My Grandma's Sweet & Sour Soup
    #2184394 - 12/17/03 02:58 AM (10 years, 10 months ago)

This Recipe Is Too Good To Share, But... I Love You Guys, So...

I'm making 5 gallons of soup. I've never made less, but if you want to devide by 5, feel free.

The ingredients: (all shown except Sugar, Salt & Pepper)



10 pounds Flank Steak (or Skirt Steak or a combo)
1 Small & 1 Large Green Cabbage
4 Large Onions
14 Lemons
4 (34oz) Cans Tomatoes (as shown below)
5 pounds white cane sugar
Salt
Black Pepper

First, lay out the meat and cut it into 3/4' wide strips (with the grain) as shown:







Then cut the strips into 1"-2" pieces as shown:



Put it in the pot and cover with water an inch or so over the meat:



Add 1/4 cup salt and simmer for 90 minutes.

Then, open your various canned tomatoes:



Add them to the simmering meat with 2-3 tablespoons of black pepper
and continue simmering while you cut and juice your lemons:





Add 3 + 1/2 Cups Lemon Juice to the pot.

Now cut up your onions as shown:





Add them and give it a stir, continue simmering for 20 minutes and cut up your cabbage as shown:







Add the cabbage to the pot and stir it in. Continue simmering while
you add 4-5 pounds of sugar and stir well.
The balance is crucial, so taste as you go.

Finish simmering until the cabbage is tender and the meat begins to get stringy.



You'll know when it's ready, keep tasing.

Total cooking time: 3.5 hours

Serve and enjoy!

Very nice Mr. Tripmeister.

Looks like you have enough in the pot to serve an army batallion!

How did it taste?

The last two photos have my mouth watering and it's only 9 in the morning.

That's a very good question!

I believe it's originally polish. I could be wrong, though.

4 to 5 pounds in 5 gallons of soup with 3.5 cups of fresh lemon juice, mad???

No, not "a mad amount", just right. Try a 1/5th batch and see.

I've never noticed this recipe before, but this actually sounds really delicious and simple, I may have to try this, this weekend. I love sweet/sour soups, have you ever made it spicy at all?

Accidentally put in too much black pepper once...  Not a good idea.

Nah, I wouldn't do barley in this soup.  You want a watery quality to this.  Barley will absorb too much liquid.

I'll have to post my beef + barley soup recipe! :smile:

I almost always cook my barley separately in salted water, then add it to the main soup, in order to prevent it from absorbing the soup liquids.

That kinda defeats the purpose of having barley in the soup. Who needs barley-flavored barley? Yuck!

Now that winter's here and therefore soup weather, try this soup without modification, then if you find it lacking heartiness, experiment.

Meanwhile, I'll get going on "My Mom's Beef & Barley Soup" - That's a real hearty one! Nothing beats marrow-filled bones! YUM! :awebig:
