    Nice flavor, good kick. Really easy to prepare. I pretty much tripled this recipe. Regardless, it definitely needs more beef stock than the recipe calls for as the potatoes need something to simmer in. I also simmered the beef chunks (as I only had sirloin in the house) for about a half-hour before adding any additional ingredients to help it soften more. I used A-1 Steaksauce w/Lea & Perrins Worcester, more chili powder, a bit less cayenne and zero salt at all. Next time, I'll thicken the broth up as it was begging to be a more hearty, satisfying gravy-type broth instead. All in all though, it was tasty and I'd make it again.

    I made this using up leftover tenderloin. This recipe will take on the flavor of whatever steak sauce you use. I used A1. I made the soup less potatoes the day before serving. I added the cubed potatoes to the soup but needed to add more broth. Then I simmered it for about 30 minutes to get the potatoes cooked. It is good, simple and has a little kick.
