I am pleased with the outcome and this is how I made it.
3 meaty soup bones
1 1/2 pound stewing meat
1 large onion diced
6 cloves of garlic mashed
1 fresh hot pepper of your choice chopped
4 pounds of fresh roma tomatoes skins removed
1/2 head fresh cabbage chopped
3 stalks of celery diced
4 carrots diced
3 turnips peeled and chopped
3 parsnips peeled and diced
4 medium white potatoes peeled and diced
6 C. water
6 C. beef broth
3 t. salt
1 t. pepper
additional veggies as desired
Roast the seasoned meat at 350 degrees in a covered dutch oven for 2 hours. Remove from the oven and add enough water to barely cover. Replace the lid and simmer on lowest heat on top of the stove.
Increase oven to 425 degrees F.
|Tomatoes and soft vegetables|
Remove the first tray of roasted vegetables and roast the second pan for 50 minutes. Remove the simmering meat from the dutch oven and strain the broth into a very large heavy bottomed kettle. Set the meat aside to cool. Place the roasted veggies from the first pan in the stock and add additional stock if needed to cover. Set to simmer.
Remove the second tray of roasted veggies from the oven and add them to the soup kettle. Pull apart the cooled beef from the bones and add also. Correct seasonings and add any additional canned or left over vegetables you like. Add additional broth and serve or continue to simmer til serving time.
Note: I added 2 C. green beans, 2 C. peas, and 2 C. corn to my soup and ended with enough to give my son's family half of the recipe.
