How to make wild rice soup

  • Season top round or  stew meat with salt and pepper. In a medium size braising pot on high heat add oil and seasoned stew meat.  Sear the meat for roughly 10 minutes stirring the meat around periodically.  Then add all the vegetables and garlic, cook for another 5 minutes.  
    Add your stock or water and another 1 tsp of salt.  Bring to a boil and then turn down to a simmer, and cover.  Cook for about 1 1/2 hours.
    Meanwhile in another smaller pot cook the wild rice by placing water, salt, and bay leaf. Bring to a boil and then add the wild rice, turn down to a light simmer and cover. Cook low and slow for about 40-45 minutes until the wild rice opens up and is tender all the way through. Strain off the rice and set aside for a minute.
    Thicken the soup slightly by taking your cornstarch slurry and pouring it into the soup. It should thicken the soup to a nice consistency. Now add the wild rice soup, cream, and chopped herbs. Cook for 5 more minutes and finish by seasoning the wild rice soup with more salt and pepper if need be. Serve and enjoy!
