I’d use any full flavoured beer that you’d enjoy drinking 🙂

What sort of beef would be best to use for this?

You can use liquid stock or make it up from powder stock or stock cubes 🙂

Wow, what a yum soup. Instead of mince, I used diced oyster blade steak, and it was like having a Campbell’s Chunky Soup. So full of flavor but with less salt. I am very glad to have another soup recipe. I was getting sick of having the same old pumpkin or chicken soup.
Thanks, Sarah Seddon, for sharing your recipe.
