  1. Borsch is one of the most delicious soups I have tasted in my life. My friends are vegetarian so they don’t add meat when preparing it, but it is still very delicious

  2. Personally, I would forego the beans. Instead use beef, not the pork. Lard, WTF? Maybe even add some honey. There ar millions of recipes perhaps, each to his own! Yummmm!

    • Basically you boil meat before adding any vegetables, about 1 hour (or 2, if meat not very tender). Then you take it out, cut at byte-size pieces and put back, then adding cabbage, potato and so on.
