Slow Cooker Recipe-Vegetable Beef or Venison Soup with V8 Juice

Vegetable Beef Soup with V8 Juice Slow Cooker Recipe

Kerri passed along her Vegetable Beef or Venison Soup with V8 Juice a while back and I finally got around to making it….and I’m glad I did!  You can use a slow cooker for this or simply a crock pot.  I thought I would repost this now that I have a picture to go with the recipe!

I tweaked this slow cooker recipe a little so be sure to check out Kerri’s original Beef Soup Recipe using V8 Juice.  The V8 Juice I bought was 64oz which is much larger than the cans so I had to adjust the ingredients.  This Vegetable Beef Recipe was delicious AND Healthy!  How often do you use 6 cans of veggies for your dinner?!
Vegetable Beef or Venison Soup with V8 Juice

  • 1 (64oz) bottle of V-8 juice plus the same container full of water  
  • 2-3 lbs of ground beef or venison, browned and drained
  • 6 cans of mixed vegetables (any kind you want!  I used mostly green beans and corn)
  • 2 envelopes of Onion soup mix (I used “beefy onion”)


  • Pour the V-8 juice plus the water into the slow cooker
  • Add the COOKED ground beef or venison
  • Add 6 cans of vegetables
  • Add 2 envelopes of onion soup mix
  • Stir, Cover and Cook on low for the day or High for a few hours.

Thanks again to Kerri for this recipe! For a more traditional version try this Beef Soup Recipe!

Peanut Butter Fudge Recipe

Peanut Butter Fudge Recipe! Must-Have for Christmas! Santa will love this with some milk!
Peanut Butter Fudge Recipe

It’s not Christmas without my mom’s homemade peanut butter fudge.  She makes her Fudge Recipe both with and without nuts to please everyone!  If you love Peanut Butter, you’ll want to make this!

This Peanut Butter Fudge freezes really well and even tastes amazing while it’s still frozen.  My poor freezer has been opened and shut about 100 times today! I break off  a “little” piece at a time and then go back for more 2 seconds later!

Peanut Butter Fudge Recipe Ingredients

  • 3 Cups White Sugar
  • 1 1/2 Sticks of Margarine
  • 2/3 Cups Pet Milk
  • 1 Cup of Peanut Butter
  • 7oz Marshmallow Creme
  • 1 Tb Cocoa
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 1 Cup Chopped Walnuts (optional)

Peanut Butter Fudge Recipe Directions

  • Melt margarine in a heavy duty pot on the stove.
  • Add the Sugar and milk and stir
  • Continue stirring over medium-high heat until it boils
  • Reduce heat to medium and boil while stirring constantly for 5 minutes
  • Quickly Add Peanut Butter, Marshmallow Creme, Vanilla, Cocoa, and Nuts (optional)
  • Stir until well combined (Again, do this quickly before it sets up)
  • Pour into a greased 13×9 pan (for easy clean-up and removal, you can line your pan with aluminum foil)
  • Let cool and then cut into squares

Homemade Bread Stuffing Recipe

Homemade Stuffing Recipe
Homemade Bread Stuffing Recipe

  • 3/4 cup margarine or butter (To cut calories, I use 1/2 cup)
  • 2 cups chopped celery
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 9 cups dry bread cubes
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • 1 tsp. poultry seasoning
  • 1-2 cups of chicken broth (or 2 bouillon cubes dissolved in 2 cups of boiling water)


  • Melt margarine in a large pot over medium heat.
  • Cook celery and onion in margarine for 2-5 minutes (depending on the size)
  • Remove from heat and add bread cubes, salt, pepper and poultry seasoning
  • Slowly add chicken broth and stir until you get a nice consistency. The dryer your bread crumbs, the more broth you will need.*

This is an EASY and FRUGAL side dish. Freeze leftover bread instead of throwing it away and once you have enough, use it for this recipe!  This is the only way I will use bread that has been frozen.  The other ingredients are also inexpensive so for only a few dollars, you can have delicious, homemade stuffing!

We make this Homemade Stuffing Recipe throughout the year – not just at Thanksgiving!

*If you are using this Homemade Bread Stuffing to stuff a turkey or chicken, do not use as much broth.
