Finally!!…A “Hearty Man’s” Soup

Stuff you Blokes will need…

(No sheilas in the kitchen this can become annoying for you blokes otherwise)

For all the yanks: A “Sheila” is a colloquial term for a girl or woman in Australia

2 tablespoons olive oil
600g of beef, trimmed, cut into small chunks
2 bloody large brown onions chopped it like a man coarsely
1 clove garlic, crushed
1.5 litres (6 cups) water
1 cup (250ml) beef stock
400g can diced tomatoes
2 celery stalks (200g), cut into man bits
2 medium carrots so the wife thinks you are eating veggies cut into  pieces
4 small potatoes cut into bit pieces
310g can corn kernels, rinsed, drained
½ cup (60g) frozen peas (its easy this way)

Cookin it….

Heat half of the oil in large saucepan; cook beef, in batches, until browned.

Heat remaining oil in same pan; cook onion and garlic, stirring, until onion softens. Return beef to pan with the water, stock and undrained tomatoes; bring to the boil. Reduce heat; simmer, covered, 1½ hours.

Add celery, carrot and potato to soup; simmer, uncovered, about 20 minutes or until vegetables are tender.

Add corn and peas to soup; stir over heat until peas are tender…(for those that can’t resist…..add a nip of rum for good measure)

Now go somewhere quite and savour your Aussie master piece….Give only to your closest mates!!!

No woman allowed…!!!
