Winter Borscht

Yield:  4 to 6 servings
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 45 minutes


  • 8 cups beef broth
  • 4 large beets, peeled and chopped
  • 2 large russet potatoes, peeled, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 2 cups thinly sliced cabbage
  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. Put the broth, beets and potatoes in a large heavy-bottomed pot and bring it to a boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer.
  2. Cover and cook until the vegetables are just tender, about 20 minutes. Uncover and stir in the cabbage and red wine vinegar.
