Easy Beef vegetable soup ( from left over beef)

Deb Crane Recipe

By Deb Crane songchef

Super easy beef vegetable soup from any left over beef you have. This time I had tenderloin left over (which doesnt happen often) but I have used roast,steaks, whatever beef you have left over. This goes almost as fast as opening a can! Ingredients are usually always in stock in your kitchen. Add whatever you fancy. You cant go wrong! The base starts with a rue (melted butter and flour) which gives it a velvety, comfort texture just right for a chilly Autumn day!

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Melt the butter in a large stock pan. When it is melted, add flour and stir to blend.
Immediately add the beef broth (or water and bullion cubes) Whisk constantly till it starts to bubble.
2
Add frozen vegetables, Kitchen Bouquet and pepper.
Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 10 minutes.

After simmering, add your diced meat and can of diced tomatoes.
For the tomatoes, sometimes I use a big can, sometimes I add a smaller can. Depends on what is in the cabinet. It is a very forgiving recipe.
