(affectionately referred to as “Brown Soup”)

  • Put flanken (2 packages with 2 pieces per package-not the thin stuff , the thick boneless flanken-and rinse first) into pot and fill 3/4 full of cold water and season with salt, pepper, garlic powder- a shuckle of each.  Turn heat on medium and cover.   
  • Meanwhile, dice up two carrots, two stalks of celery, and one onion (not the fancy smancy kind just the regular kind), maybe a potato.  Then, throw it all into the pot.
  • Then add 2 packages of Manishevitz soup mix packages (barley vegetable) with enclosed seasonings. Dump the whole damn thing in there and just mish it up every so often.   Let it simmer for about 2 hours or so, not boil, just simmer.  Then season to taste, if necessary.

If it comes out lousy, don’t blame me. But what could be bad?  “Echub mine eggana soris” ( I have my own problems).
