Instructions Checklist
  • Heat a large soup pot over medium-high heat and add bacon. Cook until crisp, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate. Set aside to cool.

  • Add beef to the soup pot and flatten with a spatula. Cook until bottom is browned, about 5 minutes. Flip and cook other side, about 5 minutes more. Add broth, Cheddar cheese, cream cheese, pickles, tomato paste, steak sauce, mustard, onion powder, chili powder, and black pepper. Mix well to combine, breaking meat into smaller pieces.

  • Reduce heat to low; cook and stir until cream cheese is melted, about 3 minutes. Cover and cook soup for 25 minutes more.

  • Ladle soup into individual bowls. Divide lettuce between bowls and fold into soup. Crumble 1 slice of cooked bacon into each bowl and garnish with tomatoes and red onion.

Cook's Note:

Be sure to choose a low-carb, keto-friendly steak sauce.

This was just ok. It tasted kind of like a cheeseburger but the lettuce and veggies just did not stay crisp at all despite being added right at serving time. I also think the soup was just way too rich and it really needed more than just the meat and the minimal veggies. My 6 year old didn’t like it at all and the rest of my family thought it was ok. I wouldn’t make it again. Read More

I added garlic and left off the bacon and lettuce. It was not a big hit with my kids unfortunately. I liked it but most likely will not make it again since I would be the only one who ate it. Read More

My husband and daughter and I loved this and we even had seconds. The only thing I would do different is maybe add two pounds of ground beef instead of one. Otherwise it s delicious! Read More
