Slow Cooker Tomato-Beef Soup

Author: Ryan Chapman
Servings : 6

Ingredients

  • 1 lb ground beef 90% lean or leaner
  • 2 Tbsp bottled minced garlic
  • 1 cup frozen diced onions
  • 1 cup frozen sliced carrots or diced
  • 1 can Diced Tomatoes 28 oz
  • 4 cups beef broth no sugar listed in ingredients
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup 100% whole grain elbow noodles
  • parmesan cheese grated, as topping, optional

Instructions

  • Add all ingredients except elbow noodles and parmesan in a slow cooker. It helps to break up the ground beef into small chunks but it can also be done at the end if desired.
  • Cook on high for 4 hours or low for 6 hours.
  • Make sure heat is on high. Add pasta. Stir. Cover and cook 12-15 minutes. Check pasta for doneness. (Pasta is done when it is al dente or to the desired doneness.) Cook longer if necessary, in 5 minute increments.
  • Serve in bowls with parmesan cheese, if desired.

Freezer Meal Instructions

  • To use as a freezer meal, add all ingredients except pasta and cheese in a 1 gallon zip top bag. Label and freeze. When ready to cook, remove bag and place frozen contents in a slow cooker. Cook on low for 8 hours or high for 6 hours. Add water and noodles about 30 minutes before serving and turn to high. Serve when noodles are al dente. Top with cheese if desired.
