"A most delicious hearty main meal soup, all that's needed with this soup is a loaf of crusty bread. To save some time the coated beef cubes can be browned a day or two ahead. Stewing beef meat can be used in place of the blade, I don't care for stewing beef meat I never use it in recipes I find it very tough and stringy but go ahead an use it if you want."
