This recipe has a lighter beef flavor than most recipes I've tried. I have never liked MD Crab Soup because of how much it reminds me of a beef and veggie soup...UNTIL I tried it recently at a local restaurant and I loved it. You can taste the Old Bay® and the beef, yet neither are overwhelming. What you taste is a wonderful light blend of crab, beef, & veggies. My boyfriend is from MD, and he said it was the best MD Crab Soup he's EVER had.
