With beets, carrots, cabbage and tomatoes, this recipe is great for gardeners like myself. Not only is it delicious, its bright crimson color is eye-catching on the table.

"My family is from St. Petersburg Russia. This is a good basic recipe for Borscht soup. I like adding beef, like stew beef, when I make it, and let it simmer until it's fork tender. Back in the day, not everyone could afford beef in Russia so this was typical. Try it... it's easy and so good!"

"I tried this borscht recipe and think it's ok.  I just posted a recipe for borscht on my website (www.revivingtraditions.com/russian-borscht) and it?s amazing how different the prep can be. I think everybody?s borcht recipe is different. In fact, my borscht from week to week might even taste different! Borscht just has that reputation. Cheers from a true Russian."
