Sop Saudara

Pangkep Beef Soup

I am a bit confuse how to give this soup a name where "saudara" means brotherhood, very odd if I call it brotherhood soup. I prefer Pangkep beef soup since it was invented there in South Sulawesi.

The soup very tasty with a hint of cinnamon, never get the exact recipe but the recipe I made quite close to the taste where I used to buy Sop Saudara in Pangkep. For me the one in Pangkep at jalan Kelapa near the traditional market was the best ever, I tried so many in Makassar even Jakarta but they are not the same like I ever tasted. I like red chilli color in there where I couldn't find it elsewhere. A couple of potato balls fritter to complete the presentation bowl.
My Recipe quite different then others posted on internet.
