Rassolnik is a strange and classic soup made with barley, beef, pow-taters, carrots, and… pickles? You mean cucumbers, right? Nope, pickles as in dill pickles in a jar. That’s right! It’s hearty and the beef is tender and satisfying. It’s strangely good with the pickles. Did you know Rassolnik has existed for more than 500 years? This pickle soup is definitely a comfort food to many Russians.
