(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 a 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-schmancy 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 mishit 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).
