Cooking Kiev borsch:
Step 1: prepare brown bread for beet kvass.
We spread black bread on a cutting board and use a knife to cut into medium slices. The crushed component is moved to the middle pan and left aside for a while.

Pour the pot with beets and brown bread in clear, cool water. Using a tablespoon, mix everything thoroughly until smooth. After this, kvass should be infused 2 days. For example, during the day it will need to be left in the sun and hidden at night in a warm place. On the third day, filter the liquid through a sieve into another clean saucepan and we can begin cooking the borsch.
Step 4: prepare the beans.
Put the beans in a small bowl and rinse well under running water. Then again, fill with cool liquid so that it completely covers the component, and leave aside to insist for 3-4 hours.
Step 5: prepare the beef.
Thoroughly rinse the beef under running water to wash off the bone fragments, and put it on a cutting board. If necessary, with the help of a knife, we clean the flesh from the veins and films. Then we move the component into a clean small bowl and start preparing other products for cooking borsch.

Rinse the lamb well under running water and put it on a cutting board. With a knife, we clean the meat from veins, films and fat, and then cut into small pieces. Move the component into a free small bowl.

Step 9: prepare the roots of parsley and celery.
Using a knife, peel the roots and rinse slightly under running water. Then put the components on a cutting board and grind with straws. Attention: You can also use a coarse grater for this. Pour finely chopped roots into a clean plate.
Step 10: prepare the onion.
Using a knife, peel the onion from the husk and rinse thoroughly under running water. Spread the component on a cutting board and cut into 4 parts. One piece We leave it aside, since it will still be useful to us, and the rest - chopped with squares and pour into a free plate.
Step 11: prepare the tomato puree.
We wash the tomatoes under running water and put it on a cutting board. Using a knife, we cut off the place to which the tail was attached, and then grind the component with medium segments.
Meanwhile, add a little melted butter to the pan and put on medium heat. When the contents of the container heats well, put the pieces of tomatoes here. From time to time, stirring with a wooden spatula, fry the component a little. Immediately after that, turn off the burner and set the pan aside.
When the tomatoes have cooled, wipe them through a sieve into a deep bowl. We get real mashed potatoes without peel and seeds.
Step 12: prepare a dressing of bacon, parsley and onion.
We spread the fat on a cutting board and finely chop into pieces. We move the component into the blender bowl and proceed to the preparation of the greens.
We rinse the parsley under running water, shake off excess liquid and put it on a cutting board. Grind the component with a knife and immediately pour it into a common container.
At the end, put the remaining onion on a flat surface and cut into small cubes. Pour it into a container with other components and rub at an average speed until a homogeneous mass is formed.

Using a knife, peel the potatoes and rinse thoroughly under running water. Spread the component on a cutting board and cut into medium pieces. Then we move the chopped vegetable into a clean bowl and fill it with ordinary cold water so that the liquid completely covers it.

We clean the cabbage from the top coarsened leaves and rinse slightly under running water. Then put the component on a cutting board and, using a knife, finely chop. Pour the chopped vegetable into the medium bowl and leave it aside for now.

We spread the sour apples on a cutting board and use a knife to cut into two parts. From each we remove the core and then grind into slices. Finely chopped components are transferred to a clean plate.
Step 16: prepare the beef broth.
Pour clean cold water into a large pot and put on medium heat. To start boiling the liquid faster, we cover the container with a lid. Immediately after this, pour the beet kvass and beef here. Attention: when foam begins to form on the surface of the liquid, be sure to remove it with a slotted spoon. Now we reduce the fire, cover everything with a lid and cook the broth for 2-2.5 hours until the meat is ready. 30-40 minutes until the end we spread allspice with peas and bay leaves in a pan.

Tentatively in 30 minutes until the broth is ready, we pour half of the vegetable oil into a clean pan and put on medium heat.

When the broth is ready, with the help of a fork we take out beef from it and put it on a cutting board. Carefully separate the meat from the bone and chop it into pieces with a knife. Immediately after that, return the beef back to the pan with the broth and add the beans here (such a component should be cooked for 30-40 minutes, so be sure to consider this time).
Now put the potatoes in a container. As soon as the broth begins to boil again, immediately pour the shredded cabbage and chopped sour apples into it. After that, cook the borscht for 10-15 minutes.
After the allotted time, carefully add fried lamb with beets, sautéed vegetables, as well as dressing from lard, parsley and onions to the pan. In addition, pour salt to taste, mix everything thoroughly with a tablespoon and reduce heat. As soon as the borsch is boiling, cover it with a lid and cook for another 15-20 minutes.
