8 servings (serving size: 2 cups soup, 2 ounces beef)

Caldo de Res is a Mexican beef soup that's hearty enough to be a main meal and the perfect dish to make during the winter.

How to Make It

Step 1

Place beef shank into a large saucepan; cover with water to 2 inches above shank. Bring to a boil; cook 1 hour or until beef is tender. Cool slightly; remove beef, discarding bone. Cut beef into large pieces; set aside.

Step 2

While beef shank is cooking, combine 12 cups water and next 7 ingredients (water through bouillon cubes) in a large Dutch oven. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer 30 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender. Ladle soup into large bowls, and top with beef. Serve with lime and cilantro.
