    1. Melt the butter in a large stock pot over medium heat; cook the onion, celery and steak in the melted butter until the onions caramelise, 7 to 10 minutes.
    2. Add the beef stock, water, bay leaf, marjoram, oregano and soup bones; lower the heat to medium-low and simmer 3 hours, skimming froth off the top of the soup as it develops.
    3. Add the potato, carrot, pepper, black beans, split peas, rice, macaroni, passata, cabbage and red wine to the stock pot.
    4. Simmer 1 hour more. Remove the soup bones, scraping any meat from them back into the pot. Season with salt and pepper to serve.


    Beef soup or beef stock bones can be purchased from your local butchers. You may need to pre-order them.
