Reinvented Leftovers: Bean Soup --> Beef, Bacon and Bean Stoup
Start this dish right after lunch time, just like you would a slow-cooker dish, and while it may take a long time to cook, it is incredibly simple and easy. It is most definitely not vegan or vegetarian, but it is high in protein, delicious, and the perfect comfort food when you need it.
You Will Need:
Beef stew meat
Uncooked bacon, cut into tiny slices
1 onion, diced
1 can stewed tomatoes, juice and all
3 cups leftover bean puree soup
In the bottom of your large pot, cook bacon and onions. Leave the grease or you lose the flavor. Add sausage, and cook until browned. Now add your beef stew meat, and cook until it is almost completely cooked through. Next add your stewed tomatoes. Bring to a boil. Add your leftover bean puree soup. Bring to a low boil and simmer, stirring occasionally. Then, cover, place in oven on warm, and let cook for about 4 hours. Pull out and enjoy while still warm.
