Borscht is a soup that is very popular in many Eastern and Central European countries. It is made with beetroot, which gives it it’s signature reddish-purple jewel color. Different countries have their own variations of borscht; Russian borscht is made with some type of beef or sausage. I am making mine with both; Using both meats gives the soup superb flavor. This is a true Russian classic.
