If one puts mashed potato into a soup it becomes a stew, even if the beef is only from a cube :smile: .   David who? :unsure:

hi, my mammy god rest her, made her beef shin soup the country way

       boil shin and red lentils for a gud hour in seasoned water then add chopped parsnips and carrots boil for a further 45 mins the soup should be nice yellow colour and beef should fall off bone
   the beef is lovely with rooster spuds ... bring back the the gud old days ;)

Made a pot of shin soup yesterday , boiled/simmered the shin in seasoned water with Buchanans soup mix for about an hour then added onion , leek, carrot , parsley and dried marrow fat peas which I soaked overnight on Friday night , had a bowl yesterday tea time which was okay , today at tea time it was perfect after sitting for twenty four hours , oh yes and a couple of slices of thickly buttered Nutty Krust plain loaf to dip in  :nyam:

Even though I say it myself Mc Namee it was good , it's the only one of my Mothers recipes that I can seem to get right , the others like savoury mince , sausage casserole , braised steak and onions etc are fine but they are not hers , the shin or as my Father called it , the haugh fell off the bone .

Just a point , I remember going to the butchers with my Dad and him asking for a haugh for soup , it was a long bone with lots of meat attached , probably an elongated version of the shin we are talking about , after it was finished in the soup the dog got it .

A drap of soup it's easy to make   Soak your soup mix overnight fast boil for ten minutes then lower the heat add your shin salt pepper and cook for about an hour to cook meat then add your veg which is parsnip carrot leeks simmer til the veg is cooked add chopped Curley leaf parsley at the end of cooking if you can't get soup mix it's whole dried peas split peas lentils n barley   Don't be using an oul fowl  :D too greasy   Oh and make your own wheaten it's easy  :-*

Yes indeed!  You know what you're talkin' about here!!!  We enjoyed a hot bowl of soup in Belfast during the colder weather i.e. 1947 was a bad one as I recall.  Gerry Coventry UK. :) :)

I'll be sure to ask my Nana the next time I see her ghost. :)   Yes, I'm from Boston, MA will LOTS of ancestors from Belfast.  Like the song says My father he was orange and me mother she was green.  That's why they ended up in Boston.  :D   Anyway, anyone got a better recipe?
