Recipe by karen in tbay
I always thought borsht soup was just made with beets until I tried this recipe. Sorry cannot advise amount of water - this is the way the recipe was given to me and so I would assume using a normal size soup/stock pot.
- 3 cups boneless beef cubes
- 1 large onion
- water, to cover
- 7 -8 large beets, cubed (or 20 small)
- 5 -7 bay leaves
- 1⁄4 cup white vinegar, to taste (up to 1/2 cup)
- sour cream
