Vendor Note: “A special thanks to Dan for allowing us to adapt his recipe for the soup.”
Mississippi Marketplace Note: “Dear Dan, we don’t know who you are, but without you we’d be eating lot more frozen pizza instead of this mouthwatering soup. Thanks from us too Dan. Our taste buds appreciate you.”
Ingredients: Black beans, onion, potatoes, bell peppers, cumin, garlic, sea salt, pepper, paprika, basil, and red pepper flakes.
1 package Black Bean Soup Mix
9 cups water
¾ lb. round steak, cut into small bite-sized pieces (more meat may be used, if desired)
1–2 tablespoons olive oil or vegetable oil
3 beef bouillon cubes
Rinse beans. Soak in container with enough water to cover by 4 inches overnight. Drain beans. Brown round steak in oil. Add beans, spice packet, water, and bouillon cubes to pot. Bring to a boil, cover pan, reduce heat and simmer 1 ½ hours or until beans are tender. Stir frequently to prevent sticking. Add additional water if soup becomes too thick.
Serve with grated parmesan cheese and crusty Italian bread.
Approximately 6–8 servings
