Greek Beef Soup / Kreas Me Kritharaki Soupa

On a cold and wintry day, this easy one pot meal is wonderfully warming and very tasty.



1 kilo beef, I prefer shin, cut into 1inch chunks and a bone or two for a rich stock.
2 cups Orzo 1 bay leaf
2 cups fresh chopped tomatoes Salt and pepper

In a large soup pot, cover the meat with water, add the bay leaf, some salt and pepper, the tomatoes and stew the meat gently for an hour. You want the meat to be tender, so cook it longer if needed; adding more liquid as it evaporates.

When the meat is almost done remove the bone and add the orzo, stirring occasionally so that it doesnt stick to the bottom. When the orzo is done, you have soup. Serve it hot with some grated Parmesan cheese on the side, for those that want a sprinkle of it. Enjoy!

Susies Note: I use a pressure cooker for 15 minutes to make the stock. Its so much faster if youre in a hurry to get dinner on the table.
