- Add remainder of ingredients and let cook for about 20 minutes on a low flame.

Yes, that sounds good -- but rather than saying large pot of water, I would suggest, more specifically, water to cover the beef bones. We also add dill to our Borsht but no zucchini, broccoli or cauliflower, just beets and cabbage. And we serve it ...moreauntybea in Vernon loved it

This is a good version of borscht. I am originally from Russia, and that's about how I make it, except I add chopped potatoes and actual beef meat, rather than bones. I am pleasantly surprised to see people in other countries enjoying this soup!juels in Clayton loved it
