Delicious soup, perfect for winter. I made last night exactly as written except used only 1 cup carrots as they are not a favourite als used canned tomatoes. It was flavoursome and really hearty. Thanks
I made this a couple weeks ago when our weather turned cold and rainy to warm us up. It was delicious, great comfort food! I used ground round, beef broth in place of the water, left the skin on the potatoes, and used canned petite diced tomatoes. Left it to simmer for one hour and loved it. I think some beans or maybe even a small pasta would taste good in this soup too. Made and reviewed for the Australian/NewZealand Forums Recipe Swap #38.
This soup is a delicious basic where the broth is the star. I enjoyed the flavor added by the bay leaves & basil. I used only 1 pound of venison and added a green pepper & green beans. I also used 4 cups of beef stock in place of half of the water. Next time I will use peite diced tomatoes. Thanks Gerry for sharing your recipe! I will be making it again. =)
Perfect rainy day meal. I added some minced garlic and the flavor was wonderful.
