Steak Soup from Paradise Grill
« on: April 13, 2016, 03:48:34 PM »
As I understand it, the Branson, Missouri, restaurant that featured this soup is no longer in business, although there IS presently a Paradise Grill & Steakhouse in Branson. At any rate - this recipe is a keeper.

1½ lbs. ground beef
2 cups chopped onion
1 cup sliced carrots
1 cup diced celery
1 tbsp. minced garlic
3 cans chicken broth
1 pint canned tomatoes
2 tbsp. worcestershire sauce
1 tsp. tabasco sauce
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup flour (delete this for best low-carb)

Brown the ground beef in a large kettle, adding onion, carrots, celery & garlic and cooking until vegetables are almost tender - 10-12 minutes. Pour off grease if you must, but for LCHF, it isn't necessary. Add broth, tomatoes, Worcestershire, Tabasco and black pepper; bring to boiling, reduce heat and cook 15 minutes.

For low-carb version, delete the flour and save yourself doing this step (the soup will still be splendid): As the soup cooks, melt the butter in a small skillet, add the flour and cook over medium/high heat, stirring constantly, until flour turns a deep brown color. Whisk it into the soup; simmer 15 minutes longer. Makes 6 - 8 servings.

 :-[  This is why I never have a true fasting blood sugar . . . after a three-hour sleep (and about a six-hour fast), I awoke just before midnight, and darn! That soup was shouting at me from clear inside the refrigerator!  :P  So I ate a cupful and it's one of those dishes that keeps getting better the longer it sets. Good thing it makes a big kettleful.  ;D

One must not eat for 8 hours for it to be a true fasting, right ?

That's how I've understood it . . . I just hate to waste a strip if I've eaten less than eight hours before. I suspect others do differently.  8)

This really looks good!  I think I am going to make a single serve, somewhat revised version for dinner tonight.  The weather is perfect for soup!

I don't have any hamburger but I do have a ground lamb patty.  All the veggies I have (1/2) of a fresh roma tomato should be enough) and even chicken bone broth.  No flour thickener for me!  Maybe some sour cream or cream cheese....will have to see on those.

This is the recipe that first got me started using wooster & tabasco together in seasoning. It's a marriage made in heaven!  ;)

Frozen meat is thawing for me to make another pot of this tomorrow.  I freeze containers of it for other meals.  Happy to hear of other ways to spark it up.

What is Frank's?  Haven't seen it in stores here.

Frank's is a cayenne hot sauce - I use it when I make naked hot wings. A lot the same as Crystal hot sauce since they're both cayenne sauces. It's hard to make a comparison of these sauces because their companies are so territorial about their peppers & their recipes, but tabasco original sauce appears to be made only from a tabasco pepper, while the company markets other sauces like habanero & jalapeno.

I made it with left over ground been/mild Italian sausage from my VAT of spaghetti sauce and remembered that 1 t. of Tabasco is too much for me.  I added a can of green beans and of course left out the flour, but altho' too hot for me, it was wonderful as ever. I liked the flavor the Italian sausage added to it.
