Pepper Steak Soup

Pepper Steak Soup

A low FODMAP and Low Histamine Recipe

This is another soup that I just kinda threw together based on what I had and what sounded like it would work together. The primary flavors that came through were the peppers and the beef, so I decided to call it Pepper Steak Soup. It’s a hearty soup that’s great for a cold evening or a quick lunchtime bite.

If you’re a low FODMAP or low Histamine eater, be sure you evaluate each ingredient carefully. Just because I can tolerate these things doesn’t necessarily mean you can. Things to watch out for include the Worcestershire sauce, the spices and the vegetables.

Pepper Steak Soup

  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 2 lb lean grassfed stew beef
  • 1 medium potato cubed
  • ½ red pepper diced
  • 2 stalks celery diced
  • 8 cups water
  • Worcestershire
  • 3 carrots sliced
  • 1 c each green beans, lima beans, corn (frozen)
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1tsp parsley

Set up and pre-heat slow-cooker on low.

Preheat skillet on medium high heat and add oil. Brown beef, peppers and celery until browned. Add to slow cooker. Preheat 6 cups of water and add to slow cooker. Dice potato and carrot and add to crockpot along with spices and Worcestershire. Cook 4-5 hours, until meat and potatoes are tender. Add frozen veggies and heat through before serving, approximately 30-60 more minutes before serving with yeast-free bread or crackers on the side.

If you are on the low histamine diet, remember to promptly freeze leftovers!

Makes: 6-8 Servings

Prep Time: 5-6 hours

  1. I’m beyond sad that I can’t really eat steak anymore (stoma doesn’t seem to like it). Must admit I’d never tried it as a soup, but I used to love beef stew which was quite similar with the cubed potatoes and carrots and any other veg on hand.
    Mmmmm yum!

    1. I know what you mean. I find that my beef has to either be cooked until falling apart unless they are the most tender cuts. I also find it helps if it’s extremely lean, so I stay away from chuck roasts and the like. I don’t know if this will help with your stoma, but I thought I’d throw it out there. xx
