Soup Sunday-Beef Curry Soup

Most of the recipes I write about in my blog are modified. Sometimes I see what I am hungry for and make up a recipe.  I decided on a curry and when I went grocery shopping picked out vegetables I thought would be good in a beef curry.  This recipe is Thai inspired. I had lots of curry when I visited Thailand and I just loved it. So I make curry themed dishes often at home. Thai curry does not contain turmeric or curry powder. That was my addition because they are both such healthy spices.

Feel free to customize this recipe for your tastes and for what you have on hand.

4 cups beef bone broth
1 can coconut milk
2 cups shredded beef
1/2 medium yellow onion chopped
1 red bell pepper chopped
1 large sweet potato chopped
1 small zucchini sliced
4  ounces sliced mushrooms
4 ounces fresh green beans, sliced into 1/4 inch pieces.
1 tablespoon turmeric powder
2 teaspoons curry powder
1 tablespoon red Thai curry paste
2 small dried red peppers
Salt and pepper to taste.
Chopped cilantro

Add the beef broth to a large stock pot.  Heat the broth to a simmer. As the broth is heating up add the beef, onions, sweet potato and mushrooms.  Heat for 20 minutes until the potatoes are cooked.  Add the zucchini, red pepper and green beans.  Cook for 2-3 minutes. Add the turmeric powder, curry powder and curry paste.  Add the dried red pepper.  Stir in the coconut milk and cook for about five minutes. Remove the dried red peppers.  Ladle into bowls and serve topped with chopped cilantro.

Serves 8
