And now it is the time in the soup cooking where we turn the ingredients from a pile of vegetables and meat into an actual soup!
What I've done here, see, is placed some amount of water into a bowl. Probably 3 cups or something, that sounds about right. Then, I added some beef based flavours, and various herbs and spices, and something to make it look kinda frothy and black and evil, and then I mixed it all up!
At this point, you pour this mixture over the contents of the CrockPot slow cooking apparatus, engage the heating mechanism to 1/4 impulse speed, and go away for 12 hours.
Hooray for INCREDIBLY SLOW COOKING FOOD!
