Homemade green borsch, the secret of cooking. Step by step recipe

  1. The first thing to start is the broth. To do this, take a deep pan, for example, a five-liter one. We collect water a little more than half.
  2. Take a leg of turkey, pork or beef tongue, wash it thoroughly under running water.
  3. We send the prepared meat to the pan.
  4. We peel the onions and carrots from the peel, send them to the pan to the meat as a whole, without cutting it. Cover and place on the stove. Bring to a boil over medium heat, then reduce heat, add salt. Cook the meat and tongue until cooked.
  5. Boil chicken eggs in a separate pan
  6. After the meat and tongue are cooked, remove the lid and remove the onions and carrots. We will no longer need them.
  7. We take meat and tongue out of the pan. Allow time to cool slightly.
  8. Meanwhile, cut the potatoes and eggs into small cubes. The number of potatoes and eggs is determined independently, depending on the size of the pan or the number of servings of borsch.
  9. My fresh sorrel under running water, cut off the stems. We cut so that we get thin stripes. You can use canned sorrel, but keep in mind that the soup with it will be slightly acidic and more salty, therefore, when cooking the broth, salt should be added a little less.
  10. Now, using a knife and fork, we separate the turkey meat from the bone, cut into small pieces. The size of the pieces is determined by yourself, as you like best. We send back to the pan.
  11. From the cooled tongue we cut off the skin. We also cut, like meat, into small pieces. You can also get a hot tongue out of the pan and immediately place it under running cold water. Then it will be much easier to peel off.
  12. Put the meat, tongue and potatoes back into the pan. Cover and cook until potatoes are ready.
  13. Then add the chopped eggs and sorrel. Cook over low heat for about ten minutes. It is necessary that the sorrel boil and give the borsch a beautiful green color.
  14. Turn off the fire, the soup is ready.
  15. Pour on plates in portions. We decorate our borsch with chopped greens. You can add sour cream.
