  • 1 c. Beef broth and leftover green beans from your roast
  • Water
  • 4 cans of beans any kind you like pinto and black beans work well
  • Any type of extra veggie you want – we like carrots! optional
  • 1 cup of noodles optional


  1. Add your water, beans, veggies and noodles (if you choose to use them) into your broth.
  2. Heat on medium for 4 hours. Or you can freeze and cook it when you thaw it.
  3. Once your soup is cooked, you can bag it in freezer bags to use for a meal at a later date.

Recipe Notes

You can use dried beans. Most people will find dried beans better if they are soaked overnight for around 6 hours in water before adding into the slow cooker.
