Solyanka is a traditional Russian and Ukrainian dish. There are many variants how to cook it, but all in all it is a soup with meat, fish or mushroom broth and various spices. Solyanka usually has sour-salty-spicy base due to the addition of such components as pickles, olives, capers, lemons and sour cream. We will cook the meat solyanka with mushrooms.

  • Serves: 4-6 Servings
  • Prep: 5 mins
  • Cook: 20 mins
  • Ready In: 1 hr 30 mins



  1. First of all cut the smoked foods, mushrooms, carrots and onions. Also clean the potatoes and cut into cubes.
  2. Put the smoked foods into a pan and fry until they begin to brown.
  3. Add the mushrooms, onions and carrots. Stir and cook until they are brown.
  4. Add the tomato paste and stew for 3-5 minutes. At this time, cut the pickles.
  5. Add the pickles and fill one and one half liter of water. Cover with a lid, bring to boiling and cook on a moderate heat for about an hour.
  6. After that you can then add the greens and leave for 5 minutes.
  7. Serve with a slice of lemon, a few olives and sour cream in each serving.
  8. p.s. If you have a pressure cooker, prepare solyanka soup the same way, but under pressure, the soup will be even more delicious.
