“This is my absolute favorite soup or stew ever! I got this recipe from my aunt and it is very simple. It is also very flexible, so some of the ingredients are often altered by preference and don't have a precise measurement. Some even add small potatoes to it. It is delicious with crispy bread dipped into it. *Note that seasoning measurements will most likely be changed to your preference- taste as you go!*”

  4. Pour in the tomato sauce, the red wine vinegar, the red wine, and the water.
