Last weekend, I had a Tri Tip roast that I had to cook. It was still just too hot to turn on the oven, and my BBQ is broken. I was going to put it in the crockpot, but forgot. (insert violins here). At 4:00 I figured I’d better decide what to do with it and started to search my pantry and fridge and came up with beef broth, onion soup mix, carrots and potatoes.

One of my favorite restaurants is Wood Ranch Grill in Yorba Linda, CA. They have amazing Tri Tip soup. I searched for the recipe and couldn’t find one, so I made one up.

Soup is the ultimate comfort food and this delicious take on traditional beef and vegetable soup will warm your soul on those crisp fall evenings.

Tri Tip Soup
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
2 lbs trimmed Tri Tip, cut into one inch chunks
2 14 oz. cans beef broth
1 package Onion Soup Mix
3 cups water
2 cups potatoes, peeled and cut into 1 in. chunks
2-3 cup raw or frozen vegetables (feel free to be creative here!)
2 Tbsp Minced Garlic
2 tsp Liquid Smoke (optional)

1. Heat olive oil in a 5 quart pot; add Tri Tip and brown on all sides.
2. Add beef broth, water, garlic, Liquid Smoke and onion soup mix. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer for about at least an hour, covered.
3. Add vegetables. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for about 30 minutes, or until vegetables are tender. If using frozen vegetables, add them during the last ten minutes. Season with salt and pepper if desired.
4. Serve and enjoy!

    Soup is such a great comfort food. My mom used to always make soups with beef in them like this. Then when we were eating, her and my dad would spread butter on bread, add sliced raw onions and chunks of the tender beef from their bowls. We used to think that was so gross (raw onions!) but now it is the ultimate in comfort for me. Love this! Thanks for the memory :)

    I make a big pot of soup at least once a week in our home! Such great comfort food and perfect for our progressive dinner party today! I love that you use a package of onion soup mix! I’ve never done that–should try it soon!
