One pot meal fill a bowl with comfort: Mushroom pot roast soup

See also

One pot meals are a delight to learn about when you are cooking for a family or even for yourself. The time involved is usually a lot less, plus the time doing dishes is very minimal too. Comfort food can be anything these days but pot roast is an all-time favorite of so many. After you prepare a pot roast dinner for the family and have that left over beef you don’t have to eat the same meal again. Instead use that deliciously flavored beef and prepare a simple pot of soup. Now you can get that same flavor in a bowl and leave the fork and knife in the drawer. Add some mushrooms and dig into a steaming bowl of hot mushroom pot roast soup for a fabulously comforting dinner.

Ingredients:

  • 1 (8 ounce) can of sliced mushrooms
  • ¼ cup of flour
  • ¼ cup of red wine
  • 4 cups of beef broth
  • 2 cups of pot roast beef, shredded
  • 3 tablespoons of butter
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, chopped finely
  • ½ teaspoon of parsley
  • ¼ teaspoon of bacon salt

Directions:

  1. In a large soup pot, melt the butter over a medium-high heat.
  2. Add in the onions and mushrooms and cook them down for about 20 minutes until the liquid evaporates and the vegetables are tender.
  3. Toss in the garlic and spices, stir into the mushrooms and onions and cook for an additional minute or two.
  4. Now mix the flour into the pot and cook for about 5 minutes.
  5. Pour in the wine, beef broth and pot roast meat.
  6. Stir the soup and bring to a boil.
  7. Once the soup comes to a boil lower the flame to a simmer and cook for approximately 15-20 minutes further.
  8. Toss in the parsley at the last minute before removing the pot from the stove.
  9. Transfer the soup to a tureen and serve while hot.
  10. Enjoy!

Suggestions:

  • Have a loaf of Italian or French bread at the ready to soak up the soup juices while you eat.
  • Start off this meal with a small salad if you desire.
  • Peel and slice baby carrots and add them to the pot when you add the mushrooms. String beans are also great to include for some added veggies.
