A delicious, hearty soup that is full of flavor. I chose the stove top method, since I don't have a pressure cooker and did not plan ahead in order to use the slow cooker. However, I think the long cooking time on the stove top resulted in a very rich flavorful broth. At this time of year, my supermarket does not carry beef shanks, so I had to use short ribs instead. When the soup was finished, I removed the meat from the bones and shredded it before adding back to the soup. I also could not find fava beans, so I substituted a 15 oz. can of butter beans. While this took a bit of time to cook, my patience was definitely rewarded. I can't wait to make this again. Made by a Tasty Tester for ZWT9.
Great soup ! I was generous with the vegies and included a red pepper and broccoli. I don't think we get fava beans here so used sliced yellow beans. Made for ZWT 9.
