Recipe from my russian/german great grandmother. Recipe from my russian/german great grandmother.
Number of Servings: 32


    2 boxes of 32oz beef broth
    2.2 lbs stew meat
    4 cups beet greens
    4 cups celery
    10 oz shredded carrots
    2 cups chopped green beans
    1 large can diced tomatoes
    4 cups of cooked peeled beets
    10 oz heavy whipping cream
    1 package (about 10 sprigs) of fresh dill
    4 cups of potatoes
    4 cups of cabbage
    1 large onion
    celery salt
    onion powder
    beef bouillion


makes 32 1 cup servings

I take the beef, onion and 1 box of beef broth and put it in the crockpot overnight so it can get nice and tender, I also add a little onion powder and pepper.

The next day I chop up all the ingredients... I boil the beets for a while to cook them a bit, and throw it all except the cream into the pot. I add bouillion, celery seed/salt, and other seasoning to taste.

Cook slowly until all the vegetables are soft then add cream. It is usually an orangish color at first, but kept in the fridge overnight it turns a gorgeous pink and tastes even better.

My great grandmother (who turned 91 this year) taught me to make this when I was little, the only thing different is she uses a soup bone, and I don't know where to get one so I use the crock pot to make the meat tender.
