Caldo de Res from Pitic
91: Caldo de Res from Pitic
Sometimes steaming hot soup is exactly what you need to warm the marrow of your bones, even if the median temperature outside is probably hovering around the same temp as your beefy, broth bowl. Bonus! When your head is pounding and you're paying for too much tequila the night prior, caldo de res may be an even better hangover remedy than the more dubious, offal-chock menudo.
The broth-based caldo de res was packed with huge chunks of beefy rib meat and coarse-cut veggies, like cabbage, onions, potatoes, carrots, squash and chunks of corn on the cob. At Pitic, this steaming hot bowl of caldo is served with a pile of rice, your choice of tortilla, and salsa on the side. Make sure you have a fork and knife at the ready, because this soup is a hopped up, chunky monkey version of yo mamma's bite-size beef soup.
