Steak and Potato Soup

There aren’t many things in life that can bring comfort like a big bowl of soul warming soup. A warm bowl on a cold night does the trick to renew the senses. This Steak and Potato Soup has been a Buttered Home Favorite for YEARS!

Living in a small community, most all of our kids had the privilege to go to a small school all together. Unfortunately, that school was no longer thriving, like so many things in small rural areas, and had to shut down in 2017. It was a sad time.

We have so many sweet memories of many times spent together working at the school along side friends who would become more like family.

Every Halloween our little school would throw a very successful Haunted Hayride in the Forest. It ran for 2-3 weekends and was an all in effort by so many people. It was no small undertaking. We spent many nights in the woods in the cold waiting to scare the paying customers.

We broke bread together, worked together and formed a bond that is strong to this very day. This soup was born from that bond.

In Memory of South Montgomery County Academy and the bonds formed at the Haunted Hayride in the Forest, here is The Buttered Home’s Steak and Potato Soup.

How to make Steak and potato Soup

~ Ingredients ~

  • 1 pound sirloin or bottom round steak, grilled or pan seared and cubed.

  • 4 medium potatoes, peeled, cubed and cooked

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1/4 cup diced onions

  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic

  • Salt and Pepper to taste

  • 2-4 tablespoons plain flour

  • 2-4 cups cooking liquid from potatoes

  • 2 cups milk

  • 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese

  • extra cheese and green onion for garnish

~ Method ~

  1. Prep by cooking steak and allow to rest before cutting. Peel, cube and boil potatoes until soft. Drain, saving cooking liquid.

  2. In a large soup pot, melt butter and oil at medium heat. Add in onions, salt and pepper and cook until soft. Add in garlic and red pepper flakes and cook for no more than one minute. The garlic will burn quickly so cook just until fragrant. Add in flour and a soft paste or ball will form. Cook for just a minute or two more.

  3. Add in potatoes and stir to coat well with the flour mixture. Slowly add in 2 cups of the potato cooking liquid and whisk until it starts to thicken. Reserve the rest to thin soup to your liking. You can leave potatoes chunky or use and immersion blender to blend until desired smoothness.

  4. Slowly add in milk and continue to simmer until reaches desired consistency. Can thin with potato liquid if soup is too thick. Should really only take about 15-25 minutes on medium heat to thicken. Add in steak and cheese and simmer until heated through. Garnish with more cheese and some green onions or parsley and Enjoy!

Steak and potato soup

So whether you need something to make you feel better or to feed a small crowd, this soup will do the trick. We spent many a cold night by a burn barrel waiting for the next wagon to come. This soup warmed our bones and gave us the fuel we needed to keep going when we were tired enough to quit.

Soups are a great way to make food memories. We especially love easy ones like Steak and Potato or this gorgeous Sausage, Spinach and Tortellini soup. Food always conjures up memories for me. This soup will always bring back fond memories of community and cause. Not to mention, people still ask me for it to this day. I think it may have soul changing qualities.

As always, we would love it if you shared this recipe with your family and friends. Over to the side on this post and all of the others are handy dandy share buttons. We would sure be grateful if you shared the love!
