Introduction

Easy to make, and you probably have all the ingredients on hand already.
My mom use to make this in our family restaurant; it always sold out quickly!

    It was fantastic! However...it does not serve even close to 12 people. I doubled the ingredients (except for the liquid and only used 1.5 cups of water with the beef broth) and got 5 servings. - 12/14/10

    I made this and LOVED it. I wanted to try another recipe BUT my husband said "WHY" you found the right one the first time. Yes, as always it is better the second day . Good the first day, too. - 3/17/09

    Our whole family loved this soup (including two Korean exchange students who are not always easy to please!). I browned lean ground turkey and used it in place of the beef. I'll be making this on a regular basis. Thanks for sharing! - 4/1/10

    I just got finished eating this and I was not expecting this to be as good as it was. Excellent flavor. I did everything as the recipe except that I decreased the water by 1 cup. I used chuck and it was tough so I might try a better cut of beef next time. I WILL make this again! - 12/28/09

    Added a zucchini, turnip, parsnip, green beans and a tin of corn. Using my slow cook, but already the flavourings are fantastic. - 5/23/12
