Directions

  1. Put in a pot 3 quarts of water and the meat.
  2. Before the water comes to a boil, remove from the top all the brown particles floating on the water (This is very important as it removes some of the fat and leaves the soup clear!)
  3. Add to the water, the potatoes, the celery, the onion and the tomatoes cut in small pieces.
  4. Add 3 Tbs of EV olive oil.
  5. Let the meat and all the vegetables cook for about 40 minutes.
  6. Check on the meat as you want it to come easily off the bones.
  7. Serve the meat hot. The soup is excellent with pasta.  Nonna Romana always makes it with cut spaghetti.
