Russian Borscht Soup
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Cook: 1 hour
Makes8 servings (2 quarts)
My book club read a Russian theme book so what else but to serve a Russian luncheon to the 12 ladies. The Russian Borscht Soup was a huge hit as a starter so much so I was requested to send out the recipe!
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.
Absolutely love this recipe! Will definately make it again
Very Very Good as close to moms as i've been able to find. tasty, freezes great and wonderful on a winters night.
