Steak Soup

To help calm me while I was driving home on icy roads, I created a recipe in my mind - with ingredients I knew I had on hand, and Darn, I can hardly stand myself it was so good!



  • 1.5 lb. steak, cooked, cut up into bite sized pieces (I used pork shoulder blade steak)
  • 2 - 14.5 oz. cans stewed tomatoes, with peppers, celery, and cumin
  • 1 - 6.5 oz. can mushrooms
  • 1 - 11 oz. can Mexican corn
  • 4 cups beef broth
  • 4 cups water
  • 1- 16 oz. can Baby Butter Beans 
  • 1 pkg  Gnocchi   
  • 1 Tbs each of, Cumin, Oregano, Onion Powder, Garlic Powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Place all ingredients except Gnocchi in pot on a low boil for 1/2 hr.  Place Gnocchi in pot and allow to boil for 3 minutes until they rise to the top.  Serve with Parmesan Cheese on top and crusty hot- buttered bread on the side.

Pair with a lovely Merlot or Syrah ~
