Cock A Leekie Soup
/ Cuisine: Australia

Ingredients

Qty unit Ingredient
3 1/2 pound
1 pound
6 cups
3 slices
1 tablespoon
1 whole
3/4 cup
1 1/2 cups

Directions:

This soup is delicious served with a nice piece of crusty bread.

Cook the bacon in a large stock pot. Add chicken, beef shanks, chicken stock, thyme, and bay leaf. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-high and simmer, covered, for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile in a separate pot, boil pearl barley in 1 1/2 cups water for 10 minutes. Drain and set aside.

Remove chicken from the pot. When cool enough to handle, remove the skin and bones. Cut the chicken into bite size pieces. Set aside. Discard the skin and bones.

Add leeks and cooked barley to the stock pot that held the chicken, simmer for 15 minutes.

Remove beef shanks from the pot and debone. Chop the beef meat coarsely, and return to the pot, along with the chicken.

Simmer covered, for 5 minutes more. Taste the broth for seasoning. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Remove the bay leaf. Garnish with chopped parsley. Serve hot.

When a dough recipe tells you to "punch down" the dough, it means exactly that, punch it down with your fist.
