Recipe by Chef John
"It was this soup that started my lifelong love of adding sour cream to things. The way the tangy, rich cream melts into the hot, beefy broth is a wonder to behold."

On a serious note-
Thank you for all of your wonderful recipes.
When I made this it was my first time making or trying borscht. It was absolutely incredible! I ate everything in my bowl and then went back for seconds, and even my husband enjoyed eating it (a MAJOR accomplishment!) And the leftovers are equally good.
Great recipe. I love beets and this is a winner! I totally agree with
Sundances review. Amen. Thank you, Chef John. Gingy1
