I hadn't made Sopas in a long time so I did the other day.
Thought I'd share the recipe with you.
Place in Spice Bag or make Cheesecloth bundle:
3/4 can Pickling Spice
5 Bay Leaves
1 can Tomato Sauce
1 Onion, chopped
4 cloves Garlic, chopped
Salt to taste
1/2 cup Dry Wine (Burgandy)
3 lbs. Stew Meat
Cook meat and save liquid.
Place all ingredients, except mint, into large pot.
Cover with water.
Cook 2-3 hours till done.
You can see my recipe had been used many, many times ;)
Add the tied bunch of mint and simmer 15 mins. more.
Remove spice bag and Mint.
Serve over sliced French Bread.
Sorry for the bad photo.
I forgot to take a photo of it plated
so had to grab an old one.
