Meat Soup With Tomatoes, Onions And Cucumbers
(Miasnaia Solianka)
What You Need:
  • 6 cups beef stock, fresh or canned
  • ¾ pound beef, preferably lean brisket, rump or bottom round, cut into ½ -inch cubes
  • ½ pound boneless shoulder of veal, trimmed of fat and cut into ½ - inch cubes
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cups thinly sliced onions
  • 2 medium cucumbers, peeled, halved, seeded and cut into ¼ - inch slices
  • 2 large tomatoes, peeled, seeded and coarsel y chopped
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 ounces boiled ham, sliced ½ inch thick
  • 3 all-beef frankfurters, sliced into ½ - inch rounds
  • 12 black pitted olives
  • 1 lemon, thinly sliced

  • How To Cook:
    1. In a heavy, 4- to 6-quart casserole, combine the beef stock, beef and veal. Bring to a boil over high heat, skimming the top of the foam and scum as they rise to the surface.

    2. Then partially cover the casserole, reduce the heat to moderate and simmer for about 1½ hours, or until the meat is tender enough to be easily pierced with a fork.

    3. Meanwhile, melt 4 tablespoons of butter in a heavy, 10-to 12-inch skillet over high heat. Add the onions, reduce the heat to moderate and cook 3 to 5 minutes, or until the onions are soft but not brown.

    4. Drop in the cucumbers and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 10 minutes, or until they are tender but still slightly firm.

    5. Then stir in the chopped tomatoes and cook an additional 10 minutes. Season with the salt and a few grindings of black pepper, and transfer the contents of the skillet to the casserole. Add the ham and frankfurters and simmer 5 minutes, or until the meats are heated through.

    6. Drop the olives into a saucepan of boiling water and boil briskly for 2 minutes. Drain and add them to the soup. Taste for seasoning, pour into a large heated tureen, and float the lemon slices on top. Serve at once.
