Originating in Russia, solyanka gets its name from its saltiness. With the Baltic States having been part of the Soviet Union for so long, there is a clear overlap in terms of cuisine and culture. I like to use oxtail to make this soup, but it does need long, slow cooking, so if you’re pushed for time you could choose another cut of beef on the bone, such as short ribs, to reduce the cooking time.
