Steak and bacon soup!

We had a roast a few days ago. It was huge (on sale at the grocery store), and to be quite honest I was growing tired of eating it. So here on night number 3 we finally finished this roast. This soup can either be done with a lean steak or roast. We used our tenderloin roast. You can use leftover meat or new fresh meat. Its a super easy, quick and delicious paleo meal.

Paleo Steak and Bacon Soup

olive oil
2-3 lbs of steak, cut into bite sized cubes (take off fat)
2 onions (I used sweet onions)
5 strips bacon, cut into bits
1/2 cup red wine
1 quart beef broth (look for good stuff or make your own)
1 pinch dried rosemary
2 pinch dried thyme
2 pinch dried marjoram
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 lbs spinach, chopped (I used frozen)
sea salt, to taste
black pepper to taste

Heat a large soup pot over medium to medium high heat. Swirl with olive oil. Add steak, onion and bacon. Cook until bacon and steak is cooked. Pour off some grease if there is too much. Add red wine. Scrape all of the yummy bits off of the sides of the pot. Add beef broth and seasonings. Add frozen spinach and stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Simmer for 15-30 minutes. Serve and enjoy!


  1. I just want to tell you how amazing this recipe is. I've made it once with leftover pot roast, steak and bacon and my husband and I loved it. I can't wait to make it again!

  2. So glad you enjoyed this soup! :) The men in my house enjoyed it quite a bit too. My 3 year old called it Pirate Soup, and pirates are one of his favorite things, so I took it as a compliment.
