How To Make Beef And Beer Soup
If you love beer you'll be happy to know it's not just for drinking. Beer can also be added as a flavor enhancing ingredient to many delicious recipes. One of my favorite uses for beer (besides drinking it of course) is to make great tasting soups. Here's a delicious recipe for a mouth watering Beef And Beer Soup:
- 1 lb round steak, cut into 1/2 inch cubes

- 2 carrots, sliced
