Have I mentioned that I LOVE FALL?
It's true, I do.
I love all things that come with fall....cooler weather,
snuggling with the one I love, beautiful colors, PUMPKIN and soup!
A few days ago I started craving a good steak soup, you know, a good hearty one.  Kind of like the one they sell at Texas Land and Cattle - the smoky sirloin steak soup or whatever it is called.  Not that I have had that soup in like FOREVER.  Anyway, it was on my mind so I decided to try to recreate it.  I'm not sure how close I am to the recipe, but I gave it a try and it turned out FABULOUS!  It got a thumbs up from every.single.person in our house - and that my friends is rare. 
3 lbs of stew meat (whatever you fancy...I used sirloin)
1.5 tsp liquid smoke
lots of fresh crushed pepper
1 onion - diced
6 cups of beef broth (I like to use homemade to make it clean/paleo)
1 - 15 oz can diced tomatoes
1 small package of baby carrots

Toss stew meat (cut into bite size) & onion in a large dutch oven and brown the meat, while browning add liquid some and LOTS of crushed black pepper - just keep turning that mill!   Once meat is nice and brown add 6 cups of  beef broth & can of diced tomatoes. Bring to a boil and cook for about 10 minutes.  Add carrots.  Turn heat down and simmer for 1.5 hours.

**I really think this would be a super easy crockpot meal as well....just toss all ingredients in a crockpot in the morning, cook on low 6-8 hours.
  If you try it let me know...If not when I try it I will let you know! :o)

**I served baked potato and baked sweet potatoes on the side.  You can always throw potatoes in the soup...that's how they do it at Texas Land and Cattle.  :o)
