While cooking the broth, it’s time to do the vegetables. Vegetables wash, peel and decompose into two parts. Some will be crumbled in the soup raw – cabbage and potatoes. Other beets, and carrots – need to pre-stew.
Peeled beets and carrots grate on a coarse grater, mix lightly fry in vegetable oil, and tormented under the lid until ready. Look, how’s the broth. Meat ready yet? Nothing steamed vegetables can wait in the pan.
