DIRECTIONS

  • Cut potatoes into small cubes.
  • Add chicken stock to pot, then add cubed potatoes.
  • While potatoes are cooking, brown onions in oil in a skillet.
  • When potatoes are almost done, add cole slaw mix, bay leaves, peppercorns, garlic clove.
  • Let cook for 10-15 minutes; then add browned onions and bacon bits.
  • Add tomato paste next and let simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Add beets, along with lemon juice, to prevent the beet color from fading.
  • If you find the soup too sour from the lemon juice, you can use sugar to correct flavor.
  • In the end add dill, salt and pepper to taste and turn off the stove.
  • Let the borsch brew for another 10 minutes.
  • Serve the borsch with sour cream the next day --- best to refrigerate overnight.
