I loved making this old fashioned, delicious soup that fed our bodies and souls. We had visions of being transported to the Outback living in wilder, yet simplier times. I did not vary too much from this recipe except to add less water to the soup since my DH likes a thick, chunky soup. I loved the turnips, and cubed them before I noticed that I should have grated them. They were wonderful cubed and I recommend doing that. The leftovers are in the freezer and we can't wait. Thanks JanS!

Very Tasty. A lovely stew/soup that everyone in my household loved. I added a pack of Lamb Ragout flavour mix instead of the onion soup and it was very awesome.

Really good and satisfying, I love these non-blended hearty soups and they make a great meal in themselves. Only small change I made was I used part of a side of lamb so just used 2 shanks plus a few of ther other small cuts that amounted to about the same amount of meat.

A real rib sticker soup/stew and we loved it. I served it with big chunky Garlic Croutons (as a change from crusty bread) and we (the DM, DS and myself) thoroughly enjoyed. Thank you Jan, made for Edition 5- Make My Recipe - a game of tag.

Great soup Jan, reminds me of the Scotch Broth my Mum used to make when I was young. A hot and hearty soup, I served with crusty rolls.
