My mom and I decided to invent a soup on Valentines Day. We had been thinking of making the soup with some leftover baked potatoes, but they had gone bad. But baked potato soup sounded really good. So we thought about what went with a baked potato. Baked potatoes and steak are always a favorite, so we thought, why not make a soup out of that.
(We used fried up hamburger patties (seasoned with salt and pepper) cut into bite-size chunks - we also thought it would be good with a grilled steak (T-Bone or New York Steak))
