 A bowl of soup kharcho

Kharcho is a beef rice soup. There are many variations from family to family, but this is how I was taught to make it.It’s just a simple homemade soup made out of basic ingredients that people usually have on hand. Even though it is a simple soup, it’s still packed with flavor and nutrition. I like using a soft meat like filet mignon for it which turns out very soft.

ingredients:

  • 6 cups water

  • 1 pound of filet mignon beef, 1″ cubed

  • 1 Tablespoon salt + more to taste

  • 1/2 cup of rice

  • 3-4 potatoes, cubed

  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 Tablespoon of tomato paste

  • 1 clove of garlic, minced

  • 1 onion, chopped

  • Handful of chopped parsley, chopped

  • pepper to taste

instructions:

  1. Fill up a medium size pot with 6 cups of water.

  2. Place cubed beef in the pot, and a Tablespoon of salt. Boil Cook for 1 hour on low-medium heat.

  3. Take meat out.

  4. To the pot add potatoes and rice. Cook till potatoes are soft.

  5. In a skillet, heat up 2 Tablespoons olive oil and add in onion. Sauté till onion is almost transparent.

  6. Add cooked meat to the onions. Sauté for a minute.

  7. Add in garlic and stir in a tablespoon of tomato paste. Sauté all for two minutes. Add to the pot.

  8. Bring everything to a boil.

  9. Add pepper to taste.

  10. Sprinkle with parsley.
