Ready-made fast meat hodgepodge

Solyanka is a traditional soup of Russian national cuisine with a masculine character. You can cook ancient food, which in ancient times was considered a truly rural dish, in a variety of ways. Of the huge number of her recipes, one does not exist. Today I propose to make an especially simple version of meat hodgepodge, which is prepared easily and quickly, while the result is unmatched! This rich soup is ideal for family meals at home. It saturates for a long time, attracts with an appetizing aroma and has excellent taste.

If you want to make a real "rich" hodgepodge, then pre-cook the meat broth from beef, veal, pork or from several types of meat, and also do not put potatoes in the soup. However, according to the proposed recipe, the soup is no less tasty and satisfying. The sour-salty taste of pickles and tomato paste gives piquancy to the first course. You can enhance its shade by adding a slice of lemon and a couple of olives to the plate. Several sprigs of basil will add additional aroma and delicate taste to the dish.
