If you read the article, the previous day’s broth becomes the base for the day’s soup. You won’t find 50-year-old meat in there.
Soup of Thesius?
…and it’s STILL not done! Is it soup yet?
Sound like the crap they say about tootsie rolls – a bit of the previous batch is in the next batch so ‘technically’ it contains a bit of the very first batch.
45 year old Soup
LEFTOVERS ARE ALWAYS BETTER THE next day. Or, in the case of Bangkok restaurant Wattana Panich, the next generation.
The giant pot of neua tune, a beef stew popular in the Thai capital, has been simmering since owner Nattapong Kaweenuntawong was a child, more than 45 years ago. Growing up studying the exact flavor profile of the stew from his father, Kaweenuntawong now balances the flavor himself daily. He employs an ancient practice called Hunter’s Stew or Perpetual Stew, using some of the previous day’s leftover broth to start the base of the following day’s soup. “We keep tasting. There is no recipe,” he told Channel News Asia.
A secret blend of spices and herbs, stewed beef, raw beef slices, meatballs, tripe, and other organs swim about the deeply bubbling vat. While new restaurants and high-end condominiums now dwarf the humble one-story bistro in Bangkok’s busy Ekamai neighborhood, the complex and rich flavor of Wattana Panich’s headline soup keeps the dish relevant and its followers loyal.
Delicious perpetual stew
Some say that chef keeps stirring in his sleep
There was a Perrault soup that went from the 15th century to the Second World War.
Servsafe told me no
Can confirm it’s delicious stew
Anyone else thinking Trigger’s Broom? https://youtu.be/LAh8HryVaeY
Hey, I worked for Subway too!
I bet it’s spoiled.
Not sure this is healthy and clean
Hey after the meal you can walk down to cabbages and condoms for some late night fun.
We kind of do this with our french onion soup. Always a few cups extra that gets frozen to start the next batch with. Been going ~10 years so far.
You can never eat the same bowl of soup twice.
Not quite the same but I know some people who do Maori boil up with watercress bacon/pork bones and they’ll keep their broth for ages and won’t keep it hot between meals.
If you do the math, there’s an entirely new pot of soup after a short time. I think it”d be like 20 something times if you replace half. Not too sure.
real Soup of Theseus here
