1/2 cup chopped onion
1 cup sliced celery
1 cup chopped cabbage
1 can Italian Stlye Tomatoes
1 tbs. Worcestershire sauce
1 beef bouillon cube
Cover the soup bone with water in a heavy 3 quart pan. Add salt, pepper and bay leaves. Let come to bubbly stage while preparing the vegetables. Turn heat low and add celery, onions, carrots and cabbage. Simmer at least 2 and 1/2 hours, or until the meat on the bone is tender. Remove the bone and bay leaves and cut the meat into bite size pieces. Put the meat back into the soup and add the tomatoes, Worcestershire sauce and bouillon cube. Simmer another 30 minutes.
What vegetables or spices do you put in your soup? I am always looking for a TNT vegetable soup recipe.
I see there is a thread for soups back in 2004 but I was wondering if any of our members had some new ideas. Thanks
I go one step further by browning a meaty flat shank bone first to get that brown roasted flavor, then I follow with the rest of the recipe.
To go completely from scratch, I get some raw beef bones, roast them in the oven until nicely browned, add rough-cut veggies like onions, carrots and celery - skin on, put them in my big 17-qt. stock pot, add enough cold water
to just cover, add tomato wedges, a boquet garnie, bring to a rolling boil, reduce heat, cover and let it simmer for 8 hours or overnight.
I then drain the stock, wait for it to cool slightly, skim of the fat and I've got
some wonderful beef soup stock!! I then cut up an onion, some celery, add them to the stock, let them cook and add some browned diced cube steak.
Then the frozen veggies go in and the whole thing simmers for a while. Then the potatoes. Adjust seasonings to taste. And you've got the best hoemade soup that you ever had!!!
