I have this same recipe and its wonderful. The most flavorful B & B soup I've made so far. For my last batch I made it with leftover prime rib roast cut up into small pieces with the fat removed. I also sauted the vegetables that I diced and added a couple cloves of garlic just because we love garlic. Next time I'll add mushrooms. Thanks for posting here.

My husband gave this a 4 but I have to go with about a 3 1/2. It had a good taste and smelled marvelous but it wasn't a soup (or stew) to me. It tasted more like it was supposed to go over pasta so we tried the leftovers on some spaghetti and it was good. Made for PAC 2008.
