Ingredients

1lb – 12 oz of Stewing beef or strip loin chopped in cubes. I used the last pieces from a whole strip loin.

8 Cups of Beef Broth

1 Cup chopped carrots

1 Cup chopped celery

1 Yellow Onion finely chopped

1tsp salt

1tsp pepper

5 Cups chopped Potatoes

2 Bay leaves

1 All spice ball

2 garlic cloves minced

1/4 tsp mint

1/4 tsp basil

1 tbs flour and 1tsp gravy powder (mix with a little beef broth and add it at the end of cooking as a thickening agent)

Instructions

I made my own beef broth but feel free to use store bought. I made my broth with scraps of beef, onion, carrots, celery and the same spices in the recipe.

  1. Boil your meat for 15 min in your stock and clean off the foam/dirty froth that forms on the top of your pot. Just spoon it out until there is no foam.
  2. Add all the spices and veggies to your pot and cook for 35 min.
  3. Turn pot off and in a little bowl mix 1 tbs flour and 1tsp gravy powder with some beef broth. Make sure you have no clumps add it to the soup and mix.

This soup tastes even better the next day! So delicious!

8. Add all the ingredients from the oven to the pot of chicken stock. Use a hand held blender and puree it. I prefer my soup with a little texture. You can always puree it a little longer.
