Great recipe for a delicious beef soup. Ready in 2 hours , medium complexity.
- 500-600 gr of beef meat
- 2 carrots
- 1 parsley
- 1 small celery
- 1-2 onions
- 200-300 gr of cauliflower , small pieces ( or cabbage )
- 200-300 gr of green beans
- 1-2 capsicums ( cut into cubes )
- 2-3 small potatoes ( cut into cubes )
- 1-2 boiled tomatoes , peeled off and cut into cubes
- fresh lovage
- Optional: lemon or vinegar
Boil the meat in cold water with salt. Meanwhile, prepare the vegetables. Peel, wash, finely chop the onions, the celery, the parsley and the carrots in cubes. I like herbs and vegetables cut symmetrically in soup, and everything in the plate I want to fit in the spoon i eat with.
When the pot starts to boil, carefully remove the foam, several times. When the foam is not so abundant , add carrots, onions and celery. Simmer over low heat.
Prepare the remaining vegetables. Here you can make combinations as you like, I used cauliflower, green beans, peppers ( capsicum ) and potatoes.
They match so well in taste the cabbage, peas , beans , kale and even the zucchini. When root vegetables are half cooked ( when they begin to soften ) add cauliflower , peppers and green beans.
Check the cooking stage of the meat and when the fork easily slides in the meat let it cool slightly. Cut the meat into cubes as symmetric as you can ( only to look good ) and add it to the boiling broth. Check how cooked the vegetables are and when the vegetables are almost done add the potatoes too.
After the potatoes are boiling add the peeled tomatoes, cut into cubes. Let it boil for 2-3 times.
Prepare the greens. Wash and finely chop the lovage and sprinkle on top.
