Ingredients

How to make it

  • Boil carcass in 4 qts. water for 1 hour.
  • Remove carcass from broth, and reserve 3 qts. of broth for soup.
  • Take meat off the bones and reserve.
  • Melt butter in your soup pot, add onion and celery, cook until veggies are tender.
  • Add flour to butter and veggies; blend well, then add 1 qt. reserved stock and cook until thick.
  • Add remainder of stock, the parboiled carrots, half and half, meat, and rice.
  • Simmer for 30 to 35 min. until rice is soft.
  • The original recipe called for the carrots to be sauteed with other veggies, but they weren't soft enough for me.
  • Also, it called for 1 c. regular rice, but I found it wanted to stick to the bottom of the pot. The instant works perfectly.
  • I add extra meat to mine as well, to equal about 2 1/2 cups.
