Mrs Beeton Recipes Index Page

Estimated Preparation Time: 10 minutes

Estimated Cooking Time: 3 hours 45 minutes

Servings: 4 bowls of soup

Non-standard Cooking Utensils: A large pan


Ingredients:

900 g (2 lbs) shin of beef or similar cut - chopped into cubes

1.2 litres (2.2 pints) of water

280 ml ( pint) low strength beer

1 onion - peeled and chopped

1 carrot - peeled and chopped

turnip - peeled and chopped

4 sticks celery - chopped

55 g (2 oz) butter (more if thicker soup is wanted)

55 g (2 oz) plain flour (more if thicker soup is wanted)

Salt and pepper to taste

Cooking Method

1. Simmer the meat, beer and water in a pan for 10 minutes

2. Turn down the heat and skim off any fat from the surface of the soup

3. Add the vegetables and season with salt and pepper. Simmer for 3 hours until the meat is tender

4. Just before the soup is cooked, melt the butter in a pan over a low to medium heat. Slowly add the flour stirring all the time. This mixture is called "roux" and will thicken the soup. You can use more or less roux depending on how thick you prefer the soup.

5. Slowly add roughly one pint of the soup into the roux, stirring all the time until the mixture is smooth.

6. Add the roux mixture back to the main soup stirring all the time.

7. Simmer for 5 minutes then serve in warm soup bowls accompanied by bread or a side plate of vegetables.
