Steak Tomato and Smoked Paprika Soup

Here’s another tasty recipe for leftover grilled steak. Spouse is a great fan of a good soup so sometimes I even grill an extra steak to make a small pot of this delicious soup for lunch the next day.

Always cook the steak to rare for this soup, even if you don’t prefer rare steak. The steak gets added in thin slices just before serving so that the piping hot broth continues the cooking process while still keeping the beef quite tender.

I do like to use prime cuts of steak for this recipe like strip loin or prime rib because they are the most tender. You can however make many cheaper cuts of steak work in this recipe.

The secret is to sear it quickly and well on the outside to build up flavour. Cut as thin as you can so that the meat retains its tender bite and great flavour when added to the broth.

I have been experimenting with dry aged beef at home and recently made this recipe using some 28 day dry aged steak. The intensity of the beef flavour with the bright fresh summer tomatoes was just wonderful.

I must remember to make this for my Mom next time. She, like Spouse, is a real soup queen, who would surely enjoy this recipe.
