Mr. Food: Steakhouse Soup

Are you looking for great and filling meal, but don't have the time to cook it? Well, Mr. Food has a mouth watering idea as he debuts right here on "Live at Five."

Who doesn't like a good steak? Well, many steakhouses which are so popular today are famous for not only turning out some of the best steaks, but for using up the little trimmed pieces of steak, and we can make a rave steak soup like that!

In a soup pot we heat a couple tablespoons of vegetable oil over a medium-high heat. We add 1-1/2 pounds of sirloin steak that’s been cut into thin strips, 1/2 pound of sliced fresh mushrooms, and 1 chopped, large sweet onion.

We cook that for about 12 to 15 minutes, and when the steak is browned and the onion is tender, add in 3 cans of ready to use beef broth, 4 cups water, 1/2 cup dry red wine, 3 cubed large potatoes and 2 teaspoons of a steak seasoning.

Bring it all to a boil, turn down the heat, cover and simmer it for about half an hour or so (until the steak and potatoes are tender) and done! It's a lot like they'd do at a steakhouse.

And when we ladle up this rich, hearty, tummy-warmer in bowls and sprinkle on some parmesan cheese or shredded Monterey Jack cheese, we've got a comforting "bowl" for any night, and it’s perfect timing for our upcoming football night parties!

They'll think it came from a steakhouse, but uh uh, we made it in our house and "ooh, it's so good!!®"
