  1. In a large saucepan, place ribs, carrots, mushrooms and beetroot. Cover well with water and simmer 1 hour. In a separate saucepan, simmer the beans and cabbage together until beans are done.
  2. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a frypan and saute the tomatoes until soft.
  3. To the soup, add the cooked beans, cabbage and tomatoes. Stir and continue simmering over low heat, 10 minutes.
  4. Mix together the bacon, parsley, dill and grated onion, then add to the soup. Simmer 10 minutes more.
  5. Remove the meat from the pork ribs and return to the soup. Simmer 10 minutes. Just before serving, add the smoked sausage to heat through. Serve with quartered hard boiled eggs, if you like.
