June Meyer's Authentic Hungarian
Beef Soup
(Marha husleves)

This is a traditional winter soup. It is served in three courses. First the broth is served with fine or broad egg noodles. Then the meat and vegetables are served along with a cold sourcream and horse-radish sauce. This is a slow cooking soup, that tastes wonderful. It is worth the time it takes. It makes a cold winter day cosy. This serves a family.

Regards, June Meyer.
