This is a recipe that I just pulled from the moth balls, we used to eat it as kids. I remember getting a big piping hot bowl of this stew/soup with a side of scallions. We used to take a bit of soup and bite into the scallion. We used to make it with marrow bones, but to reduce the fat we substituted chicken.
