  • Step 2

    Season beef chunks with garlic salt, salt, and black pepper; add to the beef stock mixture. Add bay leaves to the slow cooker.

  • Step 3

    Cook on Low until the soup thickens and the beef is tender, about 6 hours.

  • Step 4

  • Cook's Note:

    If you have time you can brown the beef, but it’s just as good without the beef browned because the slow cooker makes the beef very tender.
