We are remodeling the kitchen and getting very hungry for food again so I got out the slow cooker and made this soup. It's perfect when you do not have a lot of time. Since you can get soup bones that contain little fat, this soup is nearly fat-free. When the soup is cooled there is no visible fat at the surface.

I agree that the bouquet garini spice ball reference was vague. So I googled it and there is a website called Sara's Secrets that gives great ideas for what spices to use.

This was a tasty and filling. I changed it by using the beef cubes for stew instead of dealing with the bones. That one change saved me a lot of time.
