Classic borsch with meat

Borsch is the first thing that many of us will think of when we hear the word soup. One of the most popular soups that are found in both Russian and Ukrainian cuisine, as well as the cuisine of many Eastern European countries. Suppose that with differences in recipes and name, but the most important thing is that they always unite, the main vegetable ingredient is beets. Whether it’s a delicious borsch with meat or lean, with cabbage or beans, the right red borsch will always be with beets. This makes him special and loved.

We always associate borsch with a home-made dinner, mom or grandmother in the kitchen and unique aromas of meat and vegetables. I know so many people who have borscht - this is their favorite soup. And I can understand their feelings. By the way, each family has its own tricks and features of cooking delicious borsch. Someone adds pepper, someone adds lemon juice, vegetables are laid out in different sequences, tomatoes and spices, garlic, dumplings, lard. It diversity and the head can spin.

Most recently, I talked about the lean version of borscht, and in this article I want to turn to borscht with meat, my favorite. And I think that many will agree with me.

The easiest recipe for cooking borsch with beef

First of all, I want to tell you how to cook a delicious borsch with meat on beef broth. Beef is lean, tasty and healthy, rich in iron and protein, and also contains B vitamins. Broths that are cooked from meat with bone are especially successful. Of course, you don’t need to cook one bone, but if you have a piece of meat with a small bone, then the broth will definitely turn out to be excellent, thick and rich, but not fat. Therefore, borsch with meat on beef can be considered a dish safe for your figure, the main thing is not to use too much vegetable oil when preparing the frying.

For borscht you will need:

  • beef - 400-500 gr (possible with a bone),
  • beets - 1 pc large (or 2 small),
  • cabbage - 300 grams,
  • potatoes - 3-4 pieces,
  • carrots - 1-2 pieces,
  • onions - 1 piece,
  • tomato paste - 2 tablespoons without top,
  • garlic and herbs to taste,
  • bay leaf - 1-2 pcs.,
  • vegetable oil - 2-3 tablespoons,
  • salt, peppercorns.


1. A delicious borsch with meat always begins with the preparation of the broth. It is necessary to thoroughly rinse a piece of meat, remove fragments of seeds and put it to simmer on medium heat. In the process of cooking, be sure to constantly remove emerging foam from the surface of the water. If you do not remove it, the broth will be muddy and not tasty. Foam is a protein that is released from meat when heated. As soon as the water boils, reduce the heat to medium or slightly lower, so that there is no active boiling, but only rare bubbles. So the beef will almost languish in the water and get a very tasty broth. Cooking can take from two to three hours, depending on what part of the carcass you used. Check readiness for soft meat.

2. When the meat is soft, you can remove it from the pan to allow it to cool. A little later, cut it into small pieces, which will be convenient to eat. Meanwhile, we will begin to lay vegetables. Peel potatoes, beets and carrots. Cut the potatoes into cubes and put them in a pot in boiling water. Fire can already be added. Cook potatoes for 10 minutes.

3. While the potatoes are being cooked, cut the cabbage into thin strips. Do not make it too long, the slices should be placed in a tablespoon so that it is convenient to eat ready-made soup. Put the cabbage to cook 10 minutes after the potatoes. And cook another 10 minutes.

If you have autumn or winter cabbage, then it cooks longer and is more rigid. In this case, it can be put together with potatoes or in front of it.

4.At this time, put a frying pan with a small amount of vegetable oil on the fire. Finely chop the onion and pour it into the pan. Fry the onion until it becomes transparent and just starts to get a little golden.

5. The next vegetable is also fried in a skillet. It will be carrots, it must be grated on a coarse grater. Do this in advance, so that while you rub it, the onion is not overcooked. Add the grated carrots to the onion and continue to passer, stirring constantly. Carrots and onions should be soft, but not fried until crusted. A crust on roasting will spoil the taste of the soup.

6. When the carrots soften a little and change color, it's time to put the grated beets and tomato paste. You need to add them together because beets during heat treatment begin to lose their saturated burgundy red color, and the acid contained in tomato paste prevents this process and fixes the color. Some culinary specialists add vinegar or citric acid to the soup to fix the color, but this time we will do with tomato paste.

