Recipe Wednesday- Vegetable Beef Soup

If anyone knows med students, we’re cheap, don’t have a lot of money and have to learn to cook at some point if  we don’t want to live off of roman noodles.  For me, my new best friend is my crock pot.  I can prep whatever needs to be prepped, throw it in the crock pot and let it go for 5 hrs and do whatever else I need to do.  When I’m done, I have more than enough for dinner for a week.  This week’s recipe: Vegetable Beef Soup.

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb ground beef (to be healthy, leaner the better)
  • 4 cups water (you don’t even have to buy it at the store!)
  • 1 lb potatoes (ie 2 ish smaller potatoes) peeled and cut up into pieces
  • 1 onion, cut up
  • mushroom pieces
  • Onion soup mix pack
  • 1 jar (16 oz) salsa (chunky)
  • 2 carrots, chopped up (or if you’re me, baby carrots dumped in)

What to do:

  • cook the beef over the stove until it’s brown
  • while the beef is cooking, get all of the other ingredients into the crock pot in whatever order you want and mix them up
  • add the beef when it’s brown enough
  • cook on high for 3-4 hrs (in med student time) or 8 hrs on low
  • enjoy!

If I had pictures, I’d share them, but I don’t unfortunately.  Any left overs can be thrown into plastic tupperware and put into the fridge for supper in the the rest of the week’s meals.  If I can do it (and this being someone who doesn’t cook a lot), anyone can.   It’s idiot proof!!! Just don’t forget that you have it on
