Great borscht, given to me by my 90yr old father-in-law, Vincent.

Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add potatoes, and cook until tender, about 15 minutes.
  2. In another pot, simmer ribs and onions in 4 cups of water for 2 hours, or until ribs are tender. Remove ribs, and set aside. Skim fat from simmering liquid, and pour in beet juice. Add chopped pork and beets, and bring to a simmer.
  3. In a bowl, whisk sour cream together with 2 cups of water and the vinegar. Slowly stir into soup. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve over boiled potatoes.
  4. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

Good and simple. Since I vegetarianized this, I used textured soy and two 'beef' bullion. Also added one carrot and two stalks of celery. I would recommend serving with a dollop of sour cream on top. Also, save yourself the dishes and use only one pot- add ingredients in this order: celery, carrots, potatoes, then beets so that they are all equally as soft. Borscht shouldn't feel chunky, but rather melt in your mouth.
