Borscht is an authentic Russian/Ukrainian soup. It is very nutritious and has a lot of variations. Depending on what you are using as a base bullion it can be a meat, a chicken or a vegetarian (just skip the meaty part) meal.

300gr beef or 1 chicken,
3 beets,
2 carrots,
1 onion,
3 potatoes,
300gr cabbage,
salt and spices as you like.

Step 1: Broth/Bouillon/Clear Soup

Make a broth out of beef, chicken or, if you don't eat meat, just use water.

Step 2: Preparing the Veggies.

Grate 3 beets. Add 0.5 litre of water and place it on fire. As soon as it started boiling take it off and separate "juice" from beet. Let them both rest.

Step 3: Onion, Carrots and Tomatoes.

Mix, add spices, fry on butter and slow cook grated carrots, beets, tomatoes(or a paste), fine cut onion and bell pepper.

Step 4: Potatoes and Cabbage.

Add to the boiling broth cut potatoes and cabbage. Let it boil until almost cooked.

Step 5: All Together.

Mix all the ingredients including the beet "juice", add spices for your taste and boil until potatoes are cooked. Cut the meat from broth and add it.

Step 6: Serve It.

Serve it with sour cream, garlic and rye bread.
Приятного аппетита :)
Bon appetite.
<p>A bay leaf is a wonderful addition. Just pick it out so nobody chokes on it. Or break out the stem and crush it finely with a mortar and pestle.</p>
<p>Made it last night &amp; everybody in our family had second &amp; third helpings. </p><p>We loved it.</p><p>Thank you for delicious easy to make recipe :)</p>
Thank YOU for such a warm words :)
<p>Свинина? В Израиле? Вы, должно быть, шутите :)</p><p>И для наших англоговорящих комрадов:</p><p>Beef? In Israel? Are you joke?</p>
Beef, not pork :)<br>Говядина, мой друг. А свинина в Израиле есть и неплохая :)
damn the Indian govt!beef's banned in my state<br>
I think Any meal has as many variations as many hosts/cooks. My grandmother's borsch is different than my mother's and my mother's is different than mine :)
<p>&laquo;Good to the Last Drop&raquo;</p>
Funny, my family is Russian on both sides but has a totally different borscht recipe. I think all cultures have their own variations of different meals/dishes.
My grandmother cooked the meat in the barszć, and I remember it tasting so good. I am polish, but I guess the Russians wanted their food ready faster.<br>XD
<p>That looks good.</p>
Thank You, General :)
