Pepper Steak Soup

By Ms. Lizz

  • 12 oz well-trimmed lean boneless beef top round

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper

  • 4 cups fat-free beef broth

  • 1/2 cup fat-free beef broth

  • 1/2 cup tomato sauce

  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme

  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

  • 1 medium sweet white onion, halved and thinly sliced

  • 2 medium green bell peppers, cut into strips

  • 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped

  • 2 to 3 tablespoons water

  • 1 1/2 cups halved cherry tomatoes

  1. Thinly slice beef on the diagonal into 1/4-inch slices. Cut large pieces in half. Sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon of the salt and the black pepper. Set aside.

  2. In large saucepan, stir together beef broth, tomato sauce and thyme. Cover and heat to boiling. Reduce heat; simmer 10 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, in large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add half the beef slices and cook, turning once, 2 minutes or until browned. Transfer cooked beef to a clean bowl. Cook remaining beef; add to bowl.

  4. Add onion, bell peppers, garlic and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt to skillet. Toss to mix well and add 2 tablespoons of the water. Reduce heat to medium; cook and stir 10 minutes or until vegetables are tender. (If pan gets dry, add remaining 1 tablespoon water.) Add tomatoes and cook, stirring often, 5 minutes or until softened.

  5. Add beef, beef juices and pepper mixture to the broth mixture. Warm through but do not boil.
