"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

Ingredients:  
2 pounds beef cut in large chunks

Directions:
I prefer to use chuck roast for this recipe but any lean beef would work. Cut beef into large chunks, roll in flour, salt well and brown in oil. Add small amount of water and simmer for an hour. Add remaining ingredients and simmer until tender, about 2 hours. Serve with pasta, rice or bread. I prefer sour dough French bread with mine!

Personal Notes:
This recipe was taken from Nana Emma's cookbook. While she calls it Portuguese Pot Roast, it is actually Sopa, the kind you find at local Portuguese celebrations. In either case, it is yum!!
