Red Mutton Soup

Salam all,
Yes, it's mutton soup. Well, it's qurban, there's goat that had been slaughtered, of course there's mutton to cook. My husband decided to make the Red Mutton Soup. It's his recipe. And it is the fisrt time I enjoyed eating mutton. This mutton is different, it does not have the strong 'goaty' taste (for someone who dislike mutton). Probably because it is fresh.

The recipe:

  • 1 kg of mutton + its bones
  • 2 cans of tomato soup
  • 1 can of baked beans
  • 2 stalks of celery - cut
  • 6 cherry tomatoes - cut halved
  • 10 button mushrooms - cut into four
  • 1 carrot - diced
  • 3 shallots - sliced
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 1 inch of ginger - sliced
  • soup powder (or the bunjut)
  • Cinnamon and star anise
  • 2 table spoon of cooking oil
  • Plenty of water for boiling
  • Salt to taste

How to:
  1. Fry the onions, garlics, ginger, cinnamon and star anise till fragrant.
  2. Add water, and the bunjut.
  3. Add the mutton and its bone (I preboil these in pressure cooker for a tender result).
  4. Pour in the tomato soup, and all other ingredients except the baked beans.
  5. Let it boil and simmer to perfection in terms of it's thickness and taste.
  6. Add the baked beans just before serving for a whole bean (not mashed).
  7. Ready for serving.
Nice to be eaten with the garlic bread and its counterparts.

It's our complete dinner: All are homemade.
Coleslaw, mashed potato, garlic bread and the soup.

Bon Appetite!
