Carrot And Beef Short Rib Soup Recipe

Last year I rushed my entry into the Woolworths Soup Competition as we were heading for our annual overseas trip. I entered three soup recipes, based on the concept of the soups currently sold by Woolworths at that time. One of my entries was my broccoli and cheese soup recipe. I thought this would be perfect for reheating. My concept of what Woolworths was looking for was far off base. This year I gave a lot of thought to what I wanted to do for my entry. We are talking about R50 000 winner takes all, and I really want to be the winner. This carrot and beef short rib soup came about from a few factors. I had some carrots in my fridge that needed cooking and decided they would be a perfect base for my soup. I then turned to my flavour thesaurus and beef came up as a good match. I have never before cooked with beef short ribs so I thought they would be a good addition to the soup. I think this soup is awesome, and I hope the judges think so too!

  1. I was also totally off base with what Woolies were looking for. I was very surprised by the winner too.
    I certainly would have given your soup the prize!
