Onions; chopped
Carrots; peeled & chopped

Cloves garlic; minced
½ teaspoon Pepper

Here is a great soup recipe from the Montreal Gazette from last winter. The good thing is that you can vary the ingredients according to what you have on hand.

(¾ cup barley or tiny dry pasta shells instead of potatoes) (cauliflower and/or green beans can replace some of the cabbage) In a large stock pot, heat oil & brown beef on both sides until nicely colored. Transfer to a plate. Add onions, carrots, celery, garlic & pepper.

Cook 8 minutes or until softened. Return meat to pan & add water, tomatoes & salt. Bring to a boil, reduce heat & simmer, covered for at least 1½ hours or until beef is tender. Remove shanks from pot with a slotted spoon.

Cut meat from the bone, chop, & return to the soup. Add cabbage, potatoes & parsley & simmer, covered, 30 minutes more. Adjust seasoning to taste.

All you need now is a huge bowl, a spoon & a loaf of crusty bread on the side!!
