Winter Warmer: Beef Soup with Clear Broth

It’s winter but you don’t feel like having any too hearty or too thick like cream soup or stew – then this beef soup is for you.

You’ll need:
400 grams rump steak, sliced
3-4 rashers of bacon, chopped
2 medium size potatoes, peeled and cubed
2 carrots, peeled and cubed
½ onion, chopped
1 coriander root, bruised
A tablespoon of chopped coriander leaves too garnish
3 – 4 cups of beef or chicken stock
Salt & Pepper

In a casserole over medium heat, fry bacon until a bit brown and renders some oil. Add chopped onion and fry further until soft. Brown the beef then add potatoes and carrots and fry for a couple more minutes. Add stock, bring to the boil. Put the lid on the casserole and simmer for an hour. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve warm with sprinkled coriander leaves.

If you like it a little bit more starchy, you can add a bit of cooked rice or barley.
