Black Bean & Smoked Chicken Soup


Yield: 4 Servings

1/2 c Dried black beans
2 c Water
1 Bay leaf
Light vegetable oil cooking spray
1/2 c Peeled and chopped broccoli stems
1/2 c Scraped & cubed carrot (1 medium carrot)
1 c Scraped & cubed celery (2 med. stalks)
1 c Chopped onion (1 medium)
1 tb Dried thyme
1 tb Dried basil
1/2 c Dry white wine
8 oz Boneless skinless chicken breast
4 tb Barbecue sauce (no oil type)
1 c Chicken stock, fat skimmed
12 oz Evaporated skim milk
2 c Broccoli florets
1 tb Cornstarch dissolved in 2 tb cold water
1 tb Liquid smoke
1 tb Worcestershire sauce
1 ts Tabasco sauce
1/4 c Chopped fresh cilantro

Pick over and rinse the beans. Put them into a large bowl and cover completely with cold water. Let the beans soak overnight (or for at least 8 hours).
Drain the beans and transfer them to a medium saucepan. Add the 2 cups water and the bay leaf. Bring to a boil over medium heat and cook for 15 minutes. Reduce the heat to low and simmer, uncovered, for about 20 minutes, until the beans are tender. Drain the beans and discard the bay leaf.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Place a heavy stockpot over medium heat for about 1 minute, then spray it twice with the vegetable oil. Add the broccoli stems, carrot, celery, and onion. Cover, reduce the heat to low, and cook for 5 minutes, stirring once or twice. Stir in the thyme, basil, and wine. Simmer, uncovered, for about 15 minutes, until the wine has been reduced by half.
In the meantime, coat the chicken thoroughly with the barbecue sauce and bake for 10 minutes on the top shelf of the oven. Remove the chicken from the oven and allow it to cool just long enough to handle. Cut the chicken into small cubes.
Add the chicken, chicken stock, and beans to the stockpot. Cook over low heat for about 3 minutes, until thoroughly heated. Stir in the evaporated milk and the broccoli florets. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring if needed to keep the soup from coming to a boil. Add the dissolved cornstarch and cook for 2 minutes more, stirring constantly. Stir in the liquid smoke, Worcestershire sauce, and Tabasco sauce.
Garnish with chopped cilantro.

Thanks so much Anicha - they look delicious!!

I guess I should've said that I'm looking for the old traditional "boerekos" recipe, where they cook some mutton with it. Do you know what I'm talking about?

Yes please, that's actually what I meant! DH has been nagging me for ages now to make it & I'm always finding some sort of excuse, because I didn't want to admit that I actually don't know how to make it.

I do love some of Anicha's recipes though. I think these things will make great food for Reuben, especially as it's cooked quite soft.

Ok it is real easy, if u have a slow cooker it is even beta!
I use lamb neck as that is the best meat in a bredie, u can also make a tomato bredie, it is very similar.

Ingredients:
Lamb neck ( as many pieces as u want 2 prepare 4 supper, I always do more cause it is very nice the next day. - 4 this recipe I will use 6-8pieces.)
tin of green beans (I take the french cut)
cup of fresh beans
Onion
Clove of garlic
3 Potatoes

Method:
Fry onions and garlic, remove from pan.
Brown meat in pan (don't cook just quickly brown on very high heat)
Add onions & meat to a slow cooker or steam pot, or a nice caserole dish that is oven proof.
Put the potatoes on top of the meat (cut up into pieces)
Put the beans and half of the juice(canned beans) on top of potatoes.
2 cups of water. or till the wayter covers the potatoes halfway, it does not have to be covered completely, just enough to cook in and make a sauce.
Salt & Pepper

Let it cook gently until soft - 30 min before serving take out the meat and most of the potatoes and some of the beans, thicken sauce with a bit of maizena and mash the remaining potatoes and beans with masher, just roughly just to give the sauce a nice texture. Add the meat and the potatoes and beans and simmer 30min. Serve with nice basmati rice.

Slow Coooker - 8 hours
Steam pot - dunno till meat is soft.
caserole pot - 2-3 hours on 150 oven!

I normaly just put everything in slowcooker and dont even bother frying onions and garlic or brown meat.

This is real boere kos!

Liesl, what's the "french cut" of the tin of green beans? My dh hates "bredies", but I just love them, and my mom used to make the best green bean potjie with lambs neck as well!

Oh, and if you put it in the oven, do you cover it with foil?

Es, when u buy the beans in the tins there is differnt cuts, the french just looks nicer, makes no diff.

DH is not keen on bredies, the first time I made it did not thicken sauce, and it was not so nice, so the second time I put some effort in the sauce and Tinus loved it, he requested the dish the other week.
yes u need to cover the dish in the oven, with foil or caserole lid.

OK, thanx. MIL isn't great on "bredies" that's probably why they don't like it as much. My mom used to make lots of stews, so I love all forms of it. W prefers his food "seperate"... :lol1:
