Harrigan's Prime Rib Soup

"This is one the best soups that you will ever put your lips on! This makes a great meal served along with a hardy home-made bread. There are only a few locations in the Great State of Texas that you can enjoy this in person."

    Great recipe but having no access to Brovil I used beef "Better Than Bullion" and it came out very nice. I throw the bones in and fish them out before serving after cleaning any meat off. The last time I added diced onion and a package of Green Giant frozen kernel corn in light butter sauce. It made the dish more full bodied to be enjoyed with some crusty bread as a nice meal.

    Good recipe. I used 1/2 cup of Prime Rib fat + butter as a roux base before adding all the other ingredients. I diced some onions into the roux with a T of garlic and think these amendments make the soup better. Good luck finding Bovril, I used 2 cups of beef bouillon too for flavor. I also recommend cooking the left over bones in the soup while preparing then pull them out before serving.

    It's been 20 years since we've had this. It's the best!

    Thanks so much for the recipe! I replaces the Bovril with Kitchen Bouquet and a little beef boullion and it worked fine. I have missed this soup since they have shut down all the Harrigan's in my area....and well, since we moved out of Texas! It is such a decadant soup! Thank you once again!
