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!
