Herbed Kale & Potato Soup With Beef Ribbons

Ready in 45 minutes

This hearty greens and roots soup is inspired by a classic Portuguese dish called caldo verde (green broth). We've axed the traditional fatty linguica sausage yet managed to keep the savory floavor intact by opting for thinly-cut ribbons of sirloin beef, seasoned to perfection with dried herbs and fresh garlic.
