Short Rib Soup

This is one of my dad's most irresistible dishes. It has a flavorful broth, tender meat and colorful vegetables. It really hits the spot on a chilly fall or winter day.—Art Winter, Trumbull, Connecticut

    Didn’t follow recipe exactly, so can’t comment on flavor. Cooks should note that short ribs can be pretty fatty and soup will require skimming.

    Have made this twice and it was a hit both times. Will freeze some this time for those winter days I do not want to cook.
