"This is REALLY fast to put together on a busy morning. No chopping vegetables or measuring spices and seasonings. I always cook the hamburger first and then add to the slow cooker; if I know I'm going to be in a rush in the morning, I sometimes cook the hamburger the night before and then add it in cold to the slow cooker with the other ingredients. You can use whatever frozen veggies you have in the refrigerator. This recipe uses the ones I almost always have in our deep freezer in the basement, and they are all Great Value (Walmart) brand. This goes well with crusty bread and a side salad! I've also poured this over leftover elbow macaroni and rice, to use up leftovers lurking in the refrigerator."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

In a large skillet, brown the lean ground beef over medium heat until fully cooked. Drain any excess fat.

Step 2

Transfer the cooked ground beef to a slow cooker.

Step 3

Add the frozen mixed vegetables, frozen zucchini blend, and frozen seasoning blend to the slow cooker. Stir well to combine with the ground beef.

Step 4

Pour in the crushed tomatoes, water (using the empty crushed tomato can as a measure), and tomato paste. Stir everything together until well combined.

Step 5

Add the V8 juice to the slow cooker and stir again.

Step 6

Season the soup with salt and pepper according to your taste preferences. Start with a teaspoon of salt and half a teaspoon of pepper, then adjust as needed.

Step 7

Cover the slow cooker and cook on low heat for 6-8 hours or on high heat for 3-4 hours. This will allow the flavors to meld together and the vegetables to become tender.

Step 8

Before serving, taste the soup and adjust the seasoning if necessary.


No special items needed.

Great soup and so easy to put together. I did change the frozen veggies up using only 20 ounces of mixed frozen veggies and I added some pasta shells. Very hearty soup that warmed our bellies on a cold fall day. Thx for sharing your recipe with us.