7. Stir the vegetables with tomato paste well and reduce the heat under a skillet. Now prepare the frying over low heat until the beets are slightly softened. You can cover and stew vegetables slightly.

8. While frying is stewed, we check potatoes with cabbage. Catch a spoonful of vegetables and try to cut them with a knife, if it is easy to cut and does not crunch, then they are ready. It's time to return the boiled meat, sliced ​​into pieces, in the cooking soup.

9. Vegetables cooked, frying is ready. It's time to connect them. Transfer the frying to a boiling broth with vegetables and stir well. Cook another 5-7 minutes. Salt the borscht to taste, add the bay leaf and, if desired, a few peas of pepper. Then turn off the stove, cover the soup with a lid and leave it to insist for 15-20 minutes.

10. If you want to add flavor to our delicious borsch with meat, chop finely fresh herbs and garlic. Put in the soup and mix. You can add greens and garlic already in the plates when serving.

Well, that’s our borsch with beef. You can pour it on plates, add sour cream or herbs to taste. Take out fresh rye bread and call everyone to the table.

Borsch with pork ribs - step by step recipe

If you choose from which to cook delicious borsch with meat, then in second place after beef I will have pork ribs. But not smoked, as we use for pea soup, but raw. From them we will cook a good, satisfying broth for borsch, it will be correct and rich, because the ribs are made of meat and bone, and the bone, as you know, is the best friend of a tasty broth.

You will need:

  • pork ribs - up to 1 kg,
  • beets - 1 piece (large),
  • potatoes - 3-4 pieces,
  • carrots - 1 piece,
  • onion - 1 piece,
  • tomato paste - 2 tablespoons,
  • cabbage - 250-300 grams (1/4 head of cabbage),
  • garlic - 2-3 cloves,
  • greens to taste,
  • Bay leaf,
  • salt and pepper to taste.


1. Rinse the pork ribs thoroughly in running water. Then divide into parts, cutting between the bones of the ribs so that one rib remains in one piece. Too long ribs can be cut in half, but then do not forget to rinse the meat again so that no bone fragments remain. Preheat the pan and fry the ribs on both sides until light brown for 5 minutes. After that, pour water into the pan and put them to boil for about 1 hour. Lightly fried meat will give the broth a golden color and a pleasant taste.

2. While the meat is cooked, you can prepare all the vegetables. Cabbage is peeled from the upper leaves and chopped with small straws. Peel the potato and fill it with cold water so that it does not darken. Peel and grate beets and carrots on a coarse grater. Chop the onion into small squares. Peel and finely chop the garlic.

3. After the meat is cooked, remove it from the pan and set it aside. Later we will return it to the soup when the vegetables are cooked.

4.Cut the potatoes into cubes and toss to the boiling broth for 5-7 minutes.

5. Try cabbage, if it is tough from late varieties, then put it to boil 10 minutes after the potatoes. If she is young summer, then the cabbage is laid after frying and cooked for only 7-10 minutes.

7. Put the onions in a frying pan with heated oil and fry them until soft, then add carrots and beets. Mix everything well and reduce the heating temperature. Simmer vegetables over medium heat for 10 minutes.

8. Add the tomato paste to the roasting, stir and fry for another 5 minutes. Tomato paste will give vegetables a red color and a characteristic smell. It is important not to add fire, otherwise everything will boil and be tasteless.

9. By the time the roast is ready, the cabbage and potatoes in the pan should become softer. Add the frying to the soup and stir. Cook for another 10 minutes over low heat so that it gently gurgles, and does not boil actively. After that, you can add garlic and herbs. Salt and pepper the soup, put the bay leaf.

10. Try all the vegetables to taste, they should be cooked and soft. After that, remove the pan from the heat, return the pork ribs to the borsch and cover with a lid. Let the soup brew for 25-30 minutes. During this time it cools down a little and is saturated with the aromas and tastes of all the ingredients.

Recipe of dish.

Prepare the ingredients. My vegetables, root vegetables are peeled, we remove the top leaves from cabbage, we cut the stalk from pepper and tomatoes. We remove seeds from sweet pepper. Rinse the meat better with running water.

We start cooking the soup by cooking the broth.

In the pan we put the meat on the bones, peeled whole onions and carrots, peas and bay leaves. Fill the contents of the dishes with cold water (2.5 l).

