    This adaptation of the famous African Elephant Soup is wonderfully delicious, aromatic and satisfying.

    Ingredients

    • 450 g beef (boneless beef neck)
    • 3 tbs peanut oil
    • 1 onion, peeled
    • 1 carrot, peeled
    • 100 g celery, root, peeled
    • 100 g parsley, root, peeled
    • 1500 - 2000 ml beef broth from 1 cube
