Tasty beef soup

Almost everyone likes to eat beef soup. But for a good beef soup is not necessarily, for. B. Tafelspitz necessary. I use this only if the Tafelspitz is the main dish afterwards.

For a tasty beef soup, just plain good beef stew and beef bones and, of course, root vegetables are enough. But essential are mace blossoms as a spice. These give, applied very sparingly, the soup an incomparable taste. Really after a strong beef soup, if you know what I mean.

The recipe I have "inherited" from my mom, which made a real "soup pot" - with vegetable and meat insert and fries!

Later, the leftover fries, (my recipe was previously published in FM) were jam-filled and we kids were happy.


  • 800-1000 g of beef meat
  • 600 g beef bones
  • 2 large carrots peeled in the whole
  • 1 large yellow turnip peeled in the whole
  • 1 small parsley root peeled in the whole
  • 1/2 onion with peel
  • 1.5 L of water
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • Chives for garnish
  • Macis blossom to one centimeter - beware, this spice is very intense and spicy!


  1. Wash meat and bones well and place in a saucepan with the remaining ingredients.
  2. Bring to a boil and simmer over medium heat with the lid closed for at least 2 hours. I use a pressure cooker and the cooking time is 45 minutes.
  3. After the cooking time, the soup is strained over a sieve in another pot. The bones and onion are disposed of.
  4. The root vegetables are cut into lozenges and the meat in bite sized pieces and served in the soup.
  5. As I wrote, fries would be ideal as an additional deposit. If you do not want to do this work, you can also use vermicelli.
  6. Sprinkled with some chives, the soup is ready to serve.

I would be glad, if you like the recipe of my mom!
