    Shannon 24's Note:

    This is a hearty soup. Serve with crusty bread and a tossed salad for the perfect meal! Variation: Instead of finishing the soup with sour cream and dill, ladle into ovenproof bowls. Place a slice or two of a baguette in each bowl. Sprinkle liberally with shredded swiss cheese and broil for 2 to 3 minutes.

      Very nice soup. I started it in the early afternoon and just used a pot on the stove top. I didn't have dried mushrooms and just added fresh ones about 30 mins before dinner. I adore the peppercorns. They are a lovely little nip when you bite one. This is well seasoned. I skipped the tomato paste only because I use it seldom and I hate opening a can for a small amount and throwing the rest out. DH had a BIG bowl and loved it also. I guess that I should also say that in order to save on fat I trimmed the beef very well and just put it in the pot raw and let it simmer with everything else. Made for Photo Tag.
