Cooking green cabbage soup with sorrel:

Step 1: Cook the meat broth.

I’m used to cooking pork broth, but if you want a more tender soup, cook it from chicken. So, we take a piece of pork, wash it well under cold running water and send it to boil in a saucepan over medium heat. As soon as the water boils, remove the noise and reduce the fire. Cook under the lid for 30 minutes.

Step 2: Cut the vegetables.

At this time, peel the potatoes, wash them and cut them into medium cubes (about 3x3 cm). Onions and carrots are peeled, then onions - finely chopped, and carrots - finely three. We sort the sorrel, cut the cuttings and chop coarsely. Parsley and onion are finely chopped.

Step 3: Cook the green cabbage soup with sorrel.

Put boiling potatoes in a boiling broth (about 15 minutes) At this time, put on a medium heat to heat the pan, and lay out a piece of butter. Once it melts, add the coarsely chopped sorrel and leave to simmer over low heat for 5 minutes, while constantly stirring. Nearby we put another pan to warm up, pour a little vegetable oil. And spread the onion to fry. Once it becomes transparent, add the carrots, mix and lightly fry (no more than 3 minutes) When the potatoes become a little soft, put the sorrel and frying in the broth, add salt to taste, add a couple of leaves of laurel and cook for 10-15 minutes. At the end, add greens, cover and let stand 5 minutes.

Step 4: Serve the green cabbage soup with sorrel.

Cabbage soup is usually served with sour cream and a boiled egg, which is divided in half. Enjoy your meal!
