Favorite Ingredients Friday for November 21
CLASSIC STEAK & CHEESE SOUP
3 frozen beef sandwich steaks 1 onion, peeled, quartered and sliced 8 ounces sliced fresh mushrooms 1/2 cup (or more, to taste) diced or sliced green bell pepper 1/4 cup flour 3 cups beef broth 1 cup milk (or more, to taste) Salt & pepper to taste 8 ounces Velveeta-type cheese, cubed
Cut the steaks in strips. Cook steak strips, stirring, in a Dutch oven over medium heat until most of the pink is gone. Add onion, mushrooms, and green peppers. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring, for about 10 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Stir in flour. Remove from heat; gradually add broth and milk. Return to heat; cook, stirring often, until thickened and bubbly. Stir in cheese and continue to cook until cheese is melted. Add salt and pepper to taste; if soup is too thick for your taste, add milk until it is the consistency you like. Makes 4 to 6 servings.
My family loves steak and cheese sub sandwiches, so I invented this yummy soup full of the same flavors. A bowl full will warm you up on the chilliest winter night!

I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
