DIRECTIONS

  • Place beef short ribs, salt and pepper in a stock pot.
  • Cover with water (at least 3 quarts) and bring to a boil.
  • Let simmer until the meat falls off the bone.
  • Skim off any "scum" and visible fat.
  • Add cubed red beets, ensuring that there is enough liquid to cover them.
  • Bring back to the boil.
  • Simmer until red beets are tender.
  • Take out about 3 cups of the soup mixture including red beets but excluding meat, and place in blender. Blend until mostly smooth.
  • Add the blended mixture back to the pot.
  • Add cubed potatoes and simmer until tender.
  • Add half and half, and sour cream.
  • Mix well.
  • Be certain to not let the soup come to a boil once the dairy products have been added.
  • Check for seasoning. Adjust with salt and pepper as necessary.
  • Serve and enjoy.
