Ingredients

  • 5 slices bacon
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 2 tsp steak seasoning or whatever spices you prefer
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/2 cup onion diced
  • 1/2 cup green pepper diced
  • 1 cup cauliflower chopped
  • 1/2 cup carrot diced
  • 1 cup celery diced
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 tsp xantan gum
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Instructions

  • In a large pot or dutch oven, fry bacon. Drain off extra grease and set bacon aside on a paper towel. 
    Place ground beef, garlic, seasoning, onion and green pepper in pot and cook until beef is no longer pink. Again drain off excess fat and grease.
    Add in cauliflower, carrots, celery and chicken broth. Bring pot to a boil, reduce to simmer and cover. Simmer until vegetables are tender.
    In a small sauce pan, add heavy cream and whisk in xanthan gum. Bring to a low boil and immediately reduce heat. When the mixture has thickened slightly, add it to the pot of soup and stir. 
    Slowly add in shredded cheese 1/4 cup at a time and whisk to ensure it melts evenly. Adding the entire cup at once may cause the cheese to melt in clumps. 
    Let soup simmer 10 more minutes until desired thickness. 

Notes

***Can be adapted for Slow Cooker***
Cook bacon and ground beef as normal. Add cauliflower, celery, carrots, beef, bacon and broth to slow cooker. Cook on low for 8 hours.
30 minutes prior to serving: In a small sauce pan, add heavy cream and whisk in xanthan gum. Bring to a low boil and immediately reduce heat. When the mixture has thickened slightly, add it to the pot of soup and stir. Add in shredded cheese 1/4 cup at a time and mix well so it melts evenly.
Place lid back on slow cooker and let cook for another 15-20 minutes.
