“I make this soup with my beef stock Kittencal's Rich Homemade Beef Stock (Crock-Pot or Stove Top), but the canned beef broth will work great for this, this is a hearty soup, perfect for a cold winters night. You can omit the chicken broth and make the soup using 8 cups beef broth with the consomme, but the beef flavor will be quite strong. Sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese in the bowls and serve with crusty bread. You can really use any cut of beef for this soup”
