Pale Ale and Beef Soup
From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. Both Holmes and Watson enjoyed beef and beer, and here is a soup recipe they apparently loved after a hard day of walking and working.
1 1/2 pounds lean beef steak, diced
Finely dice the beef steak, or use lean ground beef. Toss the flour into the beef. In a heavy bottomed saucepan or stir-fry pan, melt the butter, toss in the beef and cook and stir to brown on all sides. Add the stock, beer, salt, marjoram and mint. Bring to a boil, reduce to simmer and cook, covered, about 30 minutes. Now add the chopped spinach and the asparagus pieces and simmer about 5 minutes. Add the sugar and perhaps more salt and pepper, as desired. Serve.
