Meat Soup

This hearty flavourful soup was originally devised to deal with pork bones left over from making sausage. Expert chefs do not use bones with exposed marrow, because the flavor will be to sharp. Carrots, leeks and other vegetables add homemade aroma to this delicious soup.

Recipe Ingredients:

  • 1 kg meat of your choice
  • 5 bones with marrow
  • 1/2 cup carrots
  • 1/2 cup leeks
  • 1/2 cup parsley
  • 1/2 cup onions
  • 1/2 cup potatoes -
  • Zucchini - 1/4 cup
  • Turnip - 1
  • Cabbage - 1/4 cup
  • Salt to taste


Place the washed meat and bones into a deep pot. Add salt and bring to boil. Once the water gets boiled add vegetables and continue boiling on low heat cook until the vegetables are cooked properly.

Keep aside for 10-15 min. When you cool the soup the extra fat will come on the top as a layer. You may choose to remove it with a spoon.

Filter the stock, pour into bowls and serve with meat and vegetables.

As with all recipes which involve cooking and baking a sensible approach must be taken especially when dealing with warm or hot (temperature) ingredients. If you are unable to take due care, please do not attempt to make any of these recipes. All recipes are tried at your own risk.
