Leftover Steak Soup

– Hey, guys, I’m Jennifer Banz
and today on Low Carb with Jennifer,
we are going to be making steak soup
and we’re gonna use leftover steak
and I don’t know if you are like, what,
who has leftover steak ever?
Well, sometimes we do.
If you make a lot of steak,
sometimes you have some left
over so why not make a soup?
So let’s get started.
Now, this might not be the manliest thing
that you would do with steak
but if you’re like me and you love soup,
maybe you would want to make steak soup
with your leftover steak.
So we’ve got about two
pounds of sirloin steak here
that we’re going to cut into
cubes, bite size pieces.
You wanna make sure and
cut any tough parts off
like any gristly parts.
So I’m just gonna cut this all
into cubes and set it aside
and then we can get started on our soup.
Okay, we’ve got our steak all cut up
in this bowl right here.
So we’re gonna set that aside
and we’re gonna start making
the base for our soup.
We’re gonna start off with some butter.
We’re gonna add in some avocado oil.
Just butter for flavor,
avocado oil for high heat
and now we’re gonna add in our onions.
We’re gonna get these
cooked until they’re soft.
These shouldn’t take very
long because they were frozen.
You know I just love my frozen onions.
They soften quicker and
they are already chopped.
It’s my favorite ingredient.
So we’re gonna let these
soften for about five minutes.
Okay, our onions are looking nice and soft
so I’m gonna go ahead and
add in our seasonings.
This is some dried parsley
and we’ve got some minced garlic
and we’ve got some dry thyme
and some Italian seasoning
and I’m also gonna add in the mushrooms.
This is like eight ounces.
Oh, this is a pound of
sliced baby bella mushrooms.
So we are gonna cook these
down until they are soft.
It’s gonna be about another five minutes
and this smells so good.
All of that, the seasonings
and the butter and mushrooms
and it’s one of the best
smells in the world.
Okay, our mushrooms are looking
nice and soft and perfect
so I’m gonna go ahead and
sprinkle in some xanthan gum.
If you don’t know what
that is, it is a thickener
and you can find it in a lot of ice creams
and it’s in a lot of store-bought products
but it’s a thickener that
is really low in carbs
because you don’t have to use very much
and you can buy it in the grocery store.
It’s available at Walmart.
You can find it on the baking aisle
with all of the other gluten-free items
but we will activate it by
boiling the water but I’m gonna,
I mean boiling the beef broth
but first I’m gonna add in the beef broth
and we’re gonna bring this to a boil
and we don’t wanna put
in our steak just yet.
We wanna put it in right
before this is ready to serve.
Just enough time to
heat the steak through.
We don’t want to cook it really anymore
because it’s already perfectly cooked.
So we are going to let this
come to a simmer to thicken.
Okay, our soup is simmering nicely
so it’s time to add in the steak.
Okay, we just wanna heat this
through for a few minutes.
It’s looking super delicious
and it’s almost ready.
This is a really quick soup.
It’s perfect for a weeknight soup.
I love soup.
I can eat it every day of the week.
I can eat it in the summer.
It doesn’t matter when it is
but this has really got
me wishing for fall.
So let’s give a taste
and make sure it’s got enough seasoning.
Mm.
Perfect.
I put about,
I wanna say I put about a
teaspoon of salt in there
and it’s perfect.
So look at that.
Look at that delicious steak
soup that looks amazing
and it is ready to serve
and I wanna bet that even
a manly picky husband
might like this soup or kids.
It’d be a good soup to
introduce to your kids
if your kids like mushrooms
but anyway, you can find
the link to the recipe,
a printable recipe if
you wanna print it out.
It’s in the description below
or you can find the full
recipe in the description below
and I hope you like this soup
and it’s perfect for fall.
I will see you guys later.
Bye.
