danica soup

This was supposed to be a post about soup.  This was the only picture I got and my family suggested that I still post.  They cleaned out the pot.

Danica soup is a mainstay in our lives and it is very simple.  I usually serve it with the crescent rolls I posted about last week.  It takes some beef (the more tender the cut, the better), a bit of onion, a few cloves of garlic, potatoes, and broth or water.  The bit of warm bread makes it go all the quicker.

Danica Soup

1 pound thinly sliced, bite size pieces of round steak, chuck, or filet.

1/4 to 1/2 onion, minced

2 tablespoons olive oil

4 cloves garlic minced

1 to 2 teaspoons salt

1/2 to 1 teaspoon black pepper

4 to 8 potatoes, peeled and cut into bite size pieces

4 to 8 cups of water, vegetable broth, or beef broth

In a large pot, put the oil and heat over medium high heat.  Add onion and brown.  Add meat and garlic.  Let the meat brown.  Add the salt and pepper.  Add the potatoes.  Cover with water or broth.  Cook until the potatoes are done. 

Serve in bowls with warm bread.

Watch it disappear, especially on a cold evening.
