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.

Owner at Yellow Bliss Road
Hi! I'm Kristin and I'm the creative mind behind Yellow Bliss Road, where you'll find tons of recipes, free printables, and a little decor and DIY thrown in for good measure. Life can be complicated, so I am all about simplifying wherever I can - from food to decor to DIY - because I believe that it doesn't have to be elaborate or extravagant to be amazing. I am a single adoptive mom with a daughter in Preschool and a son in Kindergarten. My kids are a handful, I'm exhausted and most days my house is a mess - and I'm okay with that!

    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 :)

  2. Katie says

    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!
