Hearty Steak Soup

Total Time

Prep: 15 min. Cook: 30 min.


8-10 servings (4 quarts)

My husband and I live in a small farming community and we've been married for more than 40 years, so I've been cooking for a long time. Our granddaughters love to come and help me cook—especially when the result is this soup. We like it with toasted French bread and a crisp salad for a complete meal.—Waldeane Logan, Butler, Missouri
