  • 4 cubes beef bouillon
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • salt and pepper to taste

  • For this yummy soup, I used Cera, my¬†6 Quart Crock Pot with Ceramic Coated Pot. There is quite a bit of food in this recipe, so I wouldn't go smaller than a 5 or 6-quart crock pot.
  • I made a few changes to this recipe (as always!), so feel free to change it up for your family's wants and needs. If celery is a favorite at your house, you can add more. If you aren't fans of potatoes, add in what your family does like and use fewer potatoes. You get the idea.
  • While this isn't a dump and go recipe that has no prep, but it is a simplistic recipe, so don't be afraid of it! It is super easy and delicious!
  • As with any of our recipes, calorie counts and nutritional information varies greatly depending on which products you choose to use when cooking this dish.
  • All slow cookers cook differently, so cooking times are always a basic guideline and should¬†always be tested first in your own slow cooker and time adjusted as needed.
