    I made this tonight. Flavors are great, but mine is realllllyyyy salty. I didn't drain the fat after cooking the bacon/beef, is that why? Maybe I just bought a salty brand of bacon? I will make again, but maybe not add salt until the end. I diluted it with extra heavy cream, so it's pretty yummy now! Thanks for the recipe!

      I'm glad you enjoyed the flavors and will make it again. I should have mentioned that I use uncured bacon which tends to be less salty tasting than cured. I will make a note in the recipe and suggest adding salt to taste towards the end. Thanks!

    in your photos there is celery in this soup but celery isn't in the ingredient list. Also there are no instructions on where to add or how much. Do you saute it when you brown your meat or just toss it in? Thanks! looks DELISH!!

      Good eye! Yes, I just use a little but of thinly sliced celery as a garnish sometimes. But it might be yummy to mix a Little in with The browning meat too. If you try it, let me know how it is!

    OMG, this has become a staple in our low carb home. I added some burger-ish fresh topping options, so now when I make it I chop some grape tomatoes, green onions, and pickles. Makes it taste even more like a delicious burger and freshens the heaviness of the meat and cream. Yum!!!

    After cooking the beef in the bacon fat, do you really not drain the meat, its fat, and the bacon fat? Seems like a LOT of fat to me, that would make the soup too rich. If that's how you do it, I'm cool with it...I'm just not sure about eating all that fat. I know fat is okay on low carb diets...it just seems like all you'd taste is the fat, and that it would congeal if you refrigerate leftovers...thanks for clarifying!

      Yes, you can drain the fat, if you like. It is up to you and it won't change the flavor.

      A serving is about a cup and a half, but it depends on how much you let it cook. Recipe makes 5 servings. Hope you enjoy!

    Thank you for this recipe! I would absolutely make this again, it was pretty easy, and other than the saltiness had great flavor. It also has kept me very satisfied for five hours, which is nice. I am going to experiment with not adding any salt at all, low sodium beef broth, etc and just find the right mix for us, but this was a definite keeper recipe. Thanks again, this is definitely going to be in heavy rotation for us!
