Serves 8-10

This is a sneak peak recipe from Susie Fishbein’s newest book, Kosher By Design, Cooking Coach. It’s one of Susie’s favorite recipes.

3 tablespoons canola oil
2 pounds beef marrow bones
1-½ pounds cubed shell roast or beef stew meat
1 onion, peeled cut into ½ inch dice
6 cloves garlic, sliced
2 teaspoons hawaij, Yemenite spice mixture *
¼ cup tomato paste
3 carrots, peeled, cut into thick rounds
6 cups chicken stock
2 large or 3 small russet potatoes, peeled, cut into large chunks
Chopped fresh cilantro for garnish

Heat the oil in a large soup pot over medium heat. Add the marrow bones. Stir, cover and cook for 5 minutes. Add the beef cubes, cover, and cook for 10 minutes longer, until there is some brown coloring on both the bones and the meat.

Uncover the pot and add the onion and garlic: cook for 5 minutes. Sprinkle in the hawaij. Stir and cook for 3 minutes. Stir in the tomato paste, coating the meat and bones. Cook for 3 -4 minutes to deepen the tomato flavor. Add the carrots and stock. Cover the pot. Turn the heat to low and cook, simmering for 1 hour. Skim off any foam or fat.

Add the potatoes. Cover and cook for an additional hour.

Discard the bones. Ladle soup into bowls. Garnish with chopped cilantro.

  1. Thanks for the recipe. Any tips on finding hawaij for those of us who don’t live in NY or LA? It probably makes the soup.

  2. Love your recipes! Went to web to see what spices make up hawaij and would like to know what is in your blend. Hope I am a winner….

  3. Thanks for coming out with a new book. I fiend for new interesting recipes and I am sure that all your recipes will be novel and inspiring.
    Thanks
