Borscht with Beef

January/February 2013

Your rating: None Average: 4.1 (19 votes)

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.

Nice winter meal

This was great for a winter night. I shredded/chopped all the veggies in the food processor so the prep was fast. Caraway seeds are a good flavoring and fresh dill.

Lots of veggies and a tiny bit of meat for flavor

Love this recipe!

I am a recent convert to beets and I loved this soup. I made it yesterday and we will be devouring the leftovers for lunch today. It's almost a stew, chock full of veggies and beef.

Lots of Flavor

Pleasantly Surprised

I had actually never had Borscht before, and was a little skeptical at first- I was afraid it was going to be overwhelmingly sweet with beet flavor. But it was actually really good! I froze a batch for dinner next weeks too :) (since it's just for the hubby and me- 6 servings of leftovers can be a little much)

Oh, and if you don't have a food processor- make sure you borrow one!

Delicious, Easy to make ahead

So tasty and different

Family loved this! Shredding the beets is the most laborious part, made easy with the food processor. I would suggest adding more beef than this calls for, though, as I found myself yearning for it (and my infant son loved the beef so I wish I had made more for his sake).

Delicious and healthy

Simple healthy soup

My husband and I don't know why it took us so long to make our first at-home borscht. This soup is fabulous! This recipe is perfect : the chew is there from the mushrooms and a small amount of beef, the jewel color is lovely and it is low calorie and chock full of winter vegetables. The sour cream is traditional and nice but not a necessary element. Love it!!

Healthy, low calorie, tasty

A great soup. The addition

A great soup. The addition of sour cream with it really makes you go back for that second bowl.
