Cheesy Rueben Soup


Sounds STRANGE, but it truly was delish!  I will share my version of the recipe that I made.  I take recipes as starting places.  The original recipe called for Corned beef only.  I like fresh sliced meat from the deli.  And, yes I am slightly a snob and prefer Boars Head, because they don’t put as much junk in their meat.  I way prefer any freshly sliced deli meat over canned–as the recipe called for.  The book if you are interested in checking it out is Keto Diet Make Ahead Freezer Meals & Snacks.

***This is based on the original recipe which used all Swiss cheese and no provolone and all corned beef.
Ingredients
2 Cloves Garlic, minced
1 Onion medium–think slivery slices
3 tablespoons butter or Ghee–which I used with a touch of butter to finish
2 stalks celery, diced
1/2 lb corned beef chopped
1/2 lb reg roast beef chopped
4 cups beef broth, or 1 32 oz box of beef stock
1 cup sauerkraut (Silver Floss Krisp Kraut)
1 teaspoon caraway seeds, seeds
1 tsp sea salt
3/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 cups Swiss cheese (did swiss blend), grated
1/3 cup provolone cheese, grated or diced
2 cups heavy cream
Directions:
Sauté sliced onions in Ghee until soft, and starting to become translucent.
add celery cook for a few minutes, then add garlic and pat of butter over medium heat until caramelized–start this as you finish up the prep for the beef.
Chop Beef.   I used a mixture of sliced corned beef and sliced beef from the deli–not a fan of canned–too salty.
Transfer to crockpot on high heat. Add Sauerkraut, beef stock, corned beef, and seasonings to crockpot.

Cook, averred on high for 4 hours, or on low for 6 to 8 hours. Add Swiss cheese or other white cheeses and cream and for another hour.

Freezes well.

I will tell you that this is a wonderful meal … so, if you love Ruben sandwiches, but are going sans bread … You will LOVE this!
Chat y’all up laters!
