An excellent soup no doubt with the presentation of a hearty stew and the taste of a finer soup. I made one change I substituted the meatballs with thin strips of tenderloin. Sometime the meatballs have a high fat content and I did not want a thin layer of grease topping my soup. However with bread and potatoes its very comforting. Cheers.

This was a very good soup. The only change I made was to use cran-grape juice mixed with some white cooking wine instead of the Madeira/Port. I used frozen meatballs and served this with mashed potatoes and dinner rolls.

This is a VERY comforting soup! All the chopping was a little tedious, but the rewards are definitely there when the soup is done. I think next time I would use more tomato I had 3 plum tomatoes and I think I might like more. The seasonings blend perfectly, I used the Worcestershire and Port. I cannot wait to try the leftovers as I think the flavor will only improve on sitting! This will be repeated often here, another winner from PanNan! Thanks!

Exceptional soup! This is one of the best soups I have ever made. I used Basic Meatballs for the meatballs substituting 1/2 of beef with ground pork. This took some time to prepare, but I will do it again, and often! I used the port wine and Worcestershire sauce options. Try this. I can not convey how good it is. Just as good the next day heated up. Thanks PanNan!
