postheadericon Tina J’s Crock Pot Stoup

More than a soup and not quite a stew!

What you need:

  • Crock Pot
  • Sharp knife for cutting and or peeling
  • Cutting board to save those awesome counters of yours
  • Your favorite meat!  Ground pork, Sausages, beef, chicken, turkey
  • 1/2 a cup of water (No measuring cups?  Use a coffee cup!)
  • Garlic clove
  • Potato’s
  • Carrots
  • Brocolli
  • Cauliflower
  • Onion
  • Any other veggies you like!  Canned, frozen or fresh!
  • Package of vegetable soup mix
  • Rice or pot barley
  • Parsley fresh or dried
  • Chili flakes *Optional but great for a kick!
  • Salt & Pepper to taste (Sodium restricted diets omit the extra salt)
  • Optional:  Dumplings (Recipe added in Recipe Index page)
  • Soup bowl
  • Spoon
  • Appetite!

How to do it:

  • Decide what meat you want.  We like ground pork and sausages cut up.  Add the meat to the crock pot and a half cup of water.
  • Sprinkle garlic on it and let cook till meat is fully cooked on High for about an hour.
  • Then add vegetable soup mix and then add veggies of any kind whether canned, frozen or fresh or even a mixture all of the listed.
  • Then add Hot water to an inch or more from the top of the crockpot.
  • Now add a couple of small handfuls of rice and of pot barley.
  • I like to add parsley and chile flakes to taste.  (Add salt and pepper to taste if you like as well.)
  • Mix together in the crock pot and let cook on low for 8 hrs or high 4 to 6 hrs  depending on your time.
  • Optional:  Dumplings can be added to the top an hour before serving if wanted.  (Recipe added here.)  Just don’t fill the crock pot as full or the dumplings won’t fit.
  • Serve in a bowl or on a plate and Enjoy!!… T.<
