Recipe Tips

  • To ensure that this recipe is gluten-free, double-check that you're using gluten-free cornstarch.
  • Browning the beef isn’t hugely important, but it helps reduce the amount of fatty liquid in your soup.
  • The cheese can easily be replaced with something else. For example, a lot of people like to use Velveeta cheese rather than cheddar.
  • I recommend slightly warming the cheese and cream before adding it to the slow cooker. Doing this will help the slow cooker keep its heat so you will have your soup sooner rather than later.
  • Ground beef is also known as beef mince or hamburger. The naming can vary heavily from country to country.
