids potential spillage and I prefer my ingredients larger, more Like a fork and spoon soup. Will freeze remaining . Thank you, that flavor is outrageously tasty5 stars

    1. Glad you enjoyed it Pat and that is a great idea! Definitely want to avoid overflowing the crockpot if you can.

  2. We’ve made this several times this winter…love it…I add a couple tablespoons pure maple syrup to it and it accentuates the flavor…wonderful!5 stars

  3. Omg! I followed the recipe exactly except I added some corn to mine. It was delicious! I will make this regularly! Thank you for sharing!5 stars

  4. Very delicious. My husband loved it. I did a few things different though. First I DID brown the beef and used the drippings and such in the broth. Second i used better than bouillon for the broth. I didn’t have the tomato sauce or paste so i used a can of Campbells tomato soup (not diluted) straight from the can. i did NOT drain my diced tomatoes. Used that juice too. Also i used Yukon gold potatoes. They seem to hold up to slow cooking without getting to squishy. Finally toward the end i did add in some barley. All great adjustments and very tasty. Good comfort food that’s pretty good for you too. We enjoyed with some French bread.5 stars

    1. I’ve only made the recipe as written. If you use cooked beef, you may want to add it about halfway through the cooking. Let us know if you try it with cooked roast beef Trish!

    1. Any kind of potatoes will work in this recipe. Russets tend to get a little bit softer while waxy potatoes will hold their shape a bit better.
