I remember having something called Mock Turtle Soup as a kid. I recall that I really liked it - so off to google I went:
Mock Turtle Soup Recipe
1/2 cup oil
1/2 pound beef (inexpensive cut), chopped
1/2 pound pork (Boston butt or roast), chopped
1/2 pound chicken, chopped
3/4 cup flour
1 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup finely chopped green onions
1/2 cup finely chopped fresh parsley
2 Tbsp finely chopped celery
10 cups meat stock or water
1/2 cup tomato sauce
Salt to taste
Louisiana hot sauce to taste
2 hard-boiled eggs, chopped fine
Lemon slices (optional)
Heat the oil in a large, heavy pot over medium heat and brown all the meat. Remove the meat from the pot and set aside.
In the same pot, stir in the flour to make a dark roux, stirring while cooking until the roux is dark brown. To the dark roux, add the onions, green onions, parsley and celery, stirring after each addition, and cook until the onions are clear. Add 1 cup of the stock and stir to form a thick paste, then stir in the tomato sauce. Stir in the remaining stock, then add the meats, salt and hot sauce. Reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer another hour.
Serve with a teaspoon of sherry and a slice of lemon.
Yield: 10 to 12 servings Credits

I just might have to make this. It does sound good.
