Rich Meat Soup

Winter is a couple of months off here in the tropical regions of Africa and I have started thinking of Soups. My wife loves soups and I sometimes put one together from whatever is in the fridge and freezer. A general can make soup out of just about anything. Really. Bones, fish, root vegetables, there are really few rules. There is one little secret that I have worked out over the years. A rich tasty soup or a gravy or sauce for that matter, is often rich in oils and fats. Yup, if it going to be really tasty, it might also be a bit fatty. Not always though. You can skim a lot of the animal fats off and use vegetable oils or olive oil to act as flavour carrier.
here is a basic rich vegetable and meat soup. Real comfort food!
Ingrdients: whatever you have but this works:

 2 large onions chopped,
2 large carrots grated.
2 cups of cabbage finely sliced.
Half cup of olive oil or light vegetable oil.
About half a kilo of beef shin or chicken bones or whatever other meat or bones you might have. Beef blade is good. So are marrow bones. If you like pork, then pork trotters without the hoofy bits are fantastic and rich.
It should end up thick and semi transparent. Something like this:


  1. Archi, going to try some of your recipe's. They all look great and I'm looking forward to learning some new food styles. May be a little while before I get to them but I'll let you know what I think.
    If you get time you can link to my friends site:

  2. Thank you for some other informative website. The place else could I get that type of
    info written in such an ideal means? I have a project that I am just now
    working on, and I've been at the glance out for such information.
