Maryland Crab Soup

Behold an amazingly delicious Maryland Crab Soup recipe for those who - gasp - don't live in Maryland. The only ingredient that might pose a problem is Old Bay Seasoning. If your local grocery store doesn't carry it and if you don't feel like making a homemade version, you can always purchase it on-line.

And yes, the husband actually created this recipe himself. It is perfect for sick days, rainy days, snowy days, any days.

Tonggu Daddy's Maryland Crab Soup

serves 10 people who love to eat; otherwise, prepare to freeze some

16 oz. canned vegetable soup
16 oz. canned Manhattan clam chowder
32 oz. water
16 oz. stewed tomatoes
1 bag of frozen mixed vegetables
2 lbs. beef cubes/ stew meat
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
2 shallots, chopped
1 onion, chopped
2 tbsp. Old Bay Seasoning (four tbsp. if you like it spicy)
1 lb. crab meat (from the meat counter that would be 1 claw/leg plus 1 backfin or you can just purchase several cans of crab meat, probably located near the canned tuna)

Combine everything in a large soup pot except for the crab meat. (Don't forget the 32 oz. of water!) Bring the soup to a boil and ensure the beef is fully cooked. Reduce heat, add the crab meat and simmer for 30 minutes. Serve in large bowls with bread.

MMmmm...sounds delicious! Except...shhhh...I don't eat crab. I wonder if I could make it with chicken? I have relatives in Maryland, and they'd string me up and beat me for that comment. Don't tell.

We do have Old Bay, though, it's good for a low country boil.

Oh that sounds so good my mouth is watering! I will have to try that recipe....sounds like it would make enough to feed a small army so I may have to wait until everyon has a raging appetite...maybe after a day of sledding, then we can imagine being as one with the crab (scuttling across the warm sandy beaches)
