    keen5's Note:

    This soup is sooo good, served with a big skillet of corn bread. I believe I found it in Good Housekeeping cookbook years ago and made a few adjustments of my own. Prep time is approximate.

      This soup was really good and we enjoyed it very much...I didn't have beef shanks, so substituted beef stew meat...I think the shanks would have been better... will definitely make this again, but next time as written...Thanks for sharing...SharonP.

      Turned out great!! Used soup bone cause it's what I had on hand and subbed some beef stock for the water. Great flavor and oh so filling. My first attempt at homemade soup. Thanks for your help making it a success.
