This is from Trader Vic's restaurants. I first had this back in the 70's. Don't leave out the A-1 (it makes a difference) and don't sweeten the whipped cream :)

What a lovely and easy to put together soup. I'm surprised this recipe has not been reviewed mored often. I followed instructions as listed using a copycat A1 steak sauce (recipe #12650) with very tasty results. Thanks for sharing your lovely recipe Mikekey.
