I LOVE SOUP!
I could eat soup for lunch and dinner, every single day, regardless of the temperature outside.
This Slow Cooker Low Carb Beef Vegetable Soup is no exception. The chunks of beef are flavourful and tender, the veggie combo is perfect and the broth is just delicious!
Paired with some Low Carb Crackers, a side of 90 Second Toast or Low Carb Biscuits, and lunch or dinner really doesn’t get much better!
Nick and I were basically battling with rock-paper-scissors over who got the last bowl for lunch! I’ll have to make a double batch next time…
I hope you love this Low Carb Vegetable Beef Soup as much as we do!
What ingredients you’ll need to make this Low Carb Vegetable Beef Soup
You’ll want to start with some beef. I like to grab stew beef but you can also choose a nice marbled steak.
After that you’ll want some herbs. In this low carb vegetable beef soup I use salt, black pepper, basil, thyme and oregano.
Now the veggies. There is onion, garlic, celery, red pepper, green beans and canned diced tomatoes.
Lastly you’ll also need some beef broth or stock. I try to have beef bone stock on hand at all times but it doesn’t always work out that way. It’s incredibly good for you, especially living a low carb lifestyle! Never made it before? Here’s my post on How to Make Bone Stock.
No time? No worries! Grab some organic beef broth from the store.
How to make Low Carb Vegetable Beef Soup
I like to start by prepping all my ingredients.
You’ll want to chop up the onion, celery and red pepper and set them aside in one pile together. The green beans can be trimmed, chopped into 1″ pieces and tossed right into the slow cooker.
Peel and mince/press the garlic and add to a medium bowl with the dried basil, dried thyme, dried oregano, sea salt and ground black pepper. Mix well and set aside.
Cut the beef into small chunks, about 1 cm x 1 cm for maximum coverage in the soup, then mix well into the herb blend.
Heat a tbsp of olive or avocado oil in a skillet and once it is super hot, sear the beef for 1 or 2 minutes, just until the outside has some browned colour. Dump the beef into the slow cooker.
Add another tbsp of olive or avocado oil to the skillet and once hot again, add the celery, red pepper and onion. Cook for a couple of minutes until the onion becomes translucent, then scrape into the slow cooker.
Mix in the can of diced tomatoes then pour in the beef bone stock or broth. Stir then cook of low for 5-6 hours or high 3-4.
Adjust with extra salt or pepper to taste. Enjoy!
What are the best cuts of steak for slow cooking?
Can’t find stew meat?
That’s totally okay, there are certain cuts that are great for slow cooking.
Look for either a chunk steak, round steak, or blade steak. These are all great cuts for slow cooking!
Don’t have a slow cooker? Make this soup on the stove!
After searing the beef, remove from the heat and fry the other veggies until the onion is translucent.
Add everything together in a soup pot and bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer and cook for an hour or so.
