Patricia's StoryThis is my first time posting a recipe. I hope you like it.
One of my favorite dinners is steak, stewed tomatoes, and rice. One day I had some leftovers and it just wasn't enough to make another meal so I decided to put them all together and make a soup. It turned out better than I had expected. Now I make it the next day after having my favorite dinner. To me it is comfort food. I hope you enjoy it as well.
leftover stewed tomatoes (with the juice)
leftover rice (white or brown; both work)
beef broth (as much or as little as you want/need)
salt and pepper to taste
1Take the leftover steak and cut into small/bite size pieces. Put in a pot with enough beef broth to cover. Simmer for about 10 minutes to heat the meat and make it tender.
2Add the stewed tomatoes with its juice and the rice. Stir and simmer for about 10-15 minutes to heat everything through.
3If it is too thick add more beef broth to just thin it out. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Welcome Patricia. Here is an old cooks trick...When you have leftover veggies get a quart freezer container. Add the small amounts to the container and freeze. That way when you want soup you have the veggie mix...FOR FREE

Robyn - I never thought of that but that's a great idea. Michele - Thanks for the tip. I do freeze leftover veggies but usually just take some out for dinner when I haven't had time to get to the store. I'll have to make soup - nothing better to me than a nice bowl of soup. It is one of my favorite comfort foods.
