Steak Soup Recipe

Meet the Cook: One of the nice things about this thick soup is you can make it in an afternoon without too much fuss. I've found that it's good for soccer-practice evenings - with our sons 18, 17 and 9, we have gotten accustomed to many of those! -Mary Dice, Chemainus, British Columbia

"Two large slices of eye of round were wearing out their welcome in my freezer which is the reason I searched for and tried this recipe, never really thinking this cut of meat would work for a tasty soup. Even down to the tasting prior to adding the tomato paste, I wasn't impressed so I added 1 teaspoon of chili powder. Adding the tomato paste made a huge difference in the taste of this soup and we really liked it. I did brown the meat in a dutch oven but transferred it to a crockpot; adding the veggies late allowed them to retain some crispness. I make soup all year round so always need good recipes and my husband agrees this one is a "keeper." I think chuck would be better than eye of round however."

"This tasted like an average beef stew but cost more to make. It isn't bad, just not worth the trouble and expense."

"This was a great soup and my wife and kids loved it. I did use soul seasoning rather than marjoram and I added bell peppers. I also used kosher salt when browning the meat and Marinara sauce rather than tomato past. Great soup."
