Beef-Broccoli Soup

Broccoli Beef Soup is a warm and filling winter classic, that is rich in protein from the beef chunks and homemade stock.  Make use of Broccoli and onions during the winter, as they are seasonal, inexpensive, and give a burst of green in an otherwise white winter wonderland.

This soup is mostly made in the slow cooker, with the meat added at the end to preserve texture and flavor.  Pack in a thermos for the next day’s lunch.
