Borscht classic recipe with meat - tricks and helpful tips
• To keep vegetables from boiling over, borsch is cooked on weak gas.
• If the meat is easily separated from the bone, then it is ready.
• If all the ingredients in the pan have already been laid, but there is enough space left to the top of the pan, you can pour a little boiled water into the broth.
• As soon as the broth boils, immediately you need to remove the foam. It is important not to miss this moment, otherwise the broth will turn out to be opaque and turbid.
• If, however, the foam is removed late, strain the broth through a fine sieve or gauze.
• Put potatoes in borsch with pork immediately, like boiling broth, with beef - half an hour after boiling.
