Yeah my favourite is usually steak and some grilled veggies (gotta love Alberta beef!)

Otherwise my favourite recovery food is my moms vegetable beef soup... You can literally use whatever leftover veggies you've got but here's how I make it.


Moms vegetable beef soup:

- Onions
- Chalots
- Garlic
- Spices
- cans of diced tomatoes
- barley
- beef (shank, cubes, whatever you've got)
- can of whole kernel corn
- Vegetables (I like carrots, celery, turnip, parsnips, peppers, etc.)
- beef stock + water



Sautee onions, garlic, challots or any combination of the three in butter. I add verjus to give everything a sweet flavour, you can use white wine too.

I usually add spices to the onion mix. Some worchestire sauce, salt, pepper, parsley, curry, chili powder, etc. The flavour seems to come out when it fries with the veggies!

In a side pan, brown the meat.

Add diced celery, carrots and other root vegetables to sauteeing onion mix. Slowly add beef stock while sauteeing.

Once onions are clear and root vegetables slightly cooked, add in diced tomatoes (I usually add in 3 large cans of diced tomatoes and juice), diced peppers, corn, and any other non root vegetables.

Rinse barley as per package directions. I usually put about 1/2 cup of barley in. If you don't rinse it the soup gets quite thick and starchy. More of a stew if that's your thing.

Once meat has browned, put into soup. For shank I usually throw the whole thing in the soup, after cooking for several hours I'll take the bone out and make sure all the marrow gets in the soup.

Cook for a while and enjoy! I usually cook it for about 3 hours, but it can be eaten within about 1/2 hour of everything being added to the pot. There's so much good stuff in the soup I usually can't stop. My mom calls it magic soup cause it fixes me when I'm sick or hurt!

Lately I've gotten experimental and added a bunch of fresh ginger to the onion mix. There's no wrong way to make this soup.

Neither knew PHO nor Dutch Overn I'll travel through Vietnam end of the year and will fill this gap!
The Dutch Oven sounds like what would work perfectly on the hotplate of the spare wood stove we only use for extra heating on very cold days.


@poutanen: I do a lot of boiled beef/vegetables soups during winter. Normally use broccoli, potatoe, cauliflower, tomato, carrot, leech and zucchini. I'll try your mixture next time. Never had a soup with corn. Sounds yummy


I really thought quicksand was going to be a much bigger issue in my life when I was little

Lots of corn and root vegetables grown here! The other big thing is the turnip. After cooking it takes on an orange colour and is sweet in taste. Love the soup! I'd send some across the pond if it'd make the journey... lol

Hmmm... thinking of that, theres a big imbalance between the big amount of corn that grows here and how seldom we eat corn... guess it's mainy cultivated for cattle salad and corn cob for BBQ, that's about the only usage. And polenta. Oh! And popcorn
Give a pot to the flying pigs on their way back home

Never heard it but there must be a Chinese rule "Don't eat Sichuan-pepper hot-pot before a 8hrs public bus trip" you DON'T want to visit public Chinese toilets...
