Kielbasa and Sauerkraut Soup (Borsch, Borscht)

Kielbasa and Sauerkraut Soup (Borsch, Borscht) created by PalatablePastime

Filling soup with a little zing. My own special creation. 11-19-07: Ok, I'm adding "Borsch" to the title after my Russian friend told me that my recipe was very similar to the Borsch they eat back home. It is in no way authentic, but it is very good!

ingredients

directions

  • Pan fry garlic, and kielbasa until kielbasa is golden brown. In a 5-qt. slow cooker, combine all ingredients.
  • Cover and cook on low for 5-6 hours or until vegetables are tender.
  • **High Altitude -- cook 6-8 hours.
  • Tip: Can be prepared in less time if veggies are pre-cooked in the microwave and onion is fried with kielbasa and garlic. Just add all ingredients to a large pot and bring to a boil. Simmer for an hour or so to blend flavors.
  • Can double recipe and freeze extra in a Zip-Loc for a quick future meal.

    Tastes great. I added beets since the usual main ingredient for borscht are beets. Also changed tomato sauce for diced tomatoes. Instead of the crock pot I used my wonderful electric pressure cooker and my soup was done in 15 minutes instead of having to cook all day.

    Very good, I added 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes to zing it up. I then put in oven proof soup bowls, topped with toasted crusty bread and swiss cheese, broil 5 minutes and yummy. One bowl and your stuffed and satisfied! Thanks for the recipe

    Excellent soup! I love the little bit of tang the vinegar gave it. The whole family enjoyed. Thanks for posting!
