Stacey’s Dad’s CornBeefSoup~
1 ½ - 2 sticks of butter in pan
1 ½-2 Onions
3-4 stalks Celery
4-6 Tbs flour
1 Box of Chicken Broth
1 Can Corn Beef
1lb. Bag of Frozen Corn
5lbs Bag of Potatoes
1 Tbsp Oregano
1 Tbsp Thyme
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 ½ - 2 sticks of butter in pan
Sauté onions (1 ½-2) and celery (3-4 stalks) in butter till onion is clear add garlic last (however much you like). Add 4-6 tbs of flour and cook a few minutes.
Add 1 box of chicken Broth in soup pot (last time I used 2 boxes of chicken broth and little water. You don’t have to use that much but it’s more tasty than just water, add water to fill pot about 3/4s full). Bring to boil.
Crumble up canned cornbeef in to pot
Add bag of frozen corn
Chop about 5lbs bag of potatoes (or however much will suite your pot)
I use thyme and oregano in my salt now but you can chop a little thyme and throw in there.
Salt and pepper to taste
Boil till potatoes are tender (you can also put in the crock pot for a few hours high 4 hours I think)
Before serving each bowl gets a little half and half with a douff of butter. If you put the milk and butter in the pot after its done cooking it doesn’t last as long. If you freeze it I would defiantly say not to add the dairy.
I do this soup in a huge pot so if you think about it that’s not much butter.

side, an additional 3 minutes. Remove the meat to a plate. Drain
off all but 2 tablespoons of fat from the pot. Add the onions
and stir periodically until they soften and start to brown, about 8 minutes.
Stir in the onion soup
mix, thyme, bay leaves
and 2 cups water. Add the meat with all its juices back to the pot. Bring the
liquid to a simmer.
