Tired of canned soup? You're going to love this slow cooker chunky beef soup recipe

Print this recipe
There is no better use of a slow cooker than to make a pot of hearty soup on a chilly day. This easy soup is loaded with chunks of tender beef, tomatoes and cabbage. Serve it with a loaf of crusty bread, or — even better — garlic bread, and it’s a full meal that practically cooks itself.
Like most soups, this one gets even better after sitting in the refrigerator overnight, which makes this a great choice for weekly meal prep. Make this soup on Sunday, and you can enjoy it throughout the work week. It freezes well, too, so you might want to stash a few servings for soup emergencies.
