The Manliest Soup Ever

Posted by Coondog on 18 October 2014


I don't mind admitting, that I do enjoy a good soup every now and then. But sometimes there's talk of brocolli or cauliflower soup in our household, and it puts a cold shiver up my spine. I mean, they just don't sound like a good, hearty soup. They sound like something you'd have at a weightwatchers meeting, or a colon-cleansing clinic...

Anyway, for those looking for something a little more robust - something you'd be proud to feed to Chuck Norris or Colin Meads, here's a little something I discovered a few months ago - and it deserves to be shared. Eat this, and I almost guarantee your beard will grow thicker as your testosterone levels rocket to new levels!

 soup doesn't get more manly than this! Pair with your favourite brew, while watching your favourite sport. Oh yeah...

1/3 Cup Butter
1/3 Cup Flour
1 ½ Cups Carrots, finely diced
1 ½ Cups Onion, finely diced
1 ½ Cups Celery, finely diced
2 Cloves Garlic, minced
Sea Salt
Fresh Cracked Pepper
2 Cups Beer
3 Cups Chicken Broth
4 Cups Whole Milk
6 Cups Cheddar Cheese, grated
1 Tablespoon Dijon Mustard
1 Teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce
Chives (garnish)
Crumbled Bacon (garnish)

Melt butter in a camp oven over medium heat. Add flour and whisk constantly for 4 – 5 minutes to create a light roux, about the colour of a dull 10c piece. Next, add carrots, onion, and celery; sauté until tender, about 7 – 9 minutes. Add garlic, a few dashes of Tabasco, and season with sea salt and fresh cracked pepper. Slowly add the beer and chicken broth, stir and bring mixture to a slow boil. Add milk, and return to a slow simmer, stirring often. Reduce heat to low; fold in the cheese, mustard, and Worcestershire. Stir until all of the cheese is completely melted – soup should be rich and creamy. Serve.
