I knew as soon as I saw the recipe while skimming my Weight Watchers Momentum Slow Cook It: 165 All-New Slow-Cooker Recipes Cookbook, it would be good and ended up making just a a few changes based on what I had available.

Whisk together the broth, water, tomato paste, thyme and salt in slow cooker until smooth and well combined.
- Stir in the cubes of beef, carrots, celery, onion, potato and turnips.
Cover and cook until the beef and vegetables are fork tender, 4-6 hours on HIGH, or 8-12 hours on LOW.

The cookbook says that this soup freezes beautifully, but I'm not usually a fan of potatoes that have been frozen. Give it a try and let me know what you think.
Vary the vegetables to suit your tastes. This would also work well with a package of frozen mixed vegetables and be even easier.
