Recipe War Round #5: Motherfucking Soup

October 6, 2008

This weeks recipe war battle is soup! Comrade PhysioProf loves motherfucking soup. In fact, Comrade Physioprof considers a day without soup like a day without sunshine. The soup that Comrade PhysioProf has decided on is Italian wedding soup with beef and pork meatballs, and escarole. I just made the shit, drinking a fuckload of Jameson, and let me tell you: it is fucking tasty!!


1/2 pound ground pork
2/3 pound ground beef (90% lean)
3 tablespoons chopped Italian parsley
6 cloves chopped garlic
4 tablespoons grated parmagiano reggiano
2 tablespoons chopped fresh oregano leaves
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
2 large eggs, beaten
2 tablespoons cornmeal

extra virgin olive oil
3/4 cups chopped onion
3/4 cups chopped carrots
6 cloves garlic, chopped
12 cups chicken broth (yes, Comrade PhysioProf used packaged; you wanna boil a motherfucking chicken, knock your ass out)
4 cups ripped up escarole
1 1/2 cups uncooked orzo

Chef’s Cocktails
Jameson on the rocks, as required

(1) Chop all that vegetable shit up, and grate the motherfucking reggiano (grate a fuckload extra, because you are gonna put a bunch on the shit when it’s done).

(2) Combine all the meatball ingredients in a large bowl and mix thoroughly with your hands:

(3) Sautee the onions, carrots, and garlic in olive oil, until it looks like this:

(4) Add the chicken broth and bring to a boil, adding salt and fresh-ground pepper to taste.

(5) While thta shit is sauteeing and coming to a boil, form the meatball stuff into little balls:

(6) Add the meatballs and the orzo to the soup and simmer on medium heat for ten minutes. Add the escarole and simmer for another five minutes:

(7) Plate and eat!!!!!!!!!

And put some grated reggiano on that motherfucker!!!

    This soup looks great!

  6. ScienceMama Says:

    It’s going to be a tough call this week.

  7. Wait! Is that some fucking USC paraphernalia in the upper corner of that last picture? Does that mean that your recipe tastes like bitterness and defeat?

    Dr. Isis feels a little ill. But she still adores PhysioProf.

  8. Nat Blair Says:

    That soup looks incredible! Can’t wait to fire that one up. Bonus points as the boy will definitely eat meatballs.

    As for Jameson on the rocks, it’s not likely it’ll be around long enough for any melting is gonna dilute that sucker.

  9. Physiogroupie IV Says:

    This recipe looks labor intensive. However, the challenger’s mint pesto thing weirded me out. I loved Isis’ “Mommy’s Time Out,” though.

  10. Physiobabe Says:

    I’ve made this soup before and it’s simply wonderful. Thanks for reminding me to make it again. And, of course, I voted for you.

  11. “Physiobabe?” Right…because that person won’t be at all biased in their judging.

  12. Physiobabe Says:

    “That person” voted for Isis last time.

  13. ok, it’s official. you are fucking hilarious.

  14. Physiogroupie IV Says:

    How did you guys do the McCain references ahead of the debate? Freaking psychics!
