Borscht is an old traditional Eastern European soup provided by @xtrisarahtops . This wonderful recipe was created by her grandmother in law. recipe exchange borscht



Note: I used enough ingredients to fill a LARGE soup pot, so I recommend eyeballing and adjusting the amount of produce to fill 1/3 of the pot.


  • 1 lb beef (I used cubed sirloin tips)
  • 5-8 raw beets (peeled and cubed)
  • About 4 cups of little purple potatoes, cubed
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1 bag of chopped/shredded purple cabbage (for color)
  • 1 can crushed tomatoes
  • White vinegar
  • Purple carrots, chopped
  • 12 oz vegetable stock


  1. In a large soup pot brown the beef in some oil, salt, and pepper
  2. Pour in the veggie stock and fill the rest of the pot with water until 1/2 full
  3. Bring to a boil and then simmer until the beef is no longer pink
  4. Saute the beets, carrots, and onion and then add to the pot.
  5. Stir and let simmer until the beets are a little softer
  6. Add the chopped potatoes
  7. Stir and simmer for around 20 minutes
  8. Add Cabbage
  9. Let simmer another 15-20 min
  10. Add crushed tomatoes and vinegar to taste
  11. Pour in a bowl and top with sour cream and dill (and traditionally a clove of garlic on the side and maybe some vodka! ENJOY!!!)
