    3KillerBs's Note:

    A full-meal soup as delicious as the restaurant classic. And a great way to use your leftover pot roast or oven-roasted beef and not waste the drippings. Its a meal in a bowl but a green salad and some hearty bread are welcome additions if you want them.

    • 1 cup beef dripping, degreased (or as much as you have)
    • 3 cups beef stock (or enough to bring the total of dripping and stock to 4 cups)
    • 4 slices stale bread (A hearty type like a sourdough, hearty wheat, rye, pumperknickel, etc.)
    • 4 slices provolone cheese or 4 slices swiss cheese

      This is excellent. Very simple and made with leftovers but you would never know that and neither would your guests! It's a rich flavored soup that makes you savor every spoonful. I used fat free Swiss for the cheese. This was a wonderful dinner and I'll be making this soup whenever I have leftover roast. Thank you killer for a true keeper.
