Our chef, Franz Schönegger, divulges one of his best recipes for you to cook at home:
Ingredients for 4 servings:
½ celery root
1 bunch of parsley
600 g lean beef
500 g beef bones
2 bay leaves
½ bunch of chives
Salt and pepper (to taste)
1 pinch of thyme (dried)
Scald the beef bones shortly in boiling water, strain and chill them to create a clear soup. Then put them in a large pot filled with cold water and bring to the boil. Add the beef together with 2 bay leaves, season well and let simmer at low heat for about 2 hours (depending on the thickness of the beef). Regularly skim off the foam.
Cut the peeled carrots and the celery into cubes, coarsely chop the parsley and the peeled onion. Add the vegetables to the soup during the last 30 minutes and boil at low heat until all ingredients are soft. Remove the bones and meat from the soup, cut the meat into small cubes and add it to the soup again.
Sprinkle with chives before serving.
If you like, you can round off your Old Viennese Stock Pot with noodles (to be cooked separately).
We wish you bon appétit!
