Difference Between Soup & Stew Consistency

Vegetable Beef Soup Recipe

  • If you’re looking for more of a Soup consistency, your work it mostly done. If you’re looking for more of a thicker, Stew consistency you’ll have just a little more work to do.
  • For a thicker Stew consistency, you’ll need:
    • Medium Sized Bowl
    • 1/4 to 1/2 cup of Corn Starch
    • 1/4 to 2/3 cup of Water
  • Combine Corn Starch and water into the Medium Sized Bowl and Whisk until it becomes a thick liquid. Pour liquid into pot and stir thoroughly. Repeat this step if the stew isn’t thick enough for you.
