I wish I could say I came up with this recipe from the boulders of Camelback Mountain but I have found grounding from this hearty “raise the dead-soup” for many years.
2 lbs buffalo
3 soup bones (Yes, you will probably have to speak to the butcher. I love Alvin at Sprouts Market in Phoenix, but its good to have several guys who have your back in the meat department! Many a Thanksgiving crisis was averted because I had a friend behind the counter.)
3 cartons of Beef Broth
2 Tablespoons minced Garlic
2 Anaheim peppers
2 cobs of corn
1 small bunch of celery
3 large carrots
1 cup of red wine, and a glass for later!
Salt and pepper and Worcestershire sauce
Get a cauldron – a big heavy pot you believe in and boil your soup bones in 2 cartons of beef broth with 2 tablespoons of garlic just keep that going while you check facebook, brush your hair, call a friend, fold some laundry and when you get another window of time you can….
Brown your 2 lbs of buffalo (stew meat or roast) in ¼ cup olive oil with 2 diced onions, 2 roughly chopped Anaheim peppers and when the onions go transparent the peppers feel entwined with the onions and the buffalo gives up its bloody hue add it to the party in the Cauldron! Boil that another hour or so, straighten your desk, twitter, email, do your online banking, read the paper, ya know, do your life.
Then chop up your celery and carrots and strip the kernels off of your corncobs and put the veggies in the pot with 1 cup of red wine a dash of Worcestershire sauce if it seems too dry for your taste then add the other carton of beef broth.
Keep simmering for an hour or until your brew smells like all the flavors have committed to being on the same team! Feel the power….
