I told one of the ladies that posted a beet salad I would post this beet soup recipe. I did not like beets as well until I had this cuisine in culinary school. We had prepared on that particular day over 30-40 recipes from our instructor's cookbook that she had published for TVI students, and of all the foods that we tasted this was the one that impressed me the most, amongst a few others. It was true love because I would have taken home the young male student that prepared it if only I had been younger...lol.

How to Make Borscht

Step-by-Step

  1. Simmer the beef in the water or stock until tender. Remove the cooked beef from the stock and cut it into small dice.
  2. Measure the broth, and if necessary, add water to bring it back up to 3 qt.
  3. Return the meat to the broth.
  4. Heat the butter in a heavy pot. Add onion, leeks, and the cabbage. Cook slowly in the butter for about 5 minutes.
  5. Drain the beets and save the juice. Grate beets on a course grater, or chop them fine. Add the mixture of onions, leeks, cabbage, beets, beet juice, tomato puree, vinegar, and sugar to the broth. Bring to a boil and simmer until vegetables are tender.
  6. Season to taste with salt, white pepper, and more vinegar, if desired. Serve each portion with a spoonful of sour cream.
