This recipe came about because of some special bargains I got at my neighborhood grocers.

I wanted to make a soup, but this recipe turned into a STEW, after adding all of the ingredients.

Hearty, thick rich & full of meat, just the way my husband prefers. I added Pork Tenderloin, & Country Style Ribs along with a package of Neck Bones to create this satisfying meal on a cold below zero wind chill day.

I have a similar recipe posted for Poor Mans Soup, but this one has more expensive cuts of meats added, hence the name, it is really tasty & satisfying with the Wild Brown Rice Mix added
