It’s the most flavorful, hearty soup I have ever tasted.

I remember visiting my grandmother and being so happy every time she made it. I use to eat this soup at my grandmother’s house, but my mom used to make it.  Now I’m hoping to recreate the same emotions and memories with my own family. I get a request from my older kids, who are not living at home anymore, to make this Beef Soup when they come and visit. white and brown bowls of Spanish Style Beef Soup

 I use my pressure cooker, and in less than 30 minutes, the meat is tender and ready for me to make this beef soup. This is a great kitchen tool. I got this three years ago as a christmas present, and I love it.

 Ingredients you’ll need to make this beef soup:

Ingredients-for-Spanish-Beef-Soup

  • Beef chuck stew meat (boneless)
  • Beef short ribs
  • Potatoes
  • Carrots
  • Celery
  • Butternut squash
  • Vegetable bouillon
  • Noodles
  • Cilantro
  • Garlic
  • Salt
  • Black pepper 

*or you can use my Sofrito and skip the garlic, and black pepper the way I did in my youtube video.

How to make Spanish Style Beef Soup:

Season the meat with 4-5 minced garlic, 1 teaspoon of salt, and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper. For an authentic Spanish flavor, I recommend using 2 tablespoons of my Sofrito. I tenderize it using a pressure cooker, add ⅓ cup water, set to meat/stew, and high pressure—Cook for 20 minutes. After the meat is tenderized, release the pressure and transfer the meat to a large pot.

Cover and cook for about 20 minutes on medium-high temperature.

 Let it cook for 15 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Using a fork, mashed a few pieces of butternut squash and potatoes to make the broth creamier and ticker. It also provides that beautiful yellow color to the soup.

This beef soup is just a whole meal in itself, but in my house, a cup of fluffy white rice is part of the combo, and let’s not forget a piece of avocado Yummy :). I’m getting hungry just writing this.  You can also add lime or some hot sauce for a kick.

    Do you brown/seared the meat if cooking on a regular pot? Meaning do you use a bit of sugar to brown the meat? Thank you!

      Hi Kendriz, first, thank you for visiting A Simple Tweak. Yes, I do sear the meat when cooking on a regular pot. I usually don’t use the sugar; I just use one of those good Calderos that hold the heat really well. I know my mom uses sugar, and it does work really nice to give some color to the meat. I hope this answer your question 🙂 Please let me know how it turns out for you, and don’t hesitate to communicate with me if you have other questions or concerns. Thanks!
