Does anyone have a recipe for the Portuguese stew/soup called Soupish? All I remember is alot of beef, simmer for hours and add mint at the end.

Thank you from me as well, Swisskaese! I think I wore out my Google key looking for Soupish! (thought it was something one does in their soup!) :laugh:

I was also thinking the same thing!!! Luckily, I know some Portuguese and figured it out. Sopas is pronounced "Sopash", which I guess sounds a little like Soupish. :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

Aha! I see from my cookery books that it's Sopa do Espírito Santo from the Azores. Which explains why it looks so very unfamiliar!

Actually a lot of the "mystery" Portuguese recipes in North America and Hawaii are from the Azores, so I should have guessed!
