I get this from my butcher, Jack, Hi Jack, Got some good meat for me today, Jack, Love ya Jack. Jack and I are BFFLs. He gives me his good, fresh meat whenever I want it. Don't be jealous, he has plenty to go around. Plenty. Yeppers.
Brown this gorgeous meat mix for couple of minutes, and season with allspice, coriander, smoked paprika, salt, and pepper.Have I ever told you that I love Smoked Paprika? Look here for a beauty of a recipe. Then you are going to add your bay leaf, onions, garlic, and carrots. Yes, that's what you're going to do. Cook these veggies 2 to 3 minutes to soften them a bit,
Add your tomatoes and tomato sauce
Then add your chicken stock,EEEWWWW!!! How queer, you are saying.. She uses Rachael Ray chicken stock when cooking a Rachael Ray dish. Honestly, people, it just happened to be on sale. I am not that odd, really. When I cook her food, I do not use her terms. I don't say ,"Pass me The EVOO.", I don't refer to everyone in the general population as "Kids." Honest, I don't. I don't pretend I am cooking to an audience either. I don't. Really, I don't. I don't even try to carry 20+ items in my arms at once. I don't even have a pasted on smile on my face the entire time I'm cooking the meal, honest. I don't! And every meal I make is NOT from my Mom. Truly.
OK, get on with it. Cover your pot, raise the heat to high, and bring it to a simmer. Simmer for 10 minutes (SHHHHH, I simmered mine 20+ minutes, don't tell Rach though.) Yummy in my tummy, just look how it's coming along...
And so enjoy. Have your significant other take some Bean-O.
This stoup-- soup-- is better the second and third day. (Please remember to space it out while eating otherwise you'll never get any nooky.) Freezes well too!!
One final thing I want to share with you all, like you care.. My Dog Clooney, not named after George, loves the snow..
Look at all the balls of snow on him.. Poor Clooney!
How in the world do you get these snowballs off him.. We used a hair dryer.. do you know a better way?? I'd love to know.
Forgot to tell you one more thing, God will I ever let you go?? While your FFH or your husband or whoever is busy doing his "tooting", your children will be singing the , "Beans Beans Good for your heart", song.. So... between the tooting and the singing.. You'll have a gosh-darned symphony going on in your house. But the soup is very good.
BTW .. would someone tell my FFH that it is NOT OK to smell his own "toots", his head may get stuck like this poor fellow..
Laugh, Laugh, life is too short not too, right Cheryl??
