Recipe for soup-hodgepodge of the national team (with photo):
First you need to cook meat broth.
We lay beef or pork, as these types of meat are cooked longer. After about half an hour, you can send the chicken into the broth, removing the skin from it. Given the fact that smoked ribs are ready to eat, we send them to the broth as a last resort.
We remove the finished meat from the broth, remove the bones, divide the pulp into small pieces and return it to the broth, which is not filtered for the hodgepodge.
Potatoes are an optional ingredient in the hodgepodge; whether to put it or not is a matter of taste.
Cucumbers for the hodgepodge use only salted. Marinated for this dish is undesirable. We cut them with oblong stones.
Fry in vegetable oil, then dip in meat broth.
We cook the frying as well as for the borsch: fry the onions until golden. Add grated carrot to it and fry until softened. If you wish, you can add Bulgarian pepper.
Put the tomato sauce to the onions and carrots, add a few spoons of broth and stew.
Then we refill the ready soup.
Grind ham into cubes.
Cut the sausage into cubes.
Meat components and olives are laid in the boiling soup at the final stage of its preparation, boiling and letting the soup infuse under the closed lid.
You need to serve the solyanka with parsley. Dressed with sour cream soup. For spice and piquancy we put a lemon ring.
