How to Make Steak Soup Recipe
This soup comes together in just over an hour.
- Brown meat over medium high heat with melted butter.

- Stir together broth, water, Worcestershire sauce, tomatoes, onions and seasonings in a pot along with meat over medium heat.
- Bring to a boil and then simmer for 30-45 minutes.

Tips for Making Beef Soup
- Steak. Cut steak for steak soup into small, even bite size pieces so they cook evenly.
- 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. You could also use frozen vegetables if you prefer such as zucchini and mushrooms.
