How to Make Portuguese Sopas


  • 1Use a 6-8 quart pot and fill 1/2 to 2/3 full.
  • 2Put meat, chopped onions, cinnamon, sauces, ketchup, wine and spices into pot and bring to a boil.
  • 3Put the whole spices into a tea ball and submurge in broth.
  • 4Check meat and right before it starts to flake, remove from the pot and let cool.
  • 5Cut into bite size pieces while cabbage is cooking, and return to the pot after the cabbage is done.
  • 6Should take 2-3 hours on a slow burner, but the meat is flavored better when cooked in a crockpot.
  • 7The cabbage is added at the end and should be boiled until translucent, but not so it breaks up.
  • 8The last thing to add before you turn off heat is mint.
  • 9Serve Sopas over french bread slices.
