1/4-1/2 head (small to med) shredded cabbage
1/2 handful lima beans

1-2 med to large potatoes, chopped
1 small to med tomato, chopped
2 three-fingered pinches finely chopped dill
a like amount of fresh finely chopped parsley
sour cream
Preparation:In a kettle combine vegetables (except the tomatoes) and butter; cover and cook over low heat for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally (don't forget to stir; scorched beets-blechhh!).

Add water, salt, garlic, pepper, lemon juice and sugar.

Cover and cook over medium-high heat 20 minutes; add tomatoes and cook an additional 1/2 hour.

If beets or potatoes are not tender, cook some more.

Sprinkle servings with dill and parsley and top with a generous dollop of sour cream.
Notes:Another recipe from my unpublished best seller-Cooking for Guys.
For a traditional Russian meal, serve with dark bread or pumpernickle, sharp cheese and a very dark beer. Finish the meal with dessert vodka (both bottles), sing some lewd songs poorly, argue politics, break all the furniture and pass out. :-)
Equipment:medium stock pot/kettle
