Tasty Meat & Potato Soup

"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."

directions

  • 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.
  • Next, mix together flour, thyme, salt and pepper, sprinkle the flour over the browned meat and stir to coat.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • If you find the soup too thick add more vegetable broth, a little at a time.
  • 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!

    The name grabbed my attention. A steak and potato soup sounded like pure comfort food and it was. This was easy to put together and thoroughly enjoyed. The addition of the fresh basil gave it a fresh taste. Good luck in the contest.
