  1. To a large pot (I use 8qts), add the meat and enough water to fill up the pot to halfway.
  2. Remove all froth that comes up from the meat.
  3. Continue to boil on med-high until no more froth comes up.
  4. Reduce heat to low and add consomme mix, whole onion, dill, beats, cabbage, and tomato sauce.
  5. Fill with water, cover partially with lid, and let cook for 90min.
  6. After that hour and a half of cooking, make sure meat is soft - then add the carrots, and squeeze all the juice you can possible juice from the lemons into the soup.
  7. You can add the rice and/or potatoes at this point, if you like.
  8. Cook, partially covered, for another 30-45 minutes, until making sure the potatoes and carrots are tender, and the rice (if you put any in) is ready.
  9. The soup is great on day 1, but tastes much better on days 2-3.
  10. Enjoy the soup while it's very hot.