We cook the broth at maximum heat until boiling, then reduce to a power lower than average (3-4 out of 9). The cooking time of the broth depends on the type of meat. For pork, 1-1.5 hours are enough, but beef must be boiled all 2-2.5 hours.

Do not forget to remove the foam that appears on the surface of the water during cooking (if it adheres to the surface of the pan, remove it with a clean cloth), otherwise the broth will turn cloudy.

20-30 minutes before the end of cooking the liquid base of the soup, prepare its filling.

To do this, grind beets and carrots, I do this with a Korean carrot grater.

Fry beets in a hot frying pan with oil with medium heat.

Finely chop the cabbage.

The broth is ready. Now it needs to be filtered. We separate the meat from the bones, we still need it, and discard the rest.

Then we drop the cabbage into the rich liquid and cook it over medium heat for about 10 minutes.

Cut the potatoes into a large cube.

Add the root crop to the cabbage. We continue to cook the soup for another 10-15 minutes.

Boiled meat, separated from the bone, cut into small pieces. Then it can be slightly fried in a pan with oil (about 5 minutes).

The potatoes are almost cooked, now you can add the previously cooked frying and meat to the soup.

Cook the contents of the pan for about 5 minutes.

Last of all, add salt (1 tbsp) to our dish. Then we cover the pan with a lid and let the soup brew for another 5-10 minutes.

Pour rich and fragrant and delicious borsch on plates and serve with greens and sour cream.

Classic borsch with meat - general principles of cooking

All that is needed for borsch is meat, it is better to use brisket, and vegetables.

Vegetables are cut into thin strips, the beets are stewed, and all other vegetables are slightly fried: fats absorb and retain aromatic substances, essential oils that are contained in the roots. In addition, the coloring matter of carrots and tomatoes dissolves in fats and gives the appetizer a delicious appearance.

An important condition for successful cooking is the correct sequence of bookmarking products. Since the heat treatment of beets, for example, is quite lengthy, in order to preserve the color, citric acid or lemon juice and tomato puree are added to the tip of the knife.

Together with fried roots and onions, spices should be added to the borsch. At the end of cooking, it is recommended to add sweet Bulgarian pepper.

Borsch brought to readiness is left to insist (for twenty minutes), then served to the table.

Buckwheat porridge, pancakes, cheesecakes, pies, pies, kulebyaki, donuts with garlic are served to borsch. Bon Appetit!

Ukrainian borsch has many faces: its composition varies depending on the area in which it appeared or became traditional. Kiev borscht differs from Poltava, Lviv - from Chernihiv, Galitsky from Volyn. The difference also lies in the meat used for the broth or a combination of meat varieties: beef, pork, poultry, in the method of processing beets: stewed, baked, boiled until half-cooked or fermented, in the set of vegetables and additional ingredients - beans, prunes, apples, sweet pepper . And it would be nice to serve pampushki to Ukrainian borsch - small yeast buns smeared with garlic.

For serving classic borsch with meat, many will obviously miss the garlic pampushki. You can cook them one of three recipes: first, second and third.


Borsch - a classic dish of Slavic cuisine. Borscht thick vegetable soup, the main ingredient.

Soup recipes are incredibly varied. Hot and cold, light and very satisfying, transparent and.


Classic hodgepodge soup will go perfectly on the second or third day of the holiday - when the people.

The proposed recipe and technology do not pretend to be authentic, nor ethnographic, nor.

You can argue as much as you like about how to cook borsch with meat or what is the classic recipe for borsch with meat. How many housewives - so many opinions. For myself, I made a couple of conclusions: 1) vegetables must be burned in a dry frying pan, which is for borsch, and for cooking the broth. I always burn the onion head, cut in half, a carrot (prepared also) and a couple of cloves of garlic. 2) it’s better not to boil cabbage for a classic borscht than to digest it. let it be a little al dente than creep in a plate with borsch. 3) I also do not like to use vinegar, if it is not balsamic. but even balsamic is not needed for such a wonderful classic of Slavic cuisine, and even with meat. it is better to add lemon juice, or as someone below accurately and correctly noticed - pomegranate juice. 4) seasonings and serving of borsch - a very important thing! recently visited Rostov-on-Don and there the market could not tear myself away from pickled plums. here they would definitely not be superfluous in borsch. cut them in half, remove the stone, chop coarsely and together with 1-2 tbsp. l mustard, sugar and salt marinade - clap and borsch. beauty! and if you take parsley, then only young. she even has a special aroma - a garden, not a store. How else? for the classic borsch with meat - all the best.

