the amount of soup you want to make, take stew size beef chunks from
the store and cut them in half. Optional: Use lean ground beef
(80%+) in place of beef chunks; avoid fatty ground beef. You want a
good, strong beef flavored broth or the corn soup will be sweet
flavored from the corn.
Boil water for the amount of soup you want to prepare.
When water is at the boiling point, drop in the determined quantity
of half-sized beef chunks of meat. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Boil the meat until the broth has a brownish color to it. (Meat may
be tender when the broth is light but for the real meat and corn
flavor, it should be cooked until the broth is brownish.)
While the meat is boiling, add the raw onions and raw potatoes if
After the broth has reached the brownish color, add the quantity of
dried corn you wish to cook. Cook for 30-45 minutes until soft and
tender. The dried corn will absorb the beef flavor as it cooks. For
more of a taste of eating dried corn, cook the corn about 30
minutes; corn will have more firmness to it.
If your potatoes are already boiled, add them in the last 10-15
minutes of cooking the corn.
Serve Corn Soup soupy as a meal or drain the soup and serve corn and
beef as a side dish.
