Yield: Serves 6

A stick-to-the-ribs soup for cold-weather appetites. Use beef stock instead of water for a richer broth.


  • 2 cups dry navy beans
  • 2 quarts cold water (less if beans aren’t drained)
  • 1 pound spareribs, broken into separate rib sections
  • 3 onions, peeled and sliced
  • 2 carrots, peeled and sliced
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Soak beans overnight in cold water. (Drain or not, as you prefer.)
Combine beans, water, ribs, onions, and carrots in soup kettle. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer, partially covered, 1 hour or until beans are tender. Remove ribs, cut off bits of meat that remain, and return meat to kettle. Season with salt and pepper. Heat thoroughly.
