This was a staple when I was growing up. As my grandmother wrote on her recipe" Feeds 8 people or at least 4 of us hungry "Portygees".
Grandmothers Portuguese Kale Soup
1 large beef shinbone
1 large onion, chopped
1-2 large carrots, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 large bay leaf
1 1/2 lbs linguica or chorizo sliced into rounds
1 lb fresh kale, stemmed and chopped
4 large potatos diced into large cubes
2 can shell or kidney beans (my grandmother used dried and then soaked but the cans are easier)
In a large, heavy pot simmer bone, onions, garlic, carrots and bayleaf in 8 cups water for 2 hours. Skim as needed. Add sausage and simmer for another 1/2 hour, Add kale, potatos and beans. Continue simmering until potatos are done. Remove from heat and take out shinbone. Cut meat into small pcs and add meat and marrow to to soup. Cool in fridge over night or for at least 8 hours to allow the favors to mellow and blend. Remove as much congealed fat as possible. Reheat and serve.
