  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, combine Italian sausage and garlic. Cook, stirring frequently until sausage is evenly browned. Drain cooked sausage in a strainer to remove grease.
  2. In a large Dutch oven or stock pot, combine the beef broth, hominy, stewed tomatoes, carrots, beans, and zucchini. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, and boil for 2 minutes. Reduce heat to low, and add sausage and cilantro; simmer for 15 minutes, or until carrots and zucchini are tender. Season with salt and pepper.

Very yummy. I used different beans and chick peas instead of hominy (didn't have any) but I'm sure it didn't make a bit of difference. We loved it. I used one pound of sausage instead of two and...

As far as I am concerned, cilatro tastes like bar soap. This soup works great with ¼-½ cup of just regular, normal parsley. A bottle of dark beer makes it even better (in the soup, that is).

Excellent very meaty soup, but you gotta like cilantro. I cut back a little the first time and will only put about half of what the recipe calls for next time.

Fabulous, hearty fare! I made a few changes: No hominy, extra can of Northern beans, 1/4 cup chopped cilantro, and a combo of hot and mild italian (turkey) sausage (total weight 1.5 lbs). (I ...

I love cilantro so I was anxious to try this. This is very meaty - next time I'll reduce the Italian sausage to 1 1/2 lbs. I don't like my dishes too spicy so I used regular (not hot) Italian s...