This is a recipe for cooking borscht. DO NOT NEED. I’m about like Vladimir only with beetroot salad and no one has ever complained. I throw the cabbage at the very end. as soon as the cabbage boiled immediately turn off

In vain, chewing on Vladimir, his recipe is exactly the one that my great-grandmother and grandmother prepared. And now my mother, I, aunt, and a bunch of relatives. They simply didn’t bother with beets, just large, not fodder and not vinaigrette and not vinegar. You still "maggie" throw there :(

I prefer not to spoil the whole pot with vinegar - I add pomegranate juice to my plate (you can also have lemon or the same vinegar). And so, we must be simpler, gentlemen - and it will turn out tastier. All "delights" often spoil the idea itself. )))

Peel the roots or at least scrape or wash them with a brush, do not peel the onions and carrots, only burn them.

But do not clean the carrots and onions in Step 1 and the bunch of roots?

I read borsch debate. In my opinion, people forget that culinary processing is not valuable in itself, but in order to make it easier for the body to absorb chemical elements from existing products, proteins, fats and carbohydrates. The working conditions of a person and the presence of a specific type of plant in a given climatic zone dictates the advisability of using certain ingredients, processing agents, fat content, etc. There is beetroot, excellent, another grows, well, then we will process the one that is.

Natalka, so that you know that this is how they cook borsch in Ukraine in many areas, by the way, I know that the recipe is similar to Kuban. Cabbage should not be overcooked! Have you tried this? It’s unlikely. Otherwise, you wouldn’t say that. cabbage in borscht is snot. And we have beets, which is called borscht. And the smell of old bacon is a separate accent! Well, haven’t you tried, why are you denying it? Vinegar, the purple color of borscht will not cause any appetite in any of my family . Do not get used, we are a sort of brew).

The recipe is interesting, and some comments (Vladimir, Borisman - by the way, it seemed that this was the same writing style) surprised to shock. Ukraine does not smell in the recipes of commentators. There are several beet varieties, and among them there is a dining room (maroon, without veins, flattened shape) that people eat, and fodder (pink, whitish, with veins), which, for example, in the Kiev region, was always given only to livestock - cows pigs. Rude she. The second point, which was simply frightening, was the addition of Suneli hop to the Ukrainian borsch. I really love this seasoning in Georgian dishes, but what does the Ukrainian borsch have to do with it? And of course, lovers of crisp cabbage in borsch were very pleased. Here, as they say, just no comment. Mistresses, especially young ones, keep honor from a young age! :) In order not to lose your beloved husband, never use the recipes offered by Vladimir and Borisman!

Very correct recipe! I also do something like this and it turns out very tasty. Thank you !!

No matter whose cuisine this recipe belongs to, the most important thing is that the dish is delicious! Thanks to the author for the recipe!

uh, I read straight) ladies and gentlemen, do not forget that borsch is a dish of Slavic cuisine. they prepare it both in Ukraine, in their own way, and in Russia. Russia is big. there is a south with its climate, certain products and with its taste preferences (similar to Ukraine). there is a central part, northern, eastern - and they cook everywhere in different ways, taking into account local products and established family culinary traditions. I'm from Peter. in my family, they always added a spoonful of vinegar, just the same (Ukrainians, only without tantrums!)) in order to preserve the color. and the beetroot soup is an exceptionally cold summer dish, which, by the way, is also added to vinegar)) with bell pepper, things were like this - when the season (late summer-fall) is not expensive, then mom sometimes added. in winter - no. in general, everything was simple - sometimes some foods were added, sometimes they were reduced (lard, various greens, peppers, tomatoes). nevertheless, the main ingredients of borscht are the same - minced meat, beets, cabbage, carrots, potatoes, onions, garlic, parsley, peas and salt. and then you can experiment))

