Yes. You read that correctly. I know it’s very Rachael Ray of me to say “stoup.” What is STOUP? It’s a cross between soup and stew.
If you love Beef Stew you are going to flip over this easy, delicious recipe for Beef Pot Pie Soup.
Last year I made a Chicken Pot Pie Soup that is still one of our favorites. And you can see many readers love it too!
Growing up we ate a lot of pot pies for dinner. I remember we had choices of chicken, turkey or beef. I almost always chose chicken…but the beef were so good too. I’ve been wanting to make a beef version of that soup for some time now.
One of my favorite additions to the pot pie soup last year was making the pie crust strips. I did this again for today’s recipe! Just lay your pie crust (I use Pillsbury ready made) onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Use a pastry cutter (or pizza cutter) to cut strips. Bake and enjoy on the soup. I always use both pie crusts, since my family gobbles these down while the soup is cooking.
For the soup, use a big soup pot, I like this Le Creuset Dutch Oven (5 1/2qt pot). You can cook everything right in one pot! Makes a great gift too.
Once your STOUP is made, serve it up in some bowls with your pie crust strips. The leftovers (if you have any) thicken up just like beef stew. So you can eat it as stew the next day. Or, thin it out with some beef broth. Another option for the stoup would be adding in some carrots, broccoli and/or peas. I use whatever I have in my kitchen! ENJOY!
