Soups are easy to prepare on the stove top or in a slow cooker. On the stove, simply cook until the vegetables and meat are cooked through. This will depend in how big the pieces of food are, and whether or not the meat was precooked. In the slow cooker, three or four hours on high works fine. Twice as long when slow cooking on a low temperature.
