Spicy Beef Soup

Tale of the Spicy Beef Soup:
My husband: I like this stew, there is no tomato in it. I don’t like tomatoes.
Me: it’s not a stew, it’s a soup. Stews have tomato, which makes them a stew.
My husband: well I like this stew
Me: that’s because it’s not a stew, it’s a soup 😬🤣😅😊😋

What makes a Stew a Stew?

Well ok, generally tomatoes can go in either a soup or a stew- but the real difference between the two is that a stew is thicker and the meat will indeed be stewed. In stews I use large whole canned tomatoes (which give my husband PTSD about tomatoes) and in soups I use crushed tomatoes, so they aren’t so apparent.

If you like soup recipe, be sure to also try my Copycat Italian Sausage and Kale Soup and my Red Shrimp and Corn Chowder.

Some tips for my Spicy Beef Soup:

This dish can be served with cooked rice if you prefer. Just toss a couple of spoonfuls in your bowl.

Stew Beef takes time to cook. Don’t rush the process.

Normally I add the potatoes in the last hour of cooking. It is up to you on how you like the texture if your potato to be.

I use both veggie broth and beef broth because it helps balance out the taste.

Don’t worry if you’re #teamstew and #teamilovetomatoes, I will post my stew recipe soon!
