"This is good soup. Not terribly exciting but good flavor and hearty. I added fresh corn and used my own homemade beef stock. Will make again for sure"

"I used an Orange Blossom Cream Ale because that was what we had in the fridge. I also added a cup of frozen peas and a cup of frozen corn. Coarsely chopped the onion, carrots and celery in the food processor and added oregano. It had a very sweet flavor to the broth. I also used ground turkey. This is a keeper. Serve with yeast rolls to soak up the broth and it's devine!"

"This recipe was very tasty and my husband is not allowed tomato or tomato products so this was great."

"I'd suggest looking for a different beef & vegetable soup recipe. There are so many out there... and I was disappointed with this one. I thought it would be great, and the beer seemed like a great ingredient. However, the broth was not satisfying, all four people in our family disliked this dish."
