This is a very simple soup that is actually super easy to cook. No special technic is required. You cut the ingredients and cook them in a pot until soft, then season with Salt and Pepper. Today I used Beef that was already cut for stir-fry, so I didn’t need to cut it. This recipe is for 4 servings as main meal. This is a very filling and comforting soup.
