Steak, Bean & Pasta Soup {Recipe}

(Disclosure: I am taking part in the Beano “Be Natural” Virtual Cook-off. I was compensated for posting and received free products but thoughts are my own.)

Looking for the perfect Fall soup? Try this delicious steak and bean pasta soup for a hearty meal.


  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 diced sweet onion
  • 1 tablespoon of chopped garlic
  • 1 whole red sweet pepper, diced
  • 1 pound of mushrooms
  • 16 ounce can of beef stock
  • 1 pound of flank steak
  • 1/2 cup of red wine
  • 1 tablespoon of Italian seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon of parsley
  • 1/2 pound of uncooked pasta
  • 1 can of kidney beans
  • 1 can of pinto beans
  • 1 can of corn
  • 2 tablespoons of tomato paste
  • water (as needed)


  • In a large pot, saute garlic, onion and red pepper in olive oil
  • Grill or broil steak until it’s cooked to medium rare (about 5 minutes)
  • Once steak is cooked, add steak to garlic, onion, pepper mixture
  • Stir in mushrooms, corn and beans
  • Stir in seasonings
  • Add beef stock and red wine and bring to a boil
  • Add uncooked pasta, 3 cups of water (you can add less if you want it thicker or more if you want it soupier), and tomato paste then turn down heat and simmer until pasta is fully cooked
  • Spoon into bowls and serve with bread if you’d like to.

It’s well known that beans make you “toot”. There is even a silly song to go along with that saying that many kids sing but did you know that many other foods cause gas, too? When I was given a list of gas inducing foods I was shocked. Pasta and sweet peppers (two foods I love) were both on that list! The recipe above has beans, pasta and some vegetables that are known to cause gas but if you’ve taken Beano before eating it you don’t have to worry about having gas, bloating or discomfort. Beano contains a natural food enzyme that breaks down the complex carbohydrates found in many foods, making them easier to digest so they don’t cause gas.

The recipe above was created as my entry into the Beano “Be Natural” Virtual Cook-off. This fun cook-off between a group of bloggers has a fun prize. At the end of the cook-off one lucky blogger and a guest will get to attend classes at the Natural Gourmet Institute in New York City.