I agree with the recipe for borsch Vladimir! I live in Ukraine, Dnepropetrovshchina. It’s also exactly cook with us. Beetroot color of borscht is not welcome, as well as the presence of vinegar. Namely borscht beetroot, and the color is achieved by fresh or sour mashed tomatoes or real homemade juice or fruit drink. And it is correctly written about cabbage, it is cooked a little and should crunch. And if it’s old bacon . It is simply an indescribable spirit.I tried different recipes, but this is my favorite one, the taste is combined of all vegetables. And in the recipes where the beets are acidified with vinegar, the taste of beets still prevails. And these soups are called beetroots. Vladimir, the recipe, he will understand that this is what you need! Super borsch!

Yes, lemon juice works just like vinegar.

Dear, who will tell you about maintaining a bright color - does lemon juice give the same effect as vinegar? By the way, I notice that borscht recipes on the Internet are similar to pilaf recipes - in both cases, the publication reveals tantrum-prone citizens who for some reason refuse to understand that borscht is not only Ukrainian (which is also not the same species), and pilaf is not only Uzbek.

This borsch is a basic recipe, dear authors, be more modest, calling your dish basic, you lose your credibility, so you have not tried any other options .. this is not a basic recipe and not at all borsch, but a version of beetroot soup and cabbage soup, so to speak, an average version , which is more suitable for the population of the central part of Russia, where initially these soups are most often cooked, where cabbage can be stewed or languished for hours, where it is practically impossible to buy beetroot beetroot, in any case, being with my son in Moscow I was looking for large enough m vegetable market, but I found and replaced the pink. What was the amazement of the sellers when they heard what happens besides beetroot and pink beets, borsch beets. Real Ukrainian borscht has nothing to do with this recipe, our grandmothers always cooked plain food with a limited number of ingredients and did not sit near the pan for days, but the kitchen was unusually tasty, as an example, pay attention to the cuisine of the Caucasus or Spain - always plain dishes but taste. and this borscht most likely resembles a variant of Italian or French intricate cuisine. Every time I come to Moscow, they ask me to cook borsch, although they can cook such a meal as they themselves, the beets really have to be brought from Krasnodar. Can you imagine our grandmothers picking the broth? or discarded boiled vegetables in it? By the way, this makes no sense because no one can distinguish whether a ready-made soup is filtered. if you cook transparent soups, I agree, and even not so, you will pick and hodgepodge and pickle and shurpa. As for vinegar, did you try borsch with vinegar the next day? it's slops. As for the color of beets, which he should preserve, if you think that borsch should be purple, then this (I repeat) is a beetroot. Cabbage must definitely crunch, by the way, the taste of borsch depends on its quality. Now let me give you a recipe for borscht, as my grandmother, who lived in Ukraine for most of her life, and how they cook now in the villages of Krasnodar, cooked. I do not use the word BASIC and REAL. So the recipe: the broth is most often cooked on the beef brain bone, the aesthetic moment is the beef broth is transparent, and when you cook from the brain bone, beautiful golden spots of fat float on the surface. As soon as the meat boils, add half of the very finely chopped onion, salt and if this thing happens in the summer, then whole non-marketed tomatoes are cracked and overripe. Approximately in the middle of cooking, CUTED, not grated BROWN beet, is added with thin bars (you need a skill, just like in a real pilaf carrots are cut and not rubbed on a grater). The borsch beet in the section has the appearance of alternating stripes of white and pink. In the absence of such beets, my grandmother acted as follows: sticks of pink beets (not venereal, it is sweet and very purple) were soaked in water several times changing the water to leave the color. While the broth is being cooked, the so-called frying or frying is being prepared.In vegetable oil (There was no odorless vegetable oil before, so frying was prepared using pork fat), the finely chopped second half of the medium onion is fried and chopped carrots with very thin transparent sticks (as an option for especially lazy carrots, you can grate it roughly like on Korean carrots) the onion is fried until it starts to golden and then the carrots are added. Carrots stew for several minutes until soft. Chopped potatoes are added to the broth so that at the end of cooking it boils a little bit. Then tomatoes are caught from the broth, rubbed in a colander with a spoon (as my grandmother did and now of course there are a lot of small useful strainers) to remove the skin and part of the seeds and put it on the frying pan, it turns out about more than half a small 20 cm aluminum Soviet frying pan (why it’s not so tasty). In the absence of tomatoes, good quality tomato juice is used, generally slightly sour. You can wipe canned tomatoes. For the winter, my grandmother was preparing a dressing for borscht, which included bell pepper and sour tomatoes, parsley celery root. But this is ideal. The presence of grated roots in a roast is only welcome! While the roast gurgles (it should boil a little), the cabbage is shredded. The taste of borscht depends on its quality. Delicious cabbage - delicious borscht, preferably pickled cabbage. It is not bitter and white. There should be a lot of cabbage that will remain on the salad. Favorite spices are added to the roasting. We put it in the hops and other dried herbs, in the broth - bay leaf. Turn off the frying. From the broth, take out a bone, pour cabbage there, pour the roast and pour a bunch of chopped greens, dill, and parsley. If there is bell pepper, it can be added either at the end of the frying, or before cabbage into a broth cut thinly with a quarter ring. Let it boil and cook for 2-3. minutes are not 20-30. Cover and let stand for 10-15 minutes without wrapping anything on the stove. Serve with sour cream, with brown bread, with bacon, chopped into thin plates on a plate, in general, this is for an amateur who likes it .. Of course, do not forget about the bone in the plate or a piece of meat cut from it, with a streak of beef fat. Now about the old fat .... Unusual aroma and taste gives this seasoning, but. You need to get used to it, and then you won’t drag it by the ears, I judge by my children, at first they don’t eat such borsch, then they get it and then they love it! But these are again options, of course you can get by. For connoisseurs, I’m telling you: a piece of old bacon with about an eraser is cut very finely, a little chopped onion is added a little, crushed in a mortar or spoon on a cutting board to make a plasticine mass. Here it is added along with frying and cabbage. Borsch is cooked very quickly and not intricately, allowing you to do other household chores between operations and not stand and conjure over a pan. In the summer in the heat, such borscht is unusually tasty also when cold from the refrigerator - without warming up.

