Pork Borsch

There is nothing like a delicious beetroot soup to warm you up this winter.

This is such an easy hearty meal and a great way to feed the whole family. The first step is to dice up your vegetables and pop them into your pot. Then add your delicious pork, herbs and add water. You can use a number of juicy pork cuts so don't be afraid to experiment. The next step is to cook your soup for around 45 minutes to 1 hour. Then strain the stock into another pot and then peel and grate your beetroot. Once your beetroot is ready, add everything back into your original pot and throw in some baked beans, tomato sauce and diced sausage. There you have it, a delicious borsch!
