Lamb soup is definitely at the top of soup recipes at Easter in Hungary. Everyone loves this soup, so most families cook vegetable lamb soup for the Easter table.
The soup is so popular that it’s prepared during the whole spring. There are more recipes available and one that I like most is the version with flour dumplings.
There are not many cooking tips to share regarding this Hungarian soup recipe. Maybe the most important one is to remove the large parts of fat from lamb, otherwise, the soup will have a fatty, unpleasant taste.
Another advice is to cut meat into smaller pieces. This will reduce cooking time and will ease soup serving into the plate.
Also, there is very important to cook soup over low temperature. In this way, meat softens well and combine with other ingredients in the pot.
Regarding the vinegar, Hungarians don’t like to eat this soup with a too sour taste, generally speaking. I like a moderate sour taste, but, of course, everyone can add a vinegar quantity according to its own taste.
Sometimes, I replace vinegar with spicy or classic mustard. Here is how I proceed: I place a spoon of mustard into the plate, I add a spoon of sour cream, then I combine them well by spoon and, finely, I add 2-3 ladles of hot soup over this mixture. You have to try this version of the Hungarian lamb soup with dumplings at least once because it’s simply heavenly and you’ll like it at most!
Whichever is the way to sour the Hungarian lamb soup with dumplings, this soup recipe is one of the best to celebrate Easter and all fans of Hungarian cuisine have to try it! No one will regret it!
Enjoy Hungarian lamb soup with dumplings!
