Recipe: WINTER VEGETABLE BEEF SOUP

Title: WINTER VEGETABLE BEEF SOUP
Categories: Soups, Usenet
Yield: 20 cups

1 lb Beef soup bones 2 sm Carrots
-(as meaty as possible; 1/2 lb Green peas, unshelled
-meaty neck or cross-cut 1 Ear corn, fresh
-shank bones are good) 3 Bay leaves
12 C Water 5 T Basil, dried (or
1 lg Onion, quartered -1/2 cup fresh, chopped)
-(don't use instant) 2 T Oregano, dried
2 lb Cooking tomatoes -(or 2-4 T fresh, chopped)
-(peeled), whole 1 T Thyme, dried (or 2 T
-(2 large cans) -fresh, chopped)
1/4 lb Green beans, fresh Salt and pepper

In a large, heavy pot, bring about 12 C of water to boil. Add beef bones,
cover and bring back to full boil. Reduce heat to low simmer. Skim
occasionally during first 30 minutes to remove scum. Cook for 3-4 hours
until meat is tender and nearly falls off of bones.

Remove bones from broth. Remove all meat and marrow from bones and return
to the pot. Add tomatoes (including juice), onion and herbs. Simmer for 20
minutes. Remove tomatoes, break up into quarters or smaller, and return to
the pot. Continue to simmer.

Clean green beans and break into pieces. Clean carrots and slice into thin
slices. Slice kernels from ear of corn. Shell peas. Add vegetables to
pot. Simmer for 30 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste and serve.

NOTES:

* A thick and hearty vegetable beef soup, this soup is almost thick enough
to be called a stew. It is great on a cold day or after skiing.

* I prefer beef neck or shank bones over what markets call "soup bones"
which are nearly devoid of meat. Individual-serving size cans of green
beans, corn and green peas may be substituted if fresh vegetables are not
available. These are the basic vegetables I use, but I have also added
mustard greens, chinese cabbage, zucchini and yellow squash (add just 5
minutes before serving or they become mush) turnips and any other
fall/winter vegetables that look good in the market. Serve with cornbread,
sourdough or another strong flavored bread. This soup improves with age.

: Difficulty: easy to moderate.
: Time: Several hours of intermittent attention.
: Precision: approximate measurement OK.
