Reviews for Steak 'N' Vegetable Soup
"Excellent soup. I followed the recipe pretty closely, eliminating only the salt. I agree with ahmom: the balsamic vinegar was a great addition! Great blend of flavors. I think other vegetables could be substituted--corn, green beans, for example."
"Very plan had no kick to it. Bland tasting."
"I like "chunky" soups and this was great! I used stew meat in place of the steak, beef bouillon cubes instead of the beef stock, and omitted the chives. I would make this again."
"The balsamic vinegar makes the soup!"
