From : 300 Sensational SoupsThis is one of those recipes that I have made a hundred times and still love. I use all types of beef - really anything I can turn into enough to make this with - so don't over think that. This keeps in the fridge for up to 3 days in an airtight container. Reheat over low heat in a pot.
