This recipe was very authentic and very close to what we were used to eating when we lived in Russia. My kids who were born in Russia and grew up eating Russian foods love this, but it might not go over so well with American kids. We love this, and I make it with all kinds of cooked meat in the traditional Russian fashion, in Russia Solianka is the "clean out your fridge" soup.
Not tasty enough for me for all the unhealthy ingredients.
I didn't even read the directions, I just checked out the ingredients. They are too many!=)) But, I don't think they'd bother. Why you called Solianka "Beef Soup"?=) It's not! I would call it "Smoked Meat Sour Soup"! That would be the rightest name!=)) Anyway, sounds good! This is one of my favorite soups in my country (Russia). The original way is: stock based on a pickles brine, there are ham, sausages, bacon, kelbasa, some beef, lemons, olives (black and green), tomato pure, onions, celery.....what else?.........parsley, cilantro......oooohhh!!!!!!!!!!!!! pickles, diced..capers??? you can add but the original recipe comes with pickles, so...thanks! I rated this recipe with "five stars"!!!!
This soup was really good! I served it at a dinner party with a Russian theme and it was a big hit. It makes a very hearty main course. The only recommendation I have is to rehydrate the mushrooms and let the sand settle. Also, you may want to double the recipe and freeze some for future meals!!!
I signed up just so I could review this recipe. I made the soup yesterday and my husband said it's the best I've ever made! I used half the amount of butter and tomatoes (personal preference). I will be making this soup quite often, thank you for sharing!
This recipe is an excellent one. Sour, salty, and savoury.
I was a little aprehensive about the ingredients, but as it cooked it smelled amazing. I did have to substitute alternate items for the veal (thin sliced beef) and marinated mushrooms (regular raw mushrooms) and used dried dill weed instead of fresh because I couldn't find it. This was for a dinner party and everyone loved it. I got multiple comments on how tasty it was. I served it with Russian black bread and a basic side salad and it was perfect. Everyone should try this. It does indicate that it feeds 6, but I could easily have fed 12 people with the soup, salad and bread. Everyone should try this because the flavor is not what you would expect given the ingredients.
I was intrigued by this list of ingredients, and made the recipe exactly as written. It was sublime! I dream about this soup! Thanks, Karena!
