Easy Crock Pot Vegetable Beef Soup Recipe + Wine Pairing

 

 March is the beginning of Spring and in many parts of the country it's still cold and rainy. We know families are looking for hearty, warm and easy meal ideas. Ya Ya's Vegetable Beef Soup definitely checks all the boxes. 
 
Beef soup also reminds us of St. Patrick's Day. Besides Shepherd's Pie and Corn Beef, our grandma would make the best vegetable beef soup. We would love to come over our grandma's house in the spring time and eat a bowl of soup. Grandma doesn't cook much lately but we sure wish she would make us some of her soup!! She always used okra in her recipe.

Vegetable beef soup is very versatile and pairs well with several wines. 
We selected 3 wines for different palates.
1. Jack Canyon Malbec - This full bodied, earthy, big fruit wine pairs well with beef. Jack Canyon comes out of the state of Washington and we enjoy the red berry joined with black fruit. You can also add the Malbec in the soup for a richer flavor. Shop Now
 
2. Cucharon Red Blend - A blend of 3 grapes - Malbec, Petite Verdot, and Tannat from Argentina. We absolutely love this wine and the notes of blackberry over anise smells so good! We could literally sniff it all day! The taste of black fruits over herbs pairs well with pot roast and beef stew. Shop Now

3. Hoot White Blend - A Crisp white blend with notes of lemon, lime with herbs and mineral flavors. An explosion of taste, rich in flavors that finish smooth. White wine goes with more than just chicken and fish. Hoot White Blend out of California pairs delightful with pulled pork, barbeque, and beef. 
For St. Patrick's Day add a drop of green food coloring in your white wine to have green wine!! Shop Now