Thank you very good borschts))))))))))) I’m directly waiting for my work to appreciate))))

Forty minutes is not enough. During this time, the broth will gain some strength, but the meat does not have time to lose all its taste.

how much time do you need to cook meat? written in the recipe 40 min. is it not enough?

I grew up and studied cooking in Ukr "ini ridny! My aunts would have beaten me with basins in the bathhouse if they had known that I had a store tomato in a borscht. I GO. Actually, in the season we put sweet tomatoes, we harvested the tomato in winter, we called it fruit drinks The cabbage really should crunch the most, and this is the skill of the real mistress - not to miss this important moment! And, for God's sake, a little vinegar. And the beetroot should be stewed over a slow fire, and a little sugar slightly - sugar in any dish shows a taste.By the way, now you can put tomatoes of a good firm, peeled in your own juice, in winter, put them into a pan with a blender and almost at the end of cooking, let it boil and turn it off. Grind fresh garlic and dill right in a bowl and pour on a hot soup. And I cook a little piece of old fat in borsch, and then throw it away - the taste remains, but less fat.

finally I got a delicious borsch :) thanks, great recipe. Vinegar added a homemade 1 dessert spoon. Otherwise, everything is strictly prescription.

Vinegar is added to beets when stewed to enhance color. Sugar is needed to soften the acidity of borsch. And there is natural vinegar - apple. Better yet, instead of vinegar, add squeezed lemon juice.

Good detailed recipe. I just boiled such a borshchik, it turned out sour .. Apparently one and a half tablespoons of acetic acid is too much .. Next time I'll try to replace it with lemon juice ..

Dear! Cook the basic Borsch according to this recipe and you will be happy! I’ll also put in my 5 kopecks - to get closer to the classic Ukrainian borsch, crushed garlic with old bacon is put in it at the end. Yes, and I would have thrown cabbage 5 minutes before the end of cooking, for 1 hour of insisting, it will reach it. Moreover, I recommend that you remove the pan from the stove at home and wrap it with thermal insulation such as quilted jackets, this will significantly increase the effect of "insisting". Although without this, the recipe is good! I’ve been cooking it for almost 20 years now. But this is not the manufacture of explosives and the variations are very useful! Variations with components can be very wide! This is beans and sweet as well as hot peppers and many more vegetables. It is customary to cook the same dish according to a strict recipe only in catering establishments - canteens and restaurants. There, the client should get what it expects by trying at least once “this” in a specific “access point”. For home cooking or special wishes, any wishes can be fulfilled, especially without experimentation you will not recognize a new taste. Thanks again for the recipe for people who want to start cooking the right dishes.

