Any cut of meat that is meant to be grilled (instead of slow cooked) is great for this recipe. Depending on your budget, the higher quality of meat the better this will taste. I good piece of meat needs nothing more than salt and pepper before it goes on the grill. In Israel the top cuts of meat I would suggest for this would be #1,5,6,7 (1 being the best).
You can make this soup as thick or thin as you wish. I love thinner soups, especially when I add rice noodles, because then I can slurp them up like ramen!
You know that sweet chili sauce in the bottle that everyone buys? It’s filled with preservatives and chemicals that you don’t need but people really love the flavor. I recreated it in this dish but instead used fresh ingredients. These got finished in 4 minutes.
This soup is so hearty and great if you are having a crowd on a cold day. I put regular dried black beans in and they were fully cooked within 2 hours.
Miso is the elegant Japanese term for fermented soybean paste. When mixed with honey and spices and cooked it creates a unique but gentle flavor.
