When we heard the chill was coming we ran straight to the grocery and grabbed the ingredients for Portuguese Soup! A pot of that on the stove warms ya to the bone!! It's warming, soothing comfort food at it's best. So grab a loaf of crusty bread and join me in the kitchen. We're making Soupa!!!
1 - 1 1/2 lbs Beef Shank (Can substitute Beef Short Ribs if can't find shank works perfectly well.)
To decide how much you really need know that you should have about a 2 inch piece for each serving of soup so everyone gets a piece of the meat in their bowl.
