Fall is here and it’s SOUP time!!! Nothing better than cooler days and night and warm comforting soup!
Love this soup! Love creamy mushroomy beefy flavors period!
This is easy… no crazy ingredients unless you call Kale a crazy ingredient! Some of you might have grown Kale in your gardens and have an abundance of it! I love Kale! It’s one of my favorite greens! It’s a good hearty green that is awesome in soups but doesn’t have a sour taste or weird bite to it… I hope you will give it a try!
Start by meeting a stick of unsalted butter in a soup pan.
Chop up the mushrooms, garlic, & onion. I used Cremini Mushrooms, they seemed to be heartier for this soup but you can use whatever mushrooms you like.
Cook the veggies in the melted butter.
Cook till the onions are transparent…
Add in the browned ground beef (I had some in the freezer that I took out and thrawed… be sure to run the beef over hot water to remove some of the fat).
Once the vegetables are cooked through add the beef broth, heavy whipping cream and seasonings.
Chop up about 4 to 6 cups of kale. I did a rough chop. Put in the broth.
Allow this to simmer until the kale has reduced in size. Serve it up and enjoy!!
This is an S soup for all my Trim Healthy Mama buddies!!

Sarah, Sarah, Sarah! I’m glad that I’ve made enough of your recipes to trust you! We’ve never eaten Kale before tonight!!!! This recipes is FANTASTIC! It will be a regular on our winter menu! Thanks again for a wonder meal. Yum!

Sarah, I loved this to death! And my son liked it, too, and you will never catch him eating mushrooms! I made some for friends and have them sold on it, too. I forgot to check the ingredients on the beef broth box (Swanson’s) so, I don’t know if it had carbs or where they may have come from. My sugar readings went up after eating this. It may have been the onion alone. Not sure, but I absolutely love the flavor! Thank you!
Hmm… yeah it could be the onion. Those are starchy a bit! Sooooo happy you like it!!! 😀
You might also want to check the label on the broth you’re using. I was using Trader Joes beef broth in the carton, and didn’t read until after I poured it in the pan that it contains honey, molasses, and cane sugar!
Oh eeek… thanks for telling me that! But a bummer!! 🙁
This is a great soup! I made a pot today and packaged it up for my lunches all week. Thanks for another great recipe!
WONDERFUL!! I LOVE this one too!! 🙂
Diane in Wisconsin says
Oh so good!!
Why thank you!!!
I can’t eat beef, but this seems like it would be great with ground chicken or turkey. Have you made it with either of those?
You can totally make it with chicken or ground turkey!!! 🙂
Just made this soup last night, and the whole family loved it! Heading out to the store today for more mushrooms so we can make another batch tonight! This soup is delicious!!
Thank you so much for telling me!! I love this soup too!! 🙂

This is a fantastic recipe, all of my favorite things in one bowl 😉 Great for the long winters here in Wisconsin!
Is the beef supposed to be cooked before going in the pot? The instructions aren’t clear.
Yes the meat should be cooked.
My Om made this for me. It’s so tasty. Love the kale in it.
We love this soup! I use kale instead of spinach. Most times I use ground chicken and turkey instead of beef.

Great soup base! I had to modify with what I had on hand. No fresh mushrooms, so I subbed 8-4oz cans sliced. No beef broth, used chx. I prefer thyme with my beef mushroom flavor, subbed this for oregano.
THAT said, it was a wonderful tasting soup, but it was greasy 🙁 I think 1/2C butter was way too much. I will probably stick to a standard 2TBS next time. You can see the layer of butter on top of each bowl, and the ladle was coated 🙁 It’s ok, live and learn! Not knocking anyone who likes it this way, just wanted to offer an alternative!
Yes, you could probably cut back the butter and be just fine!
