Easy Beef and Bacon Soup

Here's What You Need

  • 1 1/2 lb beef chuck roast trimmed
  • 1/2 tsp ground sage
  • 4 c fresh spinach leaves
  • 1 c pearl onions (optional)
  • 6 medium golden yukon potatoes
  • 4 c water***
  • 6 slices thick cut bacon cut into small pieces
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 4 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • salt and peper to taste

Here's What You Do

  1. Slice beef into bite sized chunks, the sprinkle with salt and pepper.

  2. Add beef, garlic, and olive oil to a stock pot and sauté on medium. Once meat it browned, add bacon pieces.

  3. (While bacon is cooking, slice potatoes into medium sized chunks).

  4. Once bacon is cooked, if you find there to be excess oil in the pan, you can drain. This is optional, and totally based on preference.

  5. Add water, potatoes, pearl onions (if using), spinach leaves, ground sage, and salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Continue simmering until potatoes are tender, stirring only occasionally.

  6. Remove from heat and serve immediately, adding more salt and pepper to taste! Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

  1. You can add more water if you find that your soup is too thick, but if you do, just let it simmer a bit longer to add more flavor to the water. Alternatively, you can use beef stock or vegetable stock in place of water, but pay attention to ingredients if you want this recipe to remain Whole30 compliant!
