Borsch with lamb

Cooking Features

Despite the fact that the inclusion of mutton borscht is not typical for this dish, it is prepared using the same technology.

  • The correct borscht has a rich red color. If he has an unappetizing maroon tint, the hostess is unlikely to hear praise and compliments. Red color borscht give tomato paste with beets. When cooking this soup, it is important not to let the beets become discolored. If you put it into the boiling broth too soon, by the end of the boiling it will inevitably turn pale. Experienced cooks bring the vegetable to readiness by browning, baking or stewing, but in the soup it is laid no more than 10 minutes before the readiness.
  • The use of lemon juice, citric acid or vinegar allows the beets to retain a rich color.
  • Broth quality plays a significant role. So that it is not muddy, the foam that forms on the surface must be removed. It is recommended to boil the meat over low heat, closing the saucepan with the lid not completely, so that there is a gap for steam. Ready broth must be filtered.
  • When cooking borsch with lamb, it is advisable to use oriental spices and seasonings, then the taste of the soup will be more harmonious.
  • After the soup is infused, it becomes tastier. Do not be afraid to cook it for 2-3 days.

They serve lamb borsch as well as the traditional one: with garlic croutons, greens, sour cream. You can also fill it with adzhika.
