We are definitely in a soup mode around here. My husband loves soup for dinner but I know there are some men that don’t consider soup a meal. Today’s recipe for Steak Soup is a meal. It is pretty much a complete meal. You’ve got your vegetables, your starch and your protein all in one bowl.
What Kind of Steak is Best to Use in Soup?
Tender cuts of steak are best for soup. I like to use sirloin or a top round steak. You could also buy the precut stew meat you can find in the grocery store. Make sure your meat is cut into uniform size pieces so it cooks evenly.
Tips for Making Beef Soup
Steak. I used sirloin steak cut into even size pieces.
Potatoes. Use a waxy potato such as a red or Yukon Gold. They hold up better in the soup. A russett potato will disintegrate after simmering for any length of time. Cut potatoes into even bite size pieces.
Vegetables. Be sure and cut your vegetables into even size pieces too. I used carrots, celery and corn but you could add any your favorite vegetables.
How to Make Steak Soup
This soup comes together in just over an hour.
- Brown. Over medium heat, melt butter and lightly brown meat.
- Mix. Mix together flour, paprika, salt and pepper and sprinkle over meat, this will act as a bit of a thickener.
- Combine. Add broth, water, Worcestershire sauce, tomatoes, onions and seasonings in a pot along with meat.
- Simmer. Simmer for 30-45 minutes.
- Add. Add inn vegetables and simmer for another 15 minutes. If you like your veggies a little crisp like we do, just cook them until fork tender.
What to Serve with Steak Soup
Throw together a loaf of No Knead Artisian Bread the night before to serve with your soup. Or as your soup simmers you can quickly make a loaf of Easy French Bread or 30 Minute Rolls. You’ve got a delicious and hearty meal that will make even your “soup is not a meal” believers happy
Can Steak Soup Be Frozen?
Yes, steak soup can be frozen. Just place in an airtight container or zippered plastic bag removing as much air as possible and store in freezer for up to three months. If I know I am going to freeze the soup before eating it I will slightly undercook the vegetables so they don’t get mushy when I reheat it.
Can I Make Steak Soup in the Crock Pot?
