Steak Soup (beef stew- recipe)


Yesterday was brrrrr cold for Central Texas…but what a great excuse to make a yummy hot pot of Steak Soup! My Mom always called it that – but it’s really just old-fashioned beef stew… plain & simple. After a 1/2 an hour simmer on this and your house will smell deeee-vine! The longer it cooks – the better it is. Add a fresh loaf of hot french bread and everyone at the table will be smiling – not to mention full.
