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! Read More

I made this soup based on the ratings...for a 5-star recipe, I was very disappointed. The soup was exceptionally bland, and needed a lot of salt and pepper. It might be better if some beef broth or granules were added. For lack of a better word, it just tasted strange. I will definitely not make this again. Read More

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. Read More

Very easy and quick to make. I added one thing mostly because it's a main way I make soups. While boiling a large pot of water I fried on med-heat 1 chopped onion and 2 chopped celery stalks until opaque (not browned). I added this mixture to the pot along with the diced carrots (I did not do mixed vegetables just carrots). Of course pickle juice was added and when the soup was completely finished I stirred in a little bit of fresh chopped parsley. Excellent soup!! Read More

This was a GREAT recipe! I folllowed the recipe as written except used 1/2 water and 1/2 beef boullion my wife loved it! To make it a little more interesting I added mini meatballs made as follows. 1 lb 8% fat ground beef 1 egg 1/4 cup bread crumbs 1/4 cup mustard 1 medium onion diced mixed ingredients and made mini meatballs which I cooked in a little beeft broth then drained and browned. I placed 5-7 meatballs in each bowl and we LOVED it. It really gave the flavor of a great hamburger with mustard and onion surrounded by the great dill pickle taste...we will definitely do this one again. Read More

Am making this for New Year's Eve dinner tomorrow and we are having company:) I'm brave. I've used chopped cabbage and a diced carrot for vegetables. I increased the water by 2 cups and the pickles to 3 cups over all. I also used a cup of pickle juice. Once its cooled I'll stir in lite sour cream instead of flour and milk. Its summer here in New Zealand and its going to be warm tomorrow so I thought a cold soup would be a nice starter. I'm also making Polish lasagna cabbage stew in my crockpot and Polish desserts. Should be good. It already tastes good hot:) Read More
