Two by Four Soup

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Sudie

From Mom's friend Sylvia. It actually calls for two pounds of beef (thus, two by four), but Sylvia only uses one, and I found it sufficient. I put this in the crockpot on warm on a busy afternoon, and had dinner waiting for me. I served it with a salad and tortillas. This is greater than the sum of its parts; I wasn't expecting it to be as good as it was. DH told me "this is the best thing to ever come out of that crockpot!"

My step son wanted this soup, but I never heard of it. When I found yours I thought I would give it a try hoping he would like it and boy did he. He even ate it the second day. I was shocked thanks for the great recipe.
