This is my first ever homemade beef soup. And it was the easiest meal I've ever made and quite tasty, too! Recipe from my Fix It and Forget It daily calendar.
Frances' Hearty Vegetable Soup
1 lb round steak, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
14 1/2 oz can diced tomatoes
3 cups water
2 potatoes, peeled and diced
2 onions, sliced
3 celery ribs, sliced
2 carrots, peeled and sliced
3 beef bouillon cubes
1/2 t dried basil
1/2 t dried oregano
1 t salt
1/4 t pepper
1 1/2 cups frozen veggies of your choice (suggested: peas, green beans, and corn)
1. Combine first 3 ingredients in slow cooker. Cover and cook on high about 6 hours (I only did 4 hours on low - so obviously timing is variable).
2. Add remaining ingredients. Cover and cook on high for 2 more hours or until meat and veggies are tender (I cranked the heat up to high from low and cooked about 3-4 hours, I think).

This is pretty much exactly how I make vegetable beef soup. It's probably my favorite thing to make in the slow cooker -it's soooo good.
