    Default Improv: Nancy's Short Ribs --> Barb's Vegetable Soup

    I'd made a rather large amount of Nancy's Hungarian Short Ribs thing in
    anticipation of firstborn's visit a few weeks ago. I'd caught a sale
    on the meat for $2.50/lb at the secret meat store and went kind of
    overboard. :-\

    We ate them with noodles. Then Rob and I ate them with halushky. Then
    we ate them again. Yesterday I made soup: chopped half an onion, cut
    up a few carrots, sliced some celery, peeled and diced a few small reds
    and cooked those in some Knorr-based vegetable broth. I chopped the
    meat and put it and its jelled liquid into the soup kettle and added a
    lot more water and some beef base. Then some pesto. Some tomato juice.
    Some frozen green beans and peas. Some more pesto. Some fresh
    rosemary. Some fresh parsley. Some fresh spinach.

    I poured it over noodles in our bowls and added black pepper.
    And It Was Good.

    At that price, I would too! I never see them on sale. Ever.

    It sounds really delicious. And you know I'll be checking out the
    short ribs when I hit the store in a little while.

    Nancy's short ribs are my favorite way to make them. Sounds like you
    did just great with the leftovers, very creative.

    You are truly blessed by the Food Shopping Fairy. I haven't seen
    short ribs in any store in YEARS that cost less per package than good
    steak or rib roast.

    Short ribs cheap???? Now that is a major score. I have often lamented
    the days when they were dirt cheap and my wife, the braising queen, used
    to make wonderful meals of short ribs for next to nothing. I would love
    to have a good feed of short ribs but they now cost more than steak and
    when I consider the substantial cost of extra ingredients and the hours
    of cooking, it just isn't worth it.

    I can get them at the secret meat store. And a butcher shop on the
    other end of town -- that's where they were $5.89/lb. <cough choke gasp>

    Does the Secret Meat Store rely on the chupacabra to provide their beef?

    We have been fortunate, both here and where we used to live, to have
    inexpensive and _good_ butchers nearby. Ours here is about a mile from
    our house. He butchered a whole lamb for us that averaged about $2.50 a
    pound for what we brought home. He did the butchering on our steer,
    too, and we buy things like ham hocks and such from him. He's kind of
    crotchety, but nice, fair and does a good job.

    No, no, no, think Southern Canada and Big Foot, not Puerto Rico and the
    chupacabra.

    We used to have a butcher like that, he died and none of his kids wanted
    a menial job like butcher. I miss Old Robert, he, too, was crotchety but
    sure knew how to cut meat.

    This fellow's son works for him, so I'm hoping he's interested in
    keeping the business going.

    Like surgeons - if the choice is between competent and good bedside
    manner, I'll take competent every time.

    Oh Amen! Me too~! And I get to see 'em all and have stories to tell but
    occasionally a surgeon will be both extremely competent *and* personable.

    I've taken care of a few butchers lately and always enjoy talking meat
    with 'em. This last one I cared for promised to take good care of me if
    I came into his market but its in a rough area a distance away and I've
    not taken him up on the offer.

    When mom raised lambs, her butcher loved it when she had one done for
    me because I wanted a whole rack of lamb, not chops... he'd "french"
    it for me and then hand make those frilly panty things you put over
    the bone for serving. Nice guy!