Thank you very much, I gave a link to the recipe to a friend who first cooked borsch - the result pleased!))) In our family, instead of vinegar, fresh lemon juice is added, and if vinegar is really a little quality wine. If we close our tomato in the summer, then we add it, if not, then the prepared pasta is extra or premium, I don’t see a problem. For Borisman. Oh, well, just a nightmare. And you did not try to cook first, and then judge so (to put it mildly) strictly? You know, it’s not very nice to read the recipe you are going to cook when your future dinner is called. Em. non-drinking terms. Please take care of the appetite of others, even strangers to you, people =)

Speaking of vinegar, tomato paste and other industrial products used in cooking, dear commentators for some reason imply their extremely low quality. Why so? What makes it difficult to buy Italian tomato paste, or good wine vinegar? I guess nothing. For Borisman: Thank you for reading us! Obviously, such a detailed commentary requires an equally detailed answer. So. Firstly, the process of pre-frying onions and carrots is described in sufficient detail: "2 minutes, without changing color, then set aside" - no matter how young and inexperienced your housewife is, you should certainly be smart enough to follow these instructions. Secondly, vinegar. OK, in 2002, with which the recipe dates, there was some tension with good wine vinegar in Russia. Yes, we used alcohol vinegar in the recipe. However, one and a half spoons of what vinegar you want, taken on such a quantity of products, will not affect the final taste of the dish in a catastrophic way described by you. As for the aforementioned "ventricles" - I suppose, in principle, borsch is not shown to them. Thirdly, sugar. First of all, we do not agree with your opinion regarding its mortal nature.And it is added to borsch in order to even out tastes in an elementary way - just like salt, pepper, zest, grated parmesan, soy sauce and other tasteful ingredients are added. Many chefs do this, and we see no reason to deny their many years of practice. As for the preparation catalysts, we know a few of them, but neither carrots nor beets are among them. Regarding the cooking time of cabbage. More precisely, should the cabbage crunch in the finished borsch. We believe in no case. You - that is just what you need. Obviously, this is a matter of taste. In our favor, we can argue that borsch is an ultra-traditional soup in which the ingredients must be ultra-traditionally prepared. And that only in this case they form the very complex flavoring composition that we are looking for, starting to cook borsch.

Anyone who cooks with tomato paste, vinegar and all kinds of similar chemistry there, forget that in addition to taste (there is a taste in the anacoma), you also need some benefit. But with fresh tomatoes from the garden (in winter with tomato), herbs and quality meat you get and very tasty and certainly healthy. And the recipe is somehow complicated, everything ingenious is simple!

