Someone I love has been sick.  In the hopes that she will regain strength and recover, I’ve been busy in the kitchen.  The person who taught me how to make this soup is a lovely lady.  Now I prepare this soup for another lovely lady.

1   package beef ribs
4   russet potatoes peeled and quartered
¼ finely chopped onion
¼ cube vegetable bouillon
¼ cube beef bouillon
1   tablespoon oil a bunch of chopped cilantro

Heat the oil in a heavy pot on med-high heat. Add the beef ribs and cook until browned, stirring often. (You can leave the fat on the ribs but in this instance, I cut off the fat to keep the soup lite). Add the onion and toss for a few minutes. Season with salt. Pour at least eight cups of water into the pot and boil on med-high heat, partially covered, until the meat is tender, approximately 1 hour but sometimes longer. Add water as necessary. When the meat is tender, add the potatoes and bouillon. Cook until the potatoes are soft. Add the chopped cilantro and serve.

Alguem que eu amo muito tem estado doente. Quero que ela fique melhor logo e por isto tenho passado muitos horas na cozinha, preparando sopas e outras refeiçoes leves. A pessoa que me mostrou com fazer esta sopa é uma pessoa maravilhosa, igual a pessoa para quem cozinho.

1 pacote de costela de boi
4 batatas descascadas, cada uma cortada em quatro pedacos
¼ de uma cebola picada
¼ cubo de caldo de Knorr, sabor legumes
¼ cubo de caldo de Knorr, sabor carne
1 colher de sopa de oleo
Coentro picado

Aqueca o azeite numa panela pesada, no fogo médio-alto. Adicione a costela e cozinhe, mexendo de vez em quando. Acrescente a cebola e mexa por alguns minutos. Tempere com sal. Adicione pelo menos oito copos de água e deixe ferver durante uma hora ou até a carne amolecer. Adicione mais água a medida que for preciso. Quando a carne estiver mole, adicione a batata e os cubos Knorr. Cozinhe ate as batatas amolecerem. Regue com o coentro e sirva.
