Comment: I was given this recipe on a card by a waitress at the Miles City Montana 4Bs restaurant after telling her that I had driven all the way from minnesota for this soup (it’s the closest 4Bs to Minnesota). The recipe was pre-printed on a post card so, I don’t think she was giving away any trade or family secrets. I’ts also on their website www.4bs.com . However, this is very possibly one of the best soups I’ve ever had. Very few even come close.
