Steak and Potato Soup

"This is a peppery soup with lots of mushrooms and steak in it. My family requests this meal very often! Cheap and easy to make! Exact quantities vary depending on how much you want to make. I usually make a huge pot at a time."

Ready In:


  • 3 (10 3/4 ounce) cans campbell's cream of potato soup
  • 3 (10 3/4 ounce) cans Campbell's Cream of Mushroom Soup
  • 3 (4 ounce) packages mushrooms
  • 3 top sirloin steaks
  • 4 russet potatoes, cooked and cut into bite size pieces
  • steak seasoning
  • 1 pint half-and-half
  • 4 garlic cloves, chopped
  • butter, to saute the mushroom
  • salt and pepper, lots of pepper


  • Season the steaks and brown them each side.
  • When done, let them cool.
  • In the meantime, melt the butter.
  • Add mushrooms and garlic.
  • Let them brown up before salting to taste.
  • In a large pot, pour in the soups, potatoes, and mushrooms.
  • Cut up the steak into bite sized pieces and add to the pot.
  • Add half-and-half and let simmer a bit.
  • Add salt to taste.
  • Now, the most important ingredient--add pepper--quite a bit, like a tablespoons to start (I would add in increments and taste). You want it to be very peppery.
  • I usually serve this with garlic bread on the side.

    This was great! We don't eat mushrooms, so I ended up using 2 cream of pot. & 2 cream of chicken. I also used milk. It was yummo! Thank You.

    WOW! I have been looking for a potato soup recipe for a long time and this is PERFECT! I too used milk and I didnt add mushrooms because the young ones dont like them. I started making it at 3 so it could simmer a while and everyone could eat when they were hungry... I also put out shredded cheese, crumpled bacon, and onions so people could top with their favorites. Everyone loved it, especially me because I am a meat and potatoes woman from birth lol! Thank you so so much for this wonderfully easy recipe!

    This was super tasty. I only used two cans of each soup as I can't count when I am at the grocery store... Rave reviews...hubby thought it was a real "Mans Meal" Wonderful mix of flavors. Fresh mushrooms were divine, meat was tender. I did half milk and half - half and half. Great recipe!

    I got raves with this soup. No kidding, like on a commercial. My DH never raves about any food. I really wish that I could give this 10 stars. It's very simple to make and hearty enough to make the full meal with a salad. I used Montreal Steak Spice and 2% milk because I just don't keep 1/2 and1/2. It was rich and thick with no added thickening. I did let it cook longer just because dh wants meat tender with a capital T and I made this for him. It likely simmered on "min" heat for 1 1/2 hours. Thanks so much for sharing this one jenn, truly.
