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.

Welcome To My Blog!

Hi, my name is Olga.  I would like to welcome you to my site.

I created it first of all, to save my family’s recipes and then to share them with my friends and those who have tasted some Russian/Ukrainian food and liked it. But I also would like to introduce it to those who haven’t yet, but would like to.

I will try to keep my recipes simple, but there are few that might require more prep time or ingredients for preparation. You will also find some of my family’s favorite American recipes here and other international cuisines.

I thank you for visiting my site. I hope you will fall in love with Russian/Ukrainian food and will come back again.
