Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 5 pounds sirloin steak, or beef stew meat (or whatever lean steaks are on sale!), cut into about 1″ cubes
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup diced carrots
  • 1 cup diced celery
  • 1 lb. potatoes (I like Yukon Gold), diced and (if desired) peeled
  • 8 cups beef stock
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 (28 oz.) can diced tomatoes, with juice
  • 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon Italian seasoning, homemade or store-bought
  • 1 teaspoon salt, or more/less to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly-ground black pepper
  • (optional garnish: chopped fresh parsley)

Directions

  1. In a large sauté pan, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil over medium-high heat. Add half the steak and cook, stirring frequently, until well browned, about 2 minutes. Remove the steak with a slotted spoon and transfer to the bowl of a large slow cooker.
  2. Add the remaining steak to the pan and cook until browned, then transfer to the bowl of a slow cooker. Add the remaining ingredients to the slow cooker, and stir to combine.
  3. Cook on high for 3-4 hours or on low for 6-8 hours until the steak and vegetables are all tender. Season with additional salt and pepper if needed. Remove the bay leaves when ready to serve.  Serve the soup warm, garnished with chopped fresh parsley if desired.

This recipe was given to me by a friend that was spending the weekend. She knew I enjoyed cooking and wanted to give me a new recipe to try. I have to be perfectly honest and say that had she not been there and insisted that I try it, this recipe would have just gone into my collection file. Boy, am I ever glad that she insisted that I try it. It is now one of our family favorites.
