View Full Version : Anyone have a favorite beef soup recipe to share?
08-16-2010, 04:34 PM
I've had a craving for a really good, hearty beef soup lately. Not a broth based soup, but more of a thicker soup (light gravy type) with veggies and possibly barley or wild rice. Maybe I'm thinking more of a stew? I've tried the Oven Baked Stew that's popular on this board, but I'd like to try something different. Any recommendations?

I love this one from CL and it is fairly simple to make. It is a broth base though. You could always thicken it with a bit of cornstarch.
