Directions:
Directions:
Place stew beef in a 5 quart pan or larger. Put enough water in pan to cover the beef and bring to a boil. Just before the water begins to boil you will need to skim the marrow off the top of the water. Continue to skim until you have as much of the marrow off as possible. Peel onion and cut it in quarters. Drop in water continuing to boil. Add tomatoes one at the time smashing them as you drop them in. Add all of the liquid in the can as well. Next you will add about 1/2 to 3/4 of the can of tomato paste and stir. It will be red but not dark red. If needed you can add more water. Add vegetables and salt and pepper. Bring it back to a boil and then turn down heat to low and cover. Simmer for about 2 to 3 hours. (You may want to simmer the meat for about an hour or so and then add the vegetables and simmer another couple of hours until vegetables are done). Bring a large pot of water to boil and add salt. While waiting for water to boil break the vermicelli into small pieces. Cook pasta until done. Drain pasta. To serve put pasta I bowl add soup liquid and then vegetables and meat. You may also want grated Romano cheese. That is they way I like it.

Personal Notes:
This dish is served in a bowl with pasta being the main ingredient in the bowl and just enough soup to make it soup. Then I add the vegetables and meat and cover it with grated Romano chees and salt and pepper to taste. This is the ultimate comfort food for me. We always shared this on Christmas Eve instead of the usual holiday food.
