Russian Sauerkraut Soup With Ham

Cook Time: 60
Servings: 8


3 quarters of filtered water
1 pound pork ham
4 potatoes
1/2 cup rise
1 onion
1 carrot
1 bell pepper
2 cup of sauerkraut
1 tb spoon salt
1/2 table spoon sugar
1/2 cup chopped parsley

I’ve used a homemade sauerkraut and pork ham for this recipe. But the sauerkraut bought at supermarket can substitute very well.

In 3 quarters of filtered water cook ham with half of onion, 2 sticks of salary, 1 carrot and bay leaf, for about 40 minutes, or until meet will separate well from bones.

Take the vegetables out from the broth.

Add potato and bring it to a boil then lower heet.

Add rice, salt and ground pepper.

Rinse the sauerkraut before adding to the pot.  Cook all together for about 30-40 minutes or until sauerkraut, rise and potato are tender.

Meanwhile cook onion, bell pepper and garlic in a skillet with 3 table spoons of oil.

Add vegetables to the soup. If  soup is still taste little sour, add a tiny-bit of sugar and stir.


Serve with fresh parsley and sour cream.
