Fusion food is so popular these days and yet I haven’t seen any restaurant with Russian Chinese food. I know it exists too because a close family friend, that I call Grandma Olia, grew up on the border of China and Russia. She speaks Russian, Chinese, and English fluently.

Grandma Olia is a second mother to my mom, and she taught her how to make this Russian Chinese Oxtail Soup. I enjoyed this soup frequently as a child and when I got sick this weekend, my mom brought over a whole pot of it. She knew it would make me feel better.

Sadly, my mother doesn’t have written recipes for anything, but this rustic soup is simple: oxtail, onions, carrots, celery, cabbage, canned beets, and a bit of canned tomatoes.
