Fun Alphabet Soup

Makes 5-6 servings

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 6 1/2 - 8 1/2 hours

1/2 lb beef stewing meat, or round steak, cubed
14 1/2 oz can stewed tomatoes
8 oz can tomato sauce
1 cup water
1 envelope dry onion soup mix
10 oz pkg frozen vegetables, partially thawed
1/2 cup uncooked alphabet noodles

Place the cubed meat in your slow cooker.

Use a safety can opener to open the stewed tomatoes and tomato sauce. Carefully pour them into your slow cooker. Stir well.

Add the water and soup mix to the tomato mixture in the slow cooker.

Cover your slow cooker. Cook the soup on low for 6-8 hours, until the meat is tender but not dry. Ask an adult to help you check if the meat is done cooking after it has cooked for 6 hours.

Then turn your slow cooker heat to high.

Use a potholder to remove the lid. Stir in the vegetables and alphabet noodles.

Add more water if the soup looks too thick and dry.

Use the potholder to put a cover on the slow cooker. Cook the soup on high for 30 minutes, or until the vegetables are cooked.

Serving suggestion: Serve with crackers if you wish.
