Beef Spare Rib Vegetable Soup

1) My phone was on the charger during the cook (due to a lot of anus talk this morning courtesy of @SGH and the rest of y'all) I have no cook pics. My bad. I'm the worst. 

2) I had a bunch of beef spare ribs lying around so I thought I would take a stab at vegetable beef soup with beef ribs. 

3) Got a lot of great advice on a separate thread this week and promised I would post. 

4). Here it is. I realized about 5 bites in I hadn't taken any pics so this is what you get. I used scissors and snipped what i could into a Dutch oven with oil and threw the rest and the bones in. Then I tossed in 1 onion, a diced carrot and a diced celery stick and some garlic. Cooked for a few minutes, added 6 qts of water and simmered 2 hours. Removed bones and trimmed the rest of the meat and tossed in. Then threw in 2 of each (carrots, celery, potatoes) salt, pepper, cayenne, splash of Tabasco and cooked 30 minutes. Tossed in okra in the last ten minutes. Served with mozzarella French bread. 

5) Results. I was pleasantly surprised with the beef Rib meat. I had to skim the fat off the top a few times due to the cut. But between the bone marrow and the rib meat it had a much richer beef flavor than typical veggie beef soup which I am usually very "whatever" about. Also putting celery and carrots in at two stages made some soft and some hard so you weren't just eating mushy soup which I hate)

Vote: 6.5 out of 10 for soup. (Full disclosure I prefer creamy soups like bisques and chowders. I would normally give vegetable beef a 4 at best on a good day. If you like this kind of soup it's pretty dang tasty)

    If your phone was dead due to speaking about anus, then you are forgiven for no pics. Anus always take priority. It should be spoken of both often and early. 
    On a seperate note, great looking soup. 
    Here is a free tip, next time add an anus or two to the soup. It's a real crowd pleaser and you will not be disappointed.  

    Location- Just "this side" of Biloxi, Ms.

    Status- Standing by.

    Arsenal-Just a small wore out and broken down Weber kettle. No other means to cook at all.

    The greatest barrier against all wisdom, the stronghold against knowledge itself, is the single thought in ones mind, that they already have it all figured out.

    @SGH So no joke, my buddy was in the deer stand today last day of deer season, and took what I consider a bad shot and hit a doe in the back hind quarters to the organs. (Like an inch away from the anus). He sent me the text and I replied back "YOU SON OF A B!TCH! YOU SHOT THE CHUTE STEAK! THAT'S THE BEST PART!!!"

    About 2 hours later he called and said, "do you really want me to save that for you?"

    priceless.
