Armenian Spearmint Squash Stew

Submitted by: YERVANT

Introduction

This hearty Armenian soup will warm you up on a cold winter's night! Try either zucchini or my personal favorite, butternut squash, for added variation. People who think they don't like lamb love it in this dish. Stew beef makes a fine substitute. This hearty Armenian soup will warm you up on a cold winter's night!

Ingredients

    3 lb. bone in lamb or 2 lb. boneless beef or lamb, cut into 1 pieces
    2 tsp salt
    1 1/2 - 2 quarts water
    2 cloves garlic, chopped
    3 cups mashed canned tomatoes
    3 Tbsp tomato paste
    1/4 cup lemon juice
    2 1/2 lb. small zucchini or butternut squash, washed and cubed (about 1 pieces)
    1 green pepper, cut in 1 pieces
    Aleppo pepper to taste
    2 tablespoons dried, crushed mint leaves
    1 Tbsp butter (up to 2 Tbsp.)

Directions

Bring meat, salt and water to a boil. Skim off scum. Add garlic, tomatoes, tomato paste and lemon juice. Simmer for about 1 to 1 1/2 hours or until meat separates easily from bone. Drain. Cool. Separate meat from bones. Skim fat from broth. Return meat and broth to pot. Add squash and pepper. Simmer another hour or so (until all is tender). Adjust seasoning if necessary. Melt butter in small pan. When hot add crushed mint. Blend. Pour on top of soup. (Can put soup in tureen or serving dish before pouring mint and butter on top.)
