Years and years ago when I spent my first christmas with my girlfriends parents, (her father is hungarian, her mother is slovak, she herself was born in bratislava slovakia,) her dad made sauerkraut soup.

I was dubious at first, but I'm ALWAYS game to try new ethnic food, and after a healthy dollop of sour cream, I dove in and fell in love with slovak/eastern european food with the first bite.

What follows is a quick guide on how to make slovak sour kraut soup. if you have never had it, you are in for a treat.

Odd but I can only see the introduction. Is there more that got removed or is it a pictorial only?
<p>three clicks total on the pictures gets you to the instructions</p>
<p>you have to click on the picture again after it comes up in the slide show. The directions are still there.</p>
It seems as though my picture comments have been removed. Odd. i'll see about fixing it.
Thanks, the soup looks awesome, I was so disappointed when I couldn't find any instructions.
Where is the recipe? How much stock and when do you add sauerkraut. The pictures don't tell me anything. Please...I want to make this on Sunday. <br>
Kate711 - for some reason, when I wrote this, the instructions appeared on the pictures themselves. Click the little 'i' on the pictures and it will show my comments. You'll need about 2 quarts chicken stock!
Hi. I'm from Slovakia and it is Kapustova polievka or Kapustnica no kapusta polievka.It is most delicious &gt;D.
Im slovak too. Je fajn ze tuto super str&aacute;nku navštevuj&uacute; aj slov&aacute;ci.
I like that aswel :D
I'm 100% polish, but raised mostly in the USA. I'v never made this soup before and would love to try my hand at it. What are the herbs in the picture, I can't make them out. Is one of them thyme? What is the other?
The herbs I used are Thyme, Marjoram, garlic, white onion, salt, celery, carrot, and caraway seed :)
Great! Only two ortographic commets: &quot;kapusta polievka&quot; -&gt; &quot;Kapustova polievka&quot;, kliebasa -&gt;klobasa :)<br><br>I'm a Slovak, currently living in Brazil... Thanks for remebering me the Christmas time :D
im 1/3rd hungarian 1/3rd english and 1/3 slovak!

Who need the SOUP PART :) just eat the yummy meat.
what brand/model knife is that?
The knife shown is a Friedrick Dick. (F. dick or Friedr. Dick) It's a great medium weight all purpose chef's knife that will run you about $150.oo
My husband is part Slovak and introduced me to this soup - we've loved it for years! Luckily, we have a local Polish deli and can buy something very similar, the only noticeable difference is a little dill. I believe they call it Kapusniak (spelling is probably wrong) but they smile politely and accept the English translation of 'cabbage soup'. I can't wait to surprise my husband with a homemade batch - thanks!
It's cooking on the stove as I am writing this, thank you for this instructable!<br>Luckily I have a great Polish butcher around the corner so I had no trouble finding the sausage and the smoked ribs. \o/
And if you have interest I can write instructables with lesson of Slovak langaue.(Excuze me I must go learn English).
Really good instruction!<br> <a href="http://download-skype.ru">Download Skype</a><br>
This is a GREAT Instructable. Thanks for putting it together. My parents were Hungarian, and although my mother cooked lots of Hungarian foods, she never made this soup. Not even once! I first had it at a restaurant, and thought it was the most delicious soup that I ever had. I've been looking for a good recipe ever since. FYI, for those who live in places where you can't easily get good, smoked sausages (like where I live, for example), I've had great success using mail order. My usual source is www.eurofoodmart.com. (I have no affiliation with that site.)
