Slow cooked Beef & Pepper Soup

I know we are technically still in summer but in Ireland the Autumn tends to creep in fairly early so I start to crave warm hearty dishes to beat the damp cold weather. I saw this recipe and decided to give it a try. I made a few changes but really loved the finished product.


1lb. Ground Beef

1 cup Onion

2 cups Brocolli, minced

2 Bell Peppers, (any colour) chopped

15 oz. Diced tomatoes

15 oz. Tomato Sauce

500ml Beef Stock

1/2 tsp Dried Basil

1/2 tsp Dried Oregano

1 clove Garlic, crushed

Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper to season

Brown Frusilli or penne pasta (optional)

Cooking fat



~Melt cooking fat in skillet and place over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and cook for 1 minute.

~Add beef to the skillet and cook until meat is brown

~Place the beef, onion and garlic in a slow cooker

~Add all the remaining ingredients, season to taste and stir well

~Cover and slow cook on low for 6 to 8 hours

~I added some pasta to mine which I added once the soup was cooked but if you choose to leave out the pasta then it is ready to serve.

So I hope you enjoy this one to warm you up!xx
