This is a great cold weather soup, it is comforting and tasty and best of all you can make it in an afternoon without a lot of fuss. It can simmer on low on the stove top until you are ready to serve. It is a wonderful meal served with fresh crusty bread.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Melt butter and oil in a large pan over medium heat until foam disappears, stir in the steak, onion and garlic and cook and stir until meat and onions are browned about 10 - 15 minutes.
  2. Next, mix together flour, thyme, salt and pepper, sprinkle the flour over the browned meat and stir to coat.
  3. In a large pot add the vegetable broth, oxo cubes, Worcestershire sauce, diced tomatoes, diced red pepper and meat mixture; bring to a boil, reduce the heat to medium low, cover and simmer until meat is tender, about 45 minutes to an hour.
  4. Next add the potatoes, carrots, celery, mushrooms and poblano chile and simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are tender and the soup has thickened.
  5. If you find the soup too thick add more vegetable broth, a little at a time.
  6. Just before serving stir the fresh chopped basil into the soup.

Made for CrazE Contest 2011. LOVED IT!!!! I made the whole batch even though it was just me as it is hunting season. Leftovvers the next day were even better than the first. Maybe because I knew how good this was. I did add in the poblano even though I do not like heat, however instead of seeding and dicing, I seeded and put 2 halves in so I could remove them before eating. What great flavors! I did use homemade veggie and beef broth from my freezer. All else was the same. Wonderful soup and I sure will use this again through our cold snowy winters! Great job Chef. Good Luck!

Great flavoursome soup, nice and healthy too ! I used 2 trimmed pork steaks instead of sirloin and diced all my vegies up pretty small. I did leave out the tomatoes as I had none in the house but the soup worked out well and we all enjoyed it greatly. The recipe makes a big batch so we also have lunch for tomorrow now which is a great help.

I found this a flavorful fall meal. The consistency was more stew like which I loved. The flavor was well rounded & other than using a fresh red pepper I didn't change a thing. Great job!
