Recipe: Quick And Easy Vegetable Beef Soup

| February 20, 2018 @ 5:00 am

Nothing beats my mom’s slow-cooked vegetable soup. It’s a labor of love that starts with stew meat in the slow cooker overnight and is finished the next day with tons of fresh veggies. As a kid, I could often convince her to add macaroni, too. It’s amazing and so chock full of flavor. It’s my favorite cold-weather food. Served with some delicious cornbread (be it my Hot Water Cornbread or this delicious 5-Ingredient Cornbread from FaveSouthernRecipes), it might be one of my all-time favorites. Nothing says “home” quite like it.
