Russian Hot and Sour Soup with Different Kinds of Meat – Solyanka Myasnaya

Make ham or beef broth or use ready-made or bought. Do not use cubes, please. Cool it, take out all fat. Take 3 cups, bring to boil.

In large soup pot heat oil (or just spray pot with cooking spray), add onion and sauté about 5 minutes until gold, add julienne sliced pickles and cook 3-4 minutes more, add tomato and cook one minute, deglaze with 1 cup of broth, add all meat in one time and 2 cups of broth. Bring to boil, lower heat and cook about 25 minutes, until done. Taste for seasoning, add salt if needed and black pepper. Add capers and brine if used.

Serve hot with 2 lemon slice and olives. Add 1-2 tbsp. sour cream to each plate.

1 serving without sour cream is about 167 calories
