A whole30 compliant meal in a bowl – full of tender meat chunks and yummy veggies

hearty-beef-soup-800x600

Here is another recipe brought to you courtesy of my time doing the Whole30.  I was looking for a hearty soup recipe that I could use to fill in a weeknight dinner, something that I hadn’t made before and this beef soup caught my eye.  Well, wasn’t hard to when I searched for ‘Whole30 beef soup recipes’ on the Internet!  Anyway, I thought this recipe looked easy to make and with no strange ingredients, so I tried it.  And I loved it.  And so did the family.  Grant recommends adding a little Worcestershire sauce in it, but that contains sugar, so I didn’t do that!

It’s strange – most times when I use my slow cooker, my soups turn more into casseroles i.e. less liquid.  This time, I followed the recommended volume exactly and it turned into a soup, even though the original recipe called it a stew.  Grant has often mentioned my soups do need more liquid – this time he said I could have cooked it down a little more.  I just can’t win!  

But one thing is for certain – this soup is a winner in taste, texture and comfort food levels.  Great for those cold winter nights.  Try it and let me know what you think!
