Step by step method

  • Step 1

    First of all, you need to cook the broth. To do this, take beef on the bone, cook for 2-2.5 hours. We take out the meat and strain the broth. We separate the pulp from the bone, cut into any pieces, send it back to the pan.

  • Step 2

    Fry the onion, garlic and cilantro stalks with tomato paste. Fry over low heat, the onion should not change color, only become transparent.

  • Step 3

    Add the roast to the saucepan.

  • Step 4

    We measure out 0.5 cups of rice (take long-grained, which does not turn into porridge, it turns out crumbly), pour the cereal into the soup.

  • Step 5

    Salt kharcho, add black and red peppers, cloves, coriander, basil, ground walnuts.

  • Step 6

    We chop all the parsley and the top of the cilantro, throw it into the soup, cook over low heat for 10 minutes.

  • Step 7

    Rice should not be ready, rather al dente, it will still reach the desired state.

  • Step 8

    Serve kharcho hot in a bowl for first courses, garnished with greenery.

Tips & variations

  • It is necessary to cook soup only on beef broth.

  • Be sure to add grated walnuts, which will give it a spicy bitterness.

  • Garlic, cilantro and suneli hops will give the soup a sharpness and a unique taste.

  • Use meat on the bone, beef ribs, for rich broth. If the soup is too thick, add a little boiling water. A little tkemali will improve the taste.

  • Before you cook the broth, you can lightly fry the meat. This will give kharcho a special flavor.
