Bohunk Days Chez Sheena

Long weekend Sunday Chez Sheena means Borscht. A leisurely stroll through St. Lawrence Market in Toronto on Saturday, fondling the ripe plentiful bounty of Ontario's farms... strong phallic corn cobs, firm rounded b-cup sized beets, sturdy sensible potatoes and the dill from my very own box.

Oh. and lame-o packaged carrots I found at the back of the fridge and had to use up fast. And an onion.

Slice up the onion & carrot and lightly sautee in some olive oil until a bit tender but not fully cooked.

I had a leftover steak from the other night so threw it in for real beef goodness and so as not to be wasteful.

Pretend you are a Greyhound bus passenger.

Chop beets, potato into 1"ish cubes and throw into the onion & carrot mix. Add the steak. Add about 10 cups of water and enough powered beef stock for the amount of water (depending on what stock mix you use... I am not a powder snob with beef stock, but detest powdered chicken stock). Go figure.

Even threw in the nibletized corn from the 2 leftover cobs from the Rib Fest on Saturday. Was a surprisingly fantastic decision. The sweetness of the corn really nicely matched the beet sweet. Will do this again.

Lots leftover. Call me.

I saw purple carrots at the St Lawrence Market on Saturday but I was too racist to buy them.
