I had my own stock from a previous roasted beef and just adjusted it from what I had. This is a very nice tasting soup. My boy would love it if he liked veggies. Everyone else really enjoyed it though. Thanks.

Thanks for sharing this recipe. I used 500ml beef stock and 350ml water. I ommitted the canned tomatoes (I didn't have any) and followed the recipe off "pat" for the flavourings, although I did add 1tsp crushed garlic!! (we love garlic!) Indeed a fine comfort soup.

This was very easy to make and had good flavor. I turned it into more of a stew by increasing the amount of potatoes to 5 cups and omitting the second 6 cups of water. Also, I used four cans of beef broth instead of the cubes. Made this way, it was an excellent winter dinner or lunch. It freezes very well.
