Steak Soup from Paradise Grill

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 looks like something my family would like. Thanks!
Shanny, I made this today. My husband LOVED it! Thanks again!
You're more than welcome, wish! This is one of the few recipes that have passed through my hands without getting tweaked. LOL! The first time I read it, I was thinking 'a little of this, a little of that', and then I forced myself to make it as directed at least once. Boy did I learn my lesson . . . I've NEVER tinkered with this recipe, and I'm an inveterate tinkerer! It's perfect just the way it is! :D :D :D
Sounds so delicious soup here. I wanted to try this at home tonight. I'm a bit interest on this soup. Thanks for sharing this.:)
It hadda happen . . . I finally "tinkered" with it. :eek: Hard to notice though, and I don't think I'll make a habit of it. I just didn't have quite enough ground beef, but I had half a pound of Jimmy Dean bulk sausage already thawed (and it's always really lean), so I used both & I don't think anyone was the wiser (thank heaven! :rolleyes:)

Making it tomorrow! I'll freeze it in servings to eat this fall and winter. Hope I like it, but I usually do with Shanny's recipes.
Wasn't there a restaurant on KC's Plaza that made this famous, in the 60's or 70's? Aw, gawd, what was it ... ? EVERYONE here made it!
That could certainly be . . . I can't remember how I found the recipe, but it coulda been an old Ladies' Home Journal. They used to have a regular column that readers could make requests for exceptional restaurant recipes, and LHJ would go interview the chefs & then publish the recipes. This one was billed as a specialty of Paradise Grill in Branson - back in those days which coulda been 40 years ago.
I'm preparing it today for tonight's supper. It would have to be delicious because I thoroughly enjoy all the ingredients in it. Think I'll have some of Gizmos garlic bread with it... Sounds like a great combo!

Bon appétit
bugg:Dloves a good recipe

I love the steak soup... It is absolutely wonderful! I did change a few things. I added a little more garlic, I added green and red bell pepper, and I added a tablespoon of Canadian steak seasoning... (I'm sorry Shanny I just couldn't hepit)....Heh

bugg:eek: it is so good

I made a pot of it and had a bowl for lunch and used too much meat in it by accident, but it was good. Gotta get more Tabasco as I discovered I was out and substituted a few drops of a similar hot sauce temporarily. It was good, but I agree more garlic would be good.
