Easy Slow Cooker Ground Beef and Vegetable Soup
by , October 13, 2017
Condensed beef broth and onion soup make this slow cooker ground beef soup a snap to fix, and they add tremendous flavor. Ground beef makes it a hearty dish for lunch or supper. Frozen mixed vegetables are added near the end of the cooking time. Drained canned beans would be a nice addition to the soup as well.
