Tasty Beef Soup

I made this soup this evening, improvising with what I had in my fridge and I was so happy with it I thought I should share the recipe.

You could have this dish on a cold winter evening and it really is a meal all in one. You don't need any additional rice or carbs although you could try it with a few pieces of toast.

You can be flexible as always with my recipes, try variations of vegetables and meat.

Ingredients:

1 serving of gravy beef sliced into large bite size chunks
2 large garlic cloves
1 large onion sliced into rings
2 small fresh or canned tomatoes
Fresh or dried chilli chopped or flaked to taste
1 tsp laska powder
2 bay leaves
1 tbsp of low salt soya sauce
1 large potato chopped into quarters
small piece of green capsicum
small piece of broccoli
olive oil
water
1 tbsp flour
pinch of salt & grown black pepper
1 tsp of marmite (optional)

tasty beef soup 
Method

Heat large saucepan
Place oil into saucepan when hot
when oil has heated place onion rings, a minute later place beef cubes in and brown lightly while stirring.

Place garlic & chilli in pan and continue to fry lightly for another minute.

Place tomatoes in saucepan along with enough cold water to cover sauce pan half way (about 3- 4 cups)

Place potatoes in to the saucepan along with bay leaves, salt, pepper, laska powder, marmite, soya sauce.

Continue to cook for 1 hour with lid on saucepan on low heat.

After 1 hour place other vegetables in and continue to cook with lid on very slowly for further 2 hours.

Take off heat after 2 hours. Mix flour into a cup with a tiny bit of water to make paste until smooth. Add flour paste to soup and heat for a further 2-3 minutes while mixing flour in as the soup thickens.

The soup is now ready, pour into large bowls and serve.

*Optional, you can substitute any vegetables like carrot or celery in place of broccoli and capsicum.
