Bidos are the Sami national law. It tastes great and we often use it as a Sunday dinner. This portion is suitable for 4, but I often make a double portion, so we have leftover dinner on Monday. If you do not get reindeer marrow bones, you can use beef or game fund marrow bones, which you taste at the end of the cooking time. It will not be quite the same, but still tastes beautiful.
500 g reindeer meat
300 g marginal bone of reindeer
1.2 l sell
1 onion in strips
3 diced carrots
10 diced potatoes
1 diced turnip
1/2 leek in strips
1 broom fresh thyme
1 bay leaf
1/2 teaspoon grated nutmeg
Salt and pepper
Saute the onion in a little oil or butter until it becomes shiny and soft in a large saucepan.
Put in reindeer carcass and marrow bones, pour over water and bring to a boil along with bay leaf and thyme sprig. Skim off (remove the turbidity that settles on top with a tablespoon) and let the pot soak over low heat until the meat is tender, about 1 hour.
Add potatoes, leeks, carrot, turnip and grated nutmeg. Cook the soup until the vegetables are tender. Season with salt and pepper and serve bidos with good bread or flatbread.
