Balkan Beef and Bean SoupWhat's The Big Idea?
Very much a "regional" rather than a national dish, this is typical of a style of cooking in Serbia, Montenegro and Bosnia, so you could use it if any of those nations - or teams from that region - are playing.
Traditionally this is made using dried haricot beans, and I've stuck to that tradition for the purposes of this recipe. This does mean that the beans need a lot of time in soaking, cooking and preparation, so if you prefer to take a short cut by using tinned beans, then of course feel free to do so.
It certainly makes for a hearty warming meal, especially when served with mountains of buttered mashed potato or plenty of fresh crusty bread. Whether it's technically a soup or a stew is a bit of a grey area, but it'll fill you up either way!Shopping List
