Fantastic - a nice gut filling soup for this crazy Montana winter. Add a little red wine and it'll drive the people wild!
Not very flavorful and I followed the recipe exactly.
I only used one can of beef broth and added a lot of garlic salt and about 1 tsp of Italian seasoning. I also omitted the bag of frozen veggies but took the advice of a prior reviewer and added about 1 c. of red wine. My husband loved it! Topped with aged parmesean and served with fresh beer bread!
This turned out quite good, a really nice soup/stew. Liked the flavor with the peppers and spice, I added more. A quick and easy recipe suggestion that can easliy have different veggies or spices added or substitied to it.
This is a great recipe! I didn't have mushrooms but added a package of Knorr Vegetable soup mix. So yummy!
I'm usually opposed to ground beef in soup, but since I that's all I had, I found this recipe. Not bad! I basically used this as a jump-off point for all the fresh veggies I had sitting around that needed to be used -- a head of cauliflower, bunch of broccoli, carrots, squash, onion. Since I was out of tomatoes, I used a can of tomato paste. Also used two beef bouillon and two chicken/tomato bouillon, since that's what I had. I also wanted to thicken it and stretch it some, so added about a 1/2 cup barley.
So, basically I barely followed the recipe at all... but I am of the opinion that it's hard to go wrong making soup. Throw in what you have, throw in some spices, let it simmer and voila: soup. This is a great starting point recipe.
Very easy to make & my kids LOVED it!
This had some heat, and I didn't even add the red pepper flakes! I nixed the cauliflower, added red wine, and halved the beef broth. I used the crockpot (browned beef first) and threw everything in on low to cook all day. DELISH.
