Put all vegetables and beef bouillon except the potatoes in a large pot, covering them with about an inch or so of water and bring to a fast rolling boil, then reduce to a simmer for about 20 minutes or until veggetables are all done.
Keep the potatoes covered in water until they are added to keep them from turning black. Add the potatoes and continue simmering until potatoes are fork tender.
Add the crab meat and Old Bay and perhaps a bit more ground black pepper to taste. Some like it spicier than others. Add water if needed.
