In the Oven Today...

My house smells yummy!!  I am making,
Baked Steak Soup

3 lbs. stew meat (I used New York steak)
3 large carrots, peeled and sliced
8 oz. mushrooms, sliced
1 yellow onion, diced
2 large potatoes, peeled and diced
28 oz. can tomatoes, crushed with juice
10 1/2 oz. can beef consomme
1/4 cup white wine (water can be substituted)
4 Tbs. Tapioca (I couldn't find this, so it's not in mine)
1 Tbs. brown sugar
1/2 c bread crumbs
1 Bay leaf
salt and pepper to taste
peas, canned or frozen, added toward the end of cooking (I didn't use)

Mix, cover and put in the oven at 250 for 6-7 hours.

This recipe is from a cookbook called "Herat & Soul" by Among Friends.  Everything I have made from any of their cookbooks has been delicious!  I have made this soup several times and it has always been a hit.  Today I am sure my peeps will LOVE it because there are 50 mile and hour winds and pouring rain here!
