The method of preparation of solyanka with potatoes and barley
We start by frying the meat. Pork cut into small pieces. To get delicious, take meat with thin layers of fat, for example, brisket.
In a pot with a thick bottom, pour the sunflower oil. Throw the chopped meat into the heated oil and fry the slices until golden brown.
Not one hodgepodge can do without onions! Cut the onion, add to the pan to the browned pork.
On a rather high fire, fry the onion with meat, it is necessary that it first becomes transparent, then slightly caramelized.
Next, add the chopped fresh carrots. There will be a lot of oil and fat in the pan, which is melted from the meat during the roasting process, the carrot will absorb it, it will gradually become soft, slightly browned.
For aroma, we put in a hodgepodge with potatoes and pearl barley sweet, canned in tomato sauce, red pepper along with the sauce in which it was stored. If you do not have such preparations, then you can take tomato puree and fresh bell pepper.
Pre-soak barley in cold water. We change the water several times, then transfer the groats to a colander and rinse under the tap. We put washed barley and dried carrots in a pan. Dried carrots add sweetness to the dish.
Pour 2.5 liters of boiling water into the pan, throw seasonings - a few bay leaves, peas of black pepper, ground red pepper. Bring to a boil. Close the pan with a lid and cook over low heat for about 1 hour.
Cut into strips peeled fresh potatoes. An hour after the start of cooking, put potatoes in a pot with boiling soup, cook for 15 minutes.
At this stage, add the pickles, bring to a boil again. Then salt the hodgepodge with potatoes and barley to your taste and cook for 5 minutes.
Leave the finished hodgepodge in a closed pan for 15-20 minutes.
Serve on the table a hodgepodge with pearl barley with sour cream and a finely chopped green onion. Enjoy your meal!
