    This soup is best prepared in two installments. Make the broth one day, refrigerate overnight and remove any fat. Add the sautéed vegetables and orzo the next day.

      It turns out that you can brown the meat ahead of time and then put it in a crock-pot with water and the bay leaves, very useful if you don't mind doing prep work before hand. My family found it a bit lacking in taste as far as spices go, My mother said that she thought it would be good with more garlic as well, and I added a few dashes of sweet hungarian paprika to the soup when I was browning the meat, but I will add more next time. we love things with rich flavor, when you are choosing a vegetable mix, I reccomend one with some baby potatoes in it, because putting in frozen potatoes which were almost fully cooked already turns them into little balls of mashed potatoes almost. next time I might have a rosmary bread with it, but all in all, a very good and hearty soup.
