Well, I for one am glad that I have finished the 10 recipes with 5 ingredients, as much fun as that was ... I do enjoy just a few more ingredients to a meal. I have a couple of questions though... did you like the recipe format I used ? compared to my normal method of just showing you what went into the dish ? Please leave a comment below , thanks.
Soup , is always a great choice ... its good any season of the year , for lunch , dinner, even breakfast !! I love a good soup, my only problem with making them .. is that I tend to turn them into stews!! So I was determined the other day to create one , that not only was healthy and tasted great , but that actually resembled a soup!!
Ingredients Required :
1L of beef broth , or stock ( this is the last of my store bought , gone forever from my kitchen now)
1lb of a variety of mushrooms I had white , portabello, shitake and oyster
2 cups of cooked ground beef
3 cloves of garlic
1/2 can of your favourite ale. ( This is a local craft brew , very good !! )
A couple of pats of butter
Salt n Pepper to taste
|Here is what you will need|
|Simply slice everything up , bite sized for the mushrooms and a medium dice for the onion|
|Add it right into the soup pot , butter in first then all the onions, mushrooms and garlic together . Season with your favourite herbs, I went with basil , thyme and oregano/:) Med/High heat .|
|Once the Mushrooms and onions have softened just a bit , add the beef in . Give it all a good stir.|
|Meanwhile , you need some good bread to go with soup.... I found this at a local Persian Food market that just opened up nearby :) What a bargain for $1,50 for a 3 foot long piece of bread.|
|And this is were the pot of bubbling soup should go ??!? For whatever reason , either I lost or deleted the shot , or simply forgot to take one. However its an easy step. Don't forget to taste the seasoning , adjust as required.|
|That's its , ladle some into your favourite soup bowl, grab a few hunks of bread and your set .|
|Dinner is served, Mushroom Beef and Ale soup!!|
Its not that often that I impress myself, but this dish did!! I'm very happy with this , and will be making it again in the near future , this time with my own beef stock.
