Winter is coming...Anyone wanna share soup recipes?
We were discussing the sudden chill in the air on the other side, and I just thought we should all share our favorite soup recipes.
Mine is pretty simple. Anything here is optional if you don't like it.
1 can whole kernel corn
1 can tomatoes (I get whole tomatoes, then crush them a little bit)
1 can okra
1 can small green lima beans (can substitute green beans)
1 small can mushrooms, chopped.
3 stalks of celery, sliced into pieces about 1/4 inch thick
1 large onion, chopped small
1 tsp chopped garlic
4 medium potatoes, cut into chunks (chop and set aside 2 of them)
5 medium carrots, sliced (chop and set aside three of them)
2 lbs. stew beef or cubed beef roast (cheap chuck roast or round roast is very tasty in this. I usually buy a large one, cut it up into pieces, and use one of the portions for soup).
Salt and pepper to taste
Put corn, okra, tomatoes, mushrooms, celery, two chopped potatoes, two chopped carrots, onion, garlic,and beef into soup pot filled with water, and bring to boil. Turn down to medium and cook for 30 minutes (until meat is done). Turn down to low and cook for two more hours. Add remaining carrots and potatoes, and serve when they are done (about 1/2 hour on low heat).
Be careful not to let the water boil out during cooking.
You can also put this into a crock pot overnight, then add the potatoes and carrots in the morning, but if you do this, don't peel them until you are about to add them.
This tastes better the second day.
