Borscht with Beef

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/borscht_beef.html

From EatingWell:  January/February 2013

Even people who think they don’t like beets love this vibrantly colored, vegetable-packed borscht soup recipe, inspired by the legendary borscht soup served at New York’s Russian Tea Room. Plenty of mushrooms, cabbage and carrots along with a judicious amount of beef make this healthy borscht recipe special.

8 servings, about 1 1/3 cups each | Active Time: 40 minutes | Total Time: 1 3/4 hours

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a large soup pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add steak and cook, stirring frequently, until beginning to brown, 2 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a bowl.
  2. Add 1 teaspoon oil to the pot and heat over medium-high. Add mushrooms and cook, stirring, until beginning to brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to the bowl.
  3. Add the remaining 1 teaspoon oil to the pot. Add beets, cabbage, carrots, onion and celery. Cook, stirring frequently, until beginning to soften, about 10 minutes. Add wine and cook, stirring and scraping up any browned bits. Stir in the reserved mushrooms, broth, tomato sauce and Worcestershire sauce. Cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to maintain a simmer and cook, covered, until the vegetables are tender, about 30 minutes.
  4. Add the reserved beef. Simmer, covered, until heated through, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in 1/4 cup dill. Top each portion with 1 tablespoon sour cream and garnish with more dill, if desired.
