  • 225g beef marrow bones
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground black pepper
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 (400g) tin chopped tomatoes
  • 750ml beef stock
  • 1 litre water
  • 2 medium carrots, coarsely chopped
  • 4 tablespoons chopped fresh coriander
  • 1 potato, quartered
  • 2 ears sweetcorn, husked and cut into thirds
  • 2 chayotes, quartered
  • 1 medium head cabbage, cored and cut into wedges

  • 4 tablespoons finely chopped onion
  • 45g fresh coriander, chopped

MethodPrep:30min ›Cook:2hr ›Ready in:2hr30min

  1. Heat a heavy soup pot over medium-high heat until very hot. Add the oil, tilting the pan to coat the bottom. Add the meat and bones and season with salt and pepper. Cook and stir until thoroughly browned.
  2. Add 1 onion and cook until onion is also lightly browned. Stir in the tomatoes and stock. The liquid should cover the bones by 1.25cm. If not, add enough water to compensate. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 1 hour with the lid on loosely. If meat is not tender, continue cooking for another 10 minutes or so.
  3. Pour in the water and return to a simmer. Add the carrot and 4 tablespoons coriander and cook for 10 minutes, then stir in the potato, sweetcorn and chayotes. Simmer until vegetables are tender. Push the cabbage wedges into the soup and cook for about 10 more minutes.
  4. Ladle soup into large bowls, including meat vegetables and bones. Garnish with jalapenos, finely chopped onion and additional coriander. Squeeze lime juice over all and serve with radishes.


Beef marrow bones can be purchased from your local butchers.

Chayotes and pickled jalapeno peppers can be purchased online.

I have been making this soup for many years, my husband is Mexican and he and our 3 children love it. My recipe is very similar, I do add some minced garlic and I have used stew meat when the shank was not meaty enough, we like a lot of meat in this. I don't use beef broth but instead I use water and beef stock base. Also cumin is a must in this recipe at least a teaspoon or two. I have also frozen this with great results, it does make a lot! Be sure to add the cilantro near the end of cooking and be sure to squeeze lime juice into your individual bowl before eating with a handful of corn tortillas.-03 Mar 2008

And 5 more stars! This recipe has the best directions I've seen on this site! Remember, this soup is supposed to have chunks of veggies, so don't go crazy chopping everything into little morsels! This makes ALOT of soup...maybe 8 Aztec warriors could polish this off, but, heck, it get's better every day. I used 1 beef shank and 1 lb of boneless short rib meat cut into 1/2 cubes. I love the chayote, but if you can't find it, substitute 2 med. zucchini chunked, but don't put this in until you add the cabbage or it will over cook. I used 4 chunks of frozen corn-on-the-cob defrosted for the fresh corn. My only change was to also add 1 8oz. can of tomato sauce and a packet of Goya Sazon (if you read any of my reviews, it seems to find it's way into most everything). All you need for a complete meal is corn bread or garlic bread (yeah, excuse me for mixing ethnicities, but if it tastes good, do it!!) Thanks again for a fabulous recipe and for your attention to detailed instruction!-24 Dec 2006

What goes in Vegetable Beef Soup

Stewing beef – anything economical, in small bite size pieces (remember, we’re making a soup here, not a stew)

Red wine, stout or guinness – all of these work great here. Red wine gives it a classic beef stew flavour, Guinness or stout will give the soup a more intense, deep flavour like Irish Guinness Stew. I use wine most frequently because I always have some on hand, and because I prefer not to just use part of a can of beer that I wouldn’t choose to drink!

Caldo De Res: Authentic Mexican Beef and Vegetable Soup

I love how food, like yarn, can sew together generations.

I never met my mother’s mother, Maria (she died before I was born), but I think of her often.

I think of her at times, like last week, when after a long day all I wanted was a mug of tea and hot bath, and just as the bath water was warming up, I knocked my tea onto the concrete floor. With glass everywhere, to pray for patience — as my grandmother would have — was all that I could muster: “Dame paciencia Señor.”

And I think of her at times, like this week, when I made caldo de res, a traditional Mexican beef soup, that my grandmother made for my mom and my mom made for us.

The key to caldo de res, I think, is the timing. Here’s why: If you throw in all the vegetables at once, by the time the corn and carrots are cooked, the squash and potatoes will be slop.

So the key is to add the vegetables in the proper order (corn, carrots, celery, onion/tomato/cilantro, cabbage, potato, squash) with about fifteen minutes between each one.

Fifteen minutes between each one?

You mean it takes more than two hours to make this soup?!

Caldo de Res: Traditional Mexican Beef Soup

1.5 – 2 lbs. bone-in beef short ribs (about 4 ribs)

1 cob corn, peeled and cut into quarters

2 carrots, peeled and sliced into chunks

2 ribs celery, sliced into chunks

1/4 yellow onion, sliced thin

1/4 cup cilantro leaves, plus more for serving

1/2 green cabbage, sliced into two or three wedges

2 white potatoes, scrubbed and sliced into chunks

2 summer squash, sliced into chunks

Fresh cilantro, for serving

Lemon or lime wedges, for serving

Sliced fresh jalapeños, for serving

Corn tortillas, for serving

Fill a large pot with water, about 2/3 full.

