Yesterday I was craving some comfort food. Plus I had a sick person in the house, so I thought about this soup I ate in Austria. We were in the Wachau, at the Danube, and stopped at a Restaurant for lunch. We had a large breakfast at our B&B, and I just wanted something small. It was the creamiest soup I have ever tasted, plus it was delicious. I tinkered around and re-created it.
I added hamburger meat, but it is optional
- 1 lb hamburger meat
- 5 gloves of garlic sliced
- 3 leeks
- 3 cups beef broth
- 3 cups water
- beef or chicken cube
- 1 cup whipping cream
- a dash of nutmeg, salt and pepper to taste
- if you have some white wine, add 3 tbsp
By the way, I love my Dutch Oven for stews and soups. It keeps an even temperature
Fry the hamburger meat, drain the fat. Add the sliced leeks and garlic to the pan. Cook by stirring occasional.
I add the water and water/beef broth and cook it on low to medium for about 30 minutes. If you like it thicker, add a mix of cornstarch and flour (mix with a little cold water) then add it to the simmering pot, set for 2 minutes on high until it is thickening.
At the the end take the soup of heating element. Whisk the whip cream for 2 minutes so it is foamy. Add all the ingredient, including the the salt, pepper, nutmeg and wine
