I love this recipe because it's so easy to prepare. It allows me time to play with my two children - Avery, 4, and Sarah, 2 - or work on craft projects. I usually serve it with crusty bread and a crisp green salad.

I have made this soup several times and use beef shanks, cheaper than short ribs, and receive many compliments. The soup is very tasty.

I haven't made the soup yet just found it on while roaming but it does sound good other than the tomatoes myself and husband and 4 sons do not like tomatoes and i was just woundering if it had a tomatoe taste to it cause if so it would be a waste for me to make just asking? thanks

The genius of this recipe lies in the bone-in short ribs, I refer to as flavor missiles. The chicken bullion granules boiled with the ribs makes for a amazing broth. Unlike the previous reviews I added the entire 28oz of tomatoes. In fact I added 2 tbls of tomato paste to give it a nice deep rich base. FANTASTIC flavor. a tsp of basil, tyme, and oregano for personal touch and I'm telling you. Excellent soup!
