BEEF VEGETABLE SOUP The CHICAGO STOCK YARD INN Recipe.

By

This is (was) a very famous soup, that was served at the Famous
Chicago Stock Inn Restaurant.
The Stock Yards,and all the meat packing houses, were no longer in business around,1971.
I understand a college now occupies the land.
The great entrance gate you see in the picture, was left standing.
Recipe from: Mary C. and copied from, behind the yards neighborhood, 1978 Church of Our Lady of Good Council, Mothers Club Cook Book.
