Frequently Asked Questions

Can I make this soup on the stove?
Yes! You can certainly cook it in a large pot on the stove. Just adjust the cooking times as needed.

Can I lower the cooking time?
Yes. Instead of slow cooking on low for 6 hours you can slow cook for 2-3 hours on high. Keep on warm until ready to serve.

How do I store leftovers?
Leftovers can be stored in the fridge in an airtight container for 2-3 days. Reheat in the microwave.

Can I use ground turkey?
Yes. If you want to cut down on calories, you can certainly use ground turkey in place of the ground sirloin beef.

Place the lid on the slow cooker and leave on high setting for 6 hours, stirring occasionally. 

About 45 minutes before you’re ready to serve the soup, add the frozen peas, and stir well.  Adding the peas at the very end of cooking will help them to maintain their green color.  If you are not ready to serve the Soup at the 6-hour mark, turn the Crock Pot on low, and add more water if needed.
