This Polish soup is made by cooking potatoes, mixed vegetables and dill pickles in a homemade beef stock. It's tangy, light and refreshing. Serve with a hunk of crusty bread.
Beef neck bones may be special ordered from your local butchers. The neck bones are to make a beef stock. You can use ready made beef stock, if you prefer.
Our favourite Polish restaurant serves pickle soup and we hoped this would be similar. WOOHOO! It was almost identical. I had homemade beef broth in the freezer so started with that and cooked diced carrots and pickles in it for 45 minutes, then added the potatoes, cooked till soft before adding the flour/milk. Yum-yum-yummy! My parents, who are not Polish loved it so much they took the leftovers home with them. I will be making this a lot! - 31 Oct 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
awesome! I used ground beef with fried mushrooms and onions. I also added some of the dill pickle juice to the soup and added whipping cream instead of flour and milk. - 17 Dec 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