Bring the water to a boil. Then reduce the heat to medium so the water continues to bubble but is not at a rolling boil.

As foam rises to the top, skim it off with a spoon and discard.

After skimming the foam, set the lid ajar, and cook the short ribs for about 50 minutes.

Then add the corn, set the lid ajar, and cook for about 15 minutes.

Then add the celery, set the lid ajar, and cook for about 15 minutes. While the celery is cooking, heat the olive oil in a small pan over medium heat. Add the onions cook for 1-2 minutes.

Add the tomatoes cook for 1-2 minutes.

Add the cilantro and stir.

Pour the onion-tomato-cilantro mixture into the pot of soup. Season the soup with about 1/2 tablespoon salt (you can add more later).

Around this time, you will probably need to add more water, as much of the original water will have evaporated by now. Just dump it right in — about 2-3 cups should bring you back up to the original water line.

Then add the carrots, set the lid ajar, and cook for about 15 minutes.

Then add the cabbage, set the lid ajar, and cook for about 15 minutes.

Then add the potatoes, set the lid ajar, and cook for … you guessed it … about 15 minutes.

Finally, add the squash, and cook for 10 more minutes. Test the veggies cook for 5-10 more minutes if needed.

Taste add more salt if needed. Remove pot from heat.

Serve soup warm, with cilantro, lime or lemon wedges, sliced jalapeños, and corn tortillas.

Caldo de Res – Mexican Beef Soup Recipe

Caldo de Res is a traditional Mexican and Guatemalen beef and vegetable soup. Caldo de Res translates to “Beef Soup” in Spanish. Other names for this soup in Mexico are “cocido” or “puchero”.

To prepare a pot of this comforting soup, the beef and bones are simmered over the stove until the meat is tender and results in an aromatic broth. The beef and bones are removed from the broth, then large chunks of vegetables are added and cooked until softened. Beef chunks are added back in before serving.

A pot of Caldo de Res will typically include the following vegetables: ears of corn, potatoes, carrots, yucca, squash and cabbage. You may find in some Latin markets that the vegetables for Caldo de Res and pre-cut and packaged ready to take home and prepare. The soup itself is not spicy, but if an individual wants to add heat to their bowl of soup, a spicy salsa or chopped peppers can be added in as part of the garnishment.

Guatemalans traditionally look forward to enjoying Caldo de Res for Saturday lunch. It is also popular to find lunch carts in Guatemala City selling Caldo de Res as a Monday special to help cure the weekend hangover and many Mexican households also enjoy as a Sunday meal. Bowls of soup are usually accompanied with sides of corn tortillas and rice. Favorite garnishment toppings include chopped onions, peppers, sliced radishes, cilantro or mint, avocado slices and a squeeze of fresh lime. When serving Caldo de Res, it is also a good idea to also serve a small plate on the side to set the chunks of corn or larger pieces of vegetables to enjoy separately.

Crock-Pot Mexican Beef & Veggie Soup

I was intrigues because I had never seen it before. I didn’t know what the Caldo Soup Mix was. But, knowing how good soup is when made in the slow cooker I figured I could figure it out when I got home.

After unpacking my groceries I popped on the computer and started Googling to learn exactly what Caldo Soup was and what I learned is this:

“Caldo” simply means “both” in Spanish and when it is made with beef the soup is called “Caldo de Res” or beef broth.

However Caldo de Res is more than plain beef broth. Nope, instead it is a yummy soup that is filled with carrots, cabbage, squash and potatoes.

This is “peasant” food at it’s finest. And my peasant food I simply mean the food of the people. Food that is typically a tasty, hearty way to take inexpensive ingredients and turn them into something wonderful.

If you can find a package of Caldo Soup Mix in your grocery stores butcher department go ahead and pick one up. If your store does not carry this item, have no fear this recipe lists out the ingredients you need to make a delicious and hearty soup!

8 Cup Giddyup — Yucatan-Style Beef Vegetable Soup Recipe

  • 1 lb of cubed stew beef
  • 8 cups of cubed vegetables – whatever veggies you have in the cupboard
  • 2 – 32 oz boxes beef stock (I used Meijer Naturals Beef Flavor Stock – No GMOs)
  • 1 can of V-8 juice
  • 3 tablespoons garlic, crushed
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 a lime, do not squeeze, just place cut lime in soup to simmer (hold this ingredient back if you prefer a more southwest Mexican flavor)
  • 1/2 a bunch of cilantro, chopped (hold back a handful of chopped cilantro for serving)
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Brown beef in pan. Deglaze pan with a cup of beef broth, transfer ingredients to a stew pot. Add all other ingredients. Bring to a boil. Cover and reduce temperature to low and slow simmer for two to three hours. Remove lime before serving. Serve hot and topped with chopped cilantro (also – tortilla chips and a little sour cream is a nice topper touch).
