    Bonnie G #2's Note:

    While in Russia my DH and I enjoyed all the different soups we tried there, specially in the cold winter months. One of our favorites was "Meat Solyanka - (salty)" I've been searching for it ever since we returned. I found this one on a Russian site and it comes the closest to what we wanted, though I've changed it quite a bit so it's not really authentic, we like the meat left in ours and a thicker soup than we were served and I also changed it to use my crock pot for ease. I hesitate to make this public as it's not the Beef Stew taste we are used to, but the spices give it a rich, salty, spicy taste and if you're up to trying something a little different you may like this.

      Hi Bonnie, you know how much we like soup, and we liked this one. We thought soup? or stew? it was quite a meal on it's own, I picked this because it was so different, I used beef, ham and sausage. the flavour was amazing, it had a nice sour salty taste sooo good with a chunk of bread that I made from my other baby, this is definitely a soup for cold weather it sure does warm you up. I am so pleased you posted it. First time I had Russian soup/stew. Made for PAC fall 09

      A very good soup!! I loved the flavour of the broth. I'm going to make the authentic version of this next time as I found the chopping of the meat (especially beef) very time consuming and difficult to get small enough.
