This is a very good borscht my ukrainian grandmother used to make hers with beef this one is very similar. The only change I made was using fresh dill instead of dried and adding chopped flat leaf parsley just before serving.
I liked this recipe but will make a few changes the next time I cook it. I will add less vinegar - I personally found the flavor a bit overpowering. I found I needed almost 5 cups of broth to cover all the ingredients (once I had added the cabbage) and that the 30 minutes of cooking time on HI at the end wasn't nearly enough to cook the cabbage to the consistency that I prefer. In the future I will add the cabbage quite a bit earlier. Otherwise I think this is a wonderful savory borscht.
I love beets and was looking forward to this stew. It looks pretty I guess there is a disconnect between the look and the taste. I kept wanting to taste the beets and all I tasted was the tomato paste. Next time I will leave out the tomato paste.
This borshch recipe is a real keeper; one of the best I've ever tasted and easy to make. (No, "borshch" is not a typo: that's how the folks who invented the dish - Ukrainians, Russians, and other Slavs - call it). The beet tops are edible. They can be chopped and added to the borshch at the same time as the cabbage.
Excellent! LOL I don't like the smell of it cooking but the taste is out of this world. Since I am alone I have a small slow cooker and so cut the recipe in half. I like this so much that I am cooking it again tomorrow! Thank you for sharing.
I love Borscht and we loved this recipe! I hope those that like Borscht don't overlook this recipe. The only thing I changed was leaving out the stew meat. And only because we find it a little too heavy with meat. Other than that I didn't change a thing! Thanks for the great recipe!
This was good but the slow cooker cooked all the beautiful color out of the beets so it looks like ham soup. I made it without the beef or tomato paste subbed veg broth and subbed cider vinegar (according to another recipe I've used). Good flavor but I'll probably stick with my other non-slow-cooker recipe.
