Grass-Fed Beef Borscht

Paleo On The Go

Posted on March 25 2016

Borscht with meat is the best type of Borscht, especially if that meat is grass-fed beef! Borscht is a soup found throughout Eastern European cultures and is made primarily with beets. This recipe calls for bacon fat, which gives it an extra punch of flavor- you can't go wrong with bacon fat, right? This dish can be served warm or cold.
