Cream of Onion/Celery w/ Chipped Beef Soup

Wanted a simple cream soup, maybe celery... hmm and onions. But need some meat - hmm... chipped beef. Yeah!

  • 1/2 medium onion, diced
  • 2 stalks celery, diced
  • 1/4 cup butter + 1 Tbs butter
  • 1/5 cup flour
  • 2 to 4 cups milk
  • 10 rounds of dried beef
  • Savory Salt
  • Fresh ground Black Pepper

  • Melt the butter and add the flour to make a roux, over med heat
  • Season with Salt and Pepper - go light on the salt because the beef is salty
  • Cook on low for about 5 minutes
  • Add the mile, about 1/2 a cup at a time till the right consistency (it will thicken a little as you cook it)
  • At the same time, in another pan, melt 1 Tbs butter and add the celery and onion
  • Saute until wilted but not browned
  • Add to the cream soup
  • Soak the beef in warm water for a few minutes and then drain, rip into pieces and add to the soup

This is my standard base for a cream soup and I've made quite a few different soups with it. This one turned out pretty good!
