If you really want to surprise your beautiful Russian woman when you go to visit her, you should tell her that while you are there, you would like to try cooking her a traditional Russian meal. Although some Russian food can be difficult to cook, there are also many easy recipes to choose from. And preparing a great traditional meal by candlelight just may be the way to make sure that you keep the key to her heart!

 

 

Solyanka Soup

Soup is usually the first thing served at a meal. Russian soups used to be referred to as Khlebovo or Pokhlyobka, both of which means soup with cereals.

 

Solyanka Soup is a type of Russian soup that is made with vegetables, pickles, cucumbers, meats and olives.  To make this soup, you are going to want to first cut up your onions into very small pieces. Make sure that your onions cook until they are soft in the pan. Cut up a few cucumbers and simply throw them in. After you are done with that, make sure that you pour in 4 pints or 2 liters of broth. Then add a few tablespoons of tomato paste. Next, boil your soup for 5-7 minutes. Then make sure to add your beef cubes. You can pick from veal, beef or ham. To make it extra tasty, you may want to use all three. But be sure that you use only 5 tablespoons of each type of beef.  You will now need to boil your soup again. Lastly, add the olives. You might also want to add a few capers. You can even add a ½, or a little more than a ½ tablespoon of sugar. Cook and serve hot!

 

Don't Forget the Bread

Make sure that you don’t forget to serve the bread with your meal. This is important, since bread is considered to be the national food in Russia. In fact, Russian tradition states that it is appropriate to greet guests with salt and bread.

 

A popular bread dish that you may want to try cooking is Classic Pancakes. This dish is sometimes also called Blini. First, you will need to pour 2 cups of milk in a pan. Turn the stove up between 30 °-35°. Break up 1/3 ounces of yeast into your dish. Next, you will want to put in 2 eggs, a sprinkle of salt, 1/3 ounce of sugar and just a little bit more melted butter. Be sure to mix everything well, and set your dish in a warm place for at least 2 hours. As soon as the dough rises, be sure to add the rest of the flour. 

 

Your dish will soon be ready to bake. First, spread the bottom of a pan with butter, pour in your batter and make sure it is even on the bottom of your pan. When you can see that one side is done, bake it on the other side as well. Often times Russians serve their pancakes with sour cream and or melted butter. A lot of Russian people also enjoy the sweet taste of pancakes. To make the pancakes sweet, add your choice of jam.

 

The Main Course

First, you will need to cut up 1.5 lbs. of beef filet. Make sure that the pieces are thick. Next, cut up and brown your onions. Then put your onions in a large pan. Brown your meet in a separate pan, while also adding 2 tablespoons of flour. You can now combine all of your ingredients into one pan. Add 1 ounce of tomato paste. Sprinkle a bit of salt and pepper. Add ½ cup of sour cream. Bring to a boil, and make sure that you have your stove set on low heat. Serve hot!

 

Be Sure to Toast

Be sure to toast your love with champagne. A good choice is Sovietskoe Champanskoe, because it is known for being good and is not too expensive.