I read the comments and was horrified. It’s how many people haven’t tried a really tasty borscht if they praise it. Yes, turn on the elementary brains and everything will become clear. Immediately I want to apologize for my lack of restraint, although I try my best to keep myself on the brakes! Why? I explain. Let's imagine that after the wedding night, the newly-married spouse, leaving for work, says to her beloved, now legitimate wife: “Beloved, I’m going to work, and you, so that the time would not seem endless without me, please prepare to my arrival, my beloved borsch. This will kill you 2 hares: time will pass quickly and there will be something to replenish my strength after hard physical work to please you, my joy all night! " The wife, not wanting to upset her desired by the fact that she does not know how to cook, modestly lowered her gaze and smiled shyly, which the husband took as agreement. And then came the crucial moment. SHE decided to cook. Fortunately, all young people are advanced and using the Internet you can find the answer to any question and solve any problem. Having visited the culinary site, she easily finds the recipe for borsch and without hesitation she chooses the first recipe she has found, in which she writes a similar nonsense. I apologize, but I can not give another definition of the so-called borscht. Why? In order not to be unfounded - I explain: well, firstly, in order to fry onions, carrots and beets not just 2 tbsp. l rast. oil, 5 is not enough. As a result, the young housewife in the best case will get frying in places burnt due to lack of fat. Which as a result will affect the taste and necessarily the smell! Secondly: vinegar. Besides the fact that, to put it mildly, it’s not very useful especially for the “ventricles” - heartburn after such borsch is ensured for him, he also beats off the taste and smell going into a bouquet that cannot be repeated, but intensifying, I’m not afraid of this word, the smell of beets, even if she was well stewed. Thirdly: sugar. Not only do we eat this white death with all sorts of drinks, so we also need to add it to the first courses. Why, please tell me, is sugar being put? Can anyone answer? If anyone doesn’t know, I’ll explain that sugar is put not for taste at all, but to make the dish cook faster. But why should she, a young mistress and a loving wife, rush? After all, she cooks meat, i.e., cook the broth on low heat so that the broth is not cloudy and tasty. And the speed of cooking has never tasted the dish. But that is not all. The fact is that it accelerates the preparation of borscht, in our version, carrots and beets. They are the substitutes for sugar.So why add more? The utter nonsense lies in the fact that, according to the recipe, our cook should put sugar at the end of the preparation of borsch! And why then do you need this sugar bookmark at all? We eat further, in - fourth: most of all I am shocked by the 8th step. This is the bookmark of cabbage and potatoes. How much is the potato cooked? - Up to 20 minutes And how much is cabbage cooked? Which according to the recipe is put before our young mistress puts the potatoes? Will you eat cabbage, which was cooked in total, according to the recipe for 20 minutes plus for an hour languished under the lid when the borsch was insisted? Yes, you will not hear her taste. The only thing you will feel is that something soft and not pleasantly tasteless is spreading on your teeth. After laying the cabbage, the borsch should boil for a maximum of 3 minutes. and then if the cabbage is not young. Then she does not lose her taste, is juicy and crunches on her teeth like a cucumber. And finally: borscht must be insisted, but not like 1 hour. Yes, during this time he will have time to cool down))))))! 20 minutes is enough with the head! Now imagine what a shock our worker will experience when he comes home from work and tastes this stew. I would not want to be in his place. If anyone liked this recipe, then there are 2 options: the 1st option is the hostess (and as a rule, these are our dear women) is not an amateur in cooking and did not adhere to this recipe thoroughly in order to improve its taste, and the 2nd option - if the borsch is cooked in all respects you liked the recipe, I sincerely feel sorry for you. You didn’t eat really tasty borsch! I apologize again! I didn’t want to offend anyone. The sole purpose of my review is to pay tribute to the recipe! Do not blindly believe what is written. On the fence is also written.

horror, not borsch. where in vinegar could vinegar come from ?! I am already silent about potatoes, which during the preparation of the first borscht in Europe simply did not exist. if I were cooking this, my husband would have kicked me out of the house.

Onion is heated in a pan heated with sunflower oil.We fry it until a golden hue is obtained, after which we lay carrots with beets and fry for 10 minutes, without stopping to stir occasionally. In a ready-made vegetable mixture, spread the tomato paste, mix again and turn off the gas.

Pour water into the pan, season with salt and pepper, and put on fire. After boiling, pour the potatoes into the saucepan, turn off the gas and cook the potatoes for about 10 minutes. The next step is pouring cabbage into the broth and cook for about 5 minutes.

As it becomes clear that the cabbage is boiled, put the vegetable frying in the finished broth and remove the fire. We leave the soup ready to stand for 10 minutes, after which we serve it on the table, sprinkled with herbs and seasoned with sour cream or mayonnaise to taste.

Culinary subtleties

In the preparation of delicious rich borscht there are some subtleties.

To make the soup more satisfying, in the pan, before laying out the frying, you can add 2-3 tubers of potato, cut into cubes or straws.

To give the borscht a bright red color, in the broth, before adding the cabbage, you can put 1 beet, cut into small pieces. Before adding frying to the broth, it is recommended to get beets from the broth.

So that the beets do not lose their color, and the soup remains saturated red, you can add a couple of teaspoons of lemon juice to the broth. In addition, it will add a touch of acidity to the taste of the soup.

To give the borscht a greater taste, you can add a spoonful of sugar to the broth. The main thing is not to overdo it.
