This recipe is made how I know it as a kid. There are many variations and this is the Melnyk version! This is my ultimate comfort food. It has lots of goodness (aka calories) but none of that counts as it is made with love!

1Cut stewing beef into small pieces so they will cook quickly. Add vegetable stock and stewing beef to a large pot and bring to a boil. Continue to simmer until the meat becomes tender 30-45 minutes.
2Meanwhile, prepare your vegetables. Combine the chicken stock and the vegetables to the simmering meat and bring back up to a boil. Continue to boil until all of the vegetables are tender. The broth will be a very deep red.
3Add the cream and stir until soup turns pink and continue to cook until heated through. Do not boil as the cream may separate.
