I’ve been waiting for 2 weeks to make this bloody soup but the heat hit and it was the last thing on my mind.
This was one of my faves growing up and I’d always request this from my mum.
I asked her for the recipe. Of course she didn’t have one, it’s just all measured by eye which is fair enough. I still got the basics off her and it was tasty!⁣

500g beef brisket, all fat trimmed off⁣⁣
