With this polar vortex affecting much of the country, it’s a great time to make soup! For this one, I called my grandma to find out how she puts it together. It is really a flexible recipe… check it out!
-Stew Bone (I didn’t have one so I used 3 lbs of stew meat)
-Salt and Pepper, to season
This is a simple, one pot soup. I put beef stock in my pot and added the stew meat. If you’re using a stew bone, let it boil before adding everything else. Once you’ve chopped your veggies to the desired size, add them to the pot. I used a big stock pot for this so I could put as many vegetables as possible. At this point add salt and pepper. I go overboard at this point because as the meat and veggies cook, they need to absorb seasonings to help flavor them. It helps each be flavorful. I let mine cook for hours to help the stew meat be tender and the flavors blend perfectly. Near the end of cooking, add the vermicelli.
It’s the perfect dish for a cold day!
Happy Soup eating,
