S Is For Soup Nazi

Now there is something I haven't done in years.... sledding down the hill in the winter.
I can remember as a kid, it was fun to get wet and cold out on the hill. Now, I'm not so sure my old bones can handle the run, let alone the cold.
So I decided to tell you one of my many talents. It has even dubbed me "The Soup Nazi".

I can make a soup out of just about anything. Whether it's leftovers in the fridge, a recipe or off the cuff with fresh ingredients, I can make a mean soup or stew.
During the colder months it is what we eat more and more. Hearty meals was the soul in the Fall and Winter.

So recently I made a beef vegetable soup in my slow cooker,  and I figured this would be a great chance to give ya'll the recipe.
1 lb beef, stewed or cut steak ( I prefer buying a steak and cutting myself.)
1 1/2 cups baby carrots
1 1/2 cups green beans, cut
2 large potatoes, peeled and cut
1/2 an onion, chopped
1 can of niblets corn
1 small can of tomato sauce
3 cups water
1 tbsp salt
1 tbsp pepper
2 packages of beef broth or 2 OXO cubes

Add all ingredients to your crock-pot. Cook on HIGH for around 9 hours. Stir occasionally to avoid sticking to the bottom. Serve warm with a fresh baguette.

So there is one of the many soups or stews I will make throughout this cold season. Do you have a favorite slow-cooker soup you make often??

Alphabe Thursday


  1. I looove my slow cooker. Nothing like coming home after a long day and the sweet smelling dish is all ready to be served. Thanks for the recipe - pinning it now :-)

  2. Mmm! Can almost smell the goodness! Yummy!

    PS The giveaway below looks so inviting. I'm almost tempted to do one myself (of my own thrillers!!)

  3. I love soup and eat plenty of it in the Winter. I haven't made any in the slow cooker though. Now I'll have to try it!

  4. I love making soup all year round but have never tried using my slow cooker! I really don't know why, it would be much easier! In the fall I love making roasted vegetable soup or butternut squash soup. I don't use a recipe, just freestyle Lol!

  5. Oh Soups are wonderful especially with the cool weather coming ~ wonderful post for S ~ Happy Weekend ~ carol ^_^

  6. wish I have someone like around to make me soup during the cold seasons. 9 hours to make soup? I wish I have the skill and the patience.

    hope you have a great day.

  7. You had me at fresh baguette ... my favorite part of any soup! :)

  8. My specialty is soups - my husband's grandmother agreed with the rest of the family that my soups were exceptional "now, she added," if only we can get her to make a decent cup of tea". (too weak evidently, and my mother says the 'tide is always out' on them - maybe I should become the tea Nazi and shout at them - " no tea for you!."

    1. Just the sort of soup to welcome cooler and weather and fall ! :)

  9. Mmmmm! That looks sooooo gooood! I do have tons of soup recipes but slow-cooked Chinese-style soup is kinda different - it's more like broth.

  10. Excellent post, and gee it does look yummy! I like putting new soups together too! What fun it is!

  11. Soups are quite scrumptious on a cold afternoon...

    I don't have a favorite but I have a sneaking suspicion that this recipe will be up there!

    Spectacular post for the letter "S"!

    Thanks for linking.
