Recipe Ingredients for ZELENYI borstch

10 cups water
200 g fresh sorrel, cut into strips
1 cup onion, chopped
3 cups potatoes, peeled and cubed
3 hard boiled eggs, quartered lengthwise
2 tbsp minced cilantro
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1/2 tbsp butter
1 salt and pepper to taste
5 tbsp sour cream
300 g g Beef, Top Sirloin

Recipe Directions for ZELENYI borstch

Saute onions in oil and butter until deep golden in color, about 15 minutes. Bring stock to a simmer and add potatoes. Simmer, covered, until the potatoes are cooked through, about 20 minutes. Remove the potatoes with a slotted spoon, mash them coarsely (they should still be in tiny little pieces, not pureed), and return to the stock. Add onions. Adjust salt and pepper. When the stock comes to a simmer once more, add the sorrel, let simmer for 3 minutes, then take off heat, stir in cilantro, and serve immediately. (Keep in mind that sorrel overcooks very quickly). Place one or two egg quarters in each bowl before pouring the soup. Serve with sour cream on the side.
