Now you may know by now, if you are a regular reader, what a soup nazi I am.
'No soup for you!'
Actually I love making soups, for everyone. My slow cooker and dutch oven are my best friends, and help me out a lot.
So with the love of Shepherd's Pie and the love of soup, how about a mash-up?!
|Shepherd's Pie Soup|
- 2 tsp olive oil
- 1 onion, chopped
- 2 cloves of garlic, minced
- 2 tsp of fresh thyme
- 450 g of extra lean ground beef, raw (the $5 pack)
- 1 large carrot, diced
- 1 rib of celery, diced
- 3 white potatoes, large, cut in small chunks
- 2 tbsp tomato paste
- 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
- 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
- 1 900ml package of beef broth
- 1/4 tsp pepper
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 cup of frozen peas
In Dutch oven or deep, large pot, heat oil over medium-high heat. Sauté onion, garlic and thyme until onion is soft. (About 2 minutes.)
Add beef, carrot, celery, and potatoes and cook until meat is no longer pink. Make sure to break up beef in bite size chunks when cooking. This takes about 3-5 minutes.
Stir in tomato paste, mustard, and Worcestershire sauce and cook until it thickens slightly. About 2 minutes.
Add broth, pepper, salt and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until potatoes are tender. This takes about 6-8 minutes. Stir in peas and cook about 1-2 minutes more.
