Steak soup

December 5, 2010

.

It is definitely soup weather! My husband whipped up some delicious steak soup the other day, and it made a perfect hot lunch for us and our sons. I recommend serving it with grilled cheese sandwiches for dunking. Whether or not you use a Spiderman plate and bowl is up to you.

We were shopping for stew meat at the grocery store, but found a great deal on chuck steak, so we got 2 pounds. He cubed it up and browned it in some oil in a Dutch oven until cooked through. Then he added a half-gallon of spicy vegetable juice and an assortment of frozen vegetables. Use whatever you have on hand! Being the king of leftovers, he sliced a few leftover grilled sweet Italian bratwurst links and threw them into the pot as well, along with a little Montreal steak seasoning. The whole thing simmered on our stovetop for a few hours, making the house smell amazing.

The soup was delicious, and definitely hit the spot on a cold day. It made a great addition to the boys’ sack lunches (although I wish I could find a container that would keep hot things HOT until lunchtime!), and it freezes really well. I’m happy to have a husband who knows what he’s doing in the kitchen!
