This recipe takes time, but it not hard. Great for a day you are home doing household chores that require lots of breaks – folding laundry, cleaning up the toys, monitoring homework, etc. I did not use a leek – find them expensive and don’t really like them. I roughly chopped up about ½ cup of celeriac (from our winter share) and used that to make the broth instead.
No short ribs? While they added texture and flavor and made the soup a whole meal – this recipe would work great as a traditional French Onion Soup.
