It is very important to choose carefully the right part of beef. For this soup, chuck roast, chuck shoulder, chuck eye-roast or top chuck is the recommended part. For those who are not familiar with this type of beef cut, here is a little information about it. Chuck steak is a cut of beef and is part of the sub primal cut known as the chuck. The typical chuck steak is a rectangular cut that is about 1” thick and containing parts of the shoulder bones. It is often known as the 7” bone steak because the shape of the shoulder bone in cross section resembles the numeral 7. The chuck also contains a lot of connective tissues including collagen that melts during cooking. The meat from chuck is used for stewing, slow cooking, braising or pot roasting. For added aroma and flavor, Spices and seasonings are used. If you are looking for a stronger onion flavor, you can use shallots. A shallot by the way is a type of onion. The only difference is their flavor. Beef stock is one magical ingredient that adds a beefy flavor. Based from experience in cooking beef stews, the beef stock is an excellent substitute for beef base or bouillon. A stock is a flavored liquid preparation and forms the basis of many dishes particularly soups and sauces. It involves simmering animal bones and/or meat, seafood, or vegetables in water and/or wine, adding mirepoix or other aromatics for more flavors. For added aroma and flavor, never forget your Italian seasonings. They are the best cooking ingredients.
