Beef & Broccoli Soup

Death by assignment, send help! Why is the end always the hardest! Its been a long, grey, wet day which has not helped my mood but this bowl of goodness sure has. I love steak; I'm not talking T bone nor am I talking sirloin; I am talking Rump! Yes, I am a rump steak kind of girl and tonight I've treated myself to some hearty steak and broccoli soup for dinner.

3 reasons why I love broccoli: It's a very good source of dietary fiber (aids digestion and prevents constipation whih is ideal for IBS),  Broccoli is also a good source of protein, calcium, zinc, vitamin B1, omega-3 fatty acids and magnesium. Of all the vegetables from the Brassica family, broccoli is the cutest., I mean, it looks like a mini tree; a very nutritious one that. This is an easy way to feed the whole family and keep warm on a cold, rainy spring day.
