'Tis the season... for soup!

I had some leftover short ribs from dinner last night and decided to make a beef barley soup from them. Man did it come out well. I had a bowl of it for breakfast! Maybe it's because the weather has turned cool and the leaves are falling but soup really hits the spot today. Now I'm thinking about chili, and bean soup and maybe even a squash soup since it is the harvest season. What sounds good to you this time of year?

I picked up some beef shanks this weekend to make beef barley soup. I think I'm making it today.

I am sitting on about 9lbs of ox tails, going to have some fun with those this week. Also, have 4 chicken carcasses, so chicken and dumplings will be in the mix, so long as it stays cool(er).

I, too, get the "bug" to make soups, stews and chili when the weather turns cooler. I jumped the gun a week or so ago when we had a bit of a cold snap. I made a huge pot of chili. It was good but, then, our weather went back into the upper 80s and I had to go back to hot weather food mode.

I can't wait for the weather to be more consistently fall-like. Our soup kettle will be busy. I'm especially looking forward to a big pot of oxtail soup. Yum!!!!!

tomorrow i will be making crock-pot french onion soup. it will be for guests on thursday night. my recipe calls for a prolonged cooking time to caramelize the onion. then will add beef broth, wine, etc the next day. i don't have bowls that will stand the oven for melting the cheese. plan to just put the toasted rounds of bread on pan in the oven to melt the cheese.

Yeah, my a** is killin me!

I am going to coat in flour, and brown them off, hold on the side. In with all the fond, I am going in with bay leaves, fresh thyme, crushed red pepper, mexican oregano, cinnamon stick, onion, garlic, carrot, red peppers, and sauteing all until just beginning to caramelize. Deglaze with some dark rum, and beef stock. In with the ox tails. Bring up to a simmer and let em rip, low and slow. In the last final 10min or so of cooking, I will add fresh cut jalapeno, and that's it. For service, a decent portion of ox tail in bottom of the bowl, ladle the broth over, garnish with fresh cilantro and lime wedge.

I have always done 'em kinda a la Island Style, I just think it is wonderful year round. Being a Bermuda Boy, I also drizzle with some sherry peppers for added kick.
