Tortellini Soup Crockpot Style

My Tortellini soup is not a thin bowl of broth with some floating pasta. When I make any soup I tend towards a hearty stew!

2 large pieces of shin beef (bone in)
2 frozen bags of beef tortellini
4 large carrots sliced
2 pieces of celery sliced
3 medium potatoes quartered
1 small can of mushroom slices
2 tsp. salt (more or less to taste)
2tsp Italian mixed seasonings
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
8 cups water
1 can beef broth
1 can chicken broth

Place shin beef in 8 c. water with spices in crock-pot - turn on high heat

  • Cook for 2-3 hours
  • Add all of the vegetables and continue cooking on medium heat 1 hour
  • Most of the meat will have cooked off of the bone, remove the shin bones and cut off any remaining meat.
  • Any large pieces of meat should be cut into small cubes
  • Turn heat up to high and add the tortellini,
  • cook till tender, approx 20 min.

    Note: This soup is great served with fresh bread and salad
