    Cabbage and Beef Soup

    Mike Henderson did such a fine job with his recipes I almost feel embarrassed to post one of my favorite soup recipes without any pictures. You'll just have to take Big Mike's word that it is delicious and easy to make. This is a complete meal in a bowl. Enjoy!

    Cabbage and Beef Soup

    1-1 pounds lean ground beef
    t garlic salt
    t garlic powder
    t pepper
    2 celery stalks, chopped
    1 can (16 oz) kidney beans, un-drained
    medium head cabbage, chopped
    1 can (28 oz) crushed tomatoes
    1 tomato can water
    4 beef bouillon cubes

    In a Dutch oven, brown beef. Pour off grease. Add all remaining ingredients; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 1 hour. Garnish with parsley, if desired.
    Yield: 3 quarts Freezes well.

    Well Mike, I just happen to have all of those ingredients on hand. I may just have to make it (probably Wednesday).

    Sounds yummy.

    I am glad you enjoyed it Jim. It is one of our favorites particularly in the winter. Easy to make too!

    Man that sounds good!

    So good in fact, that I have a batch simmering right now.

    It's VERY easy to do and I'm sure it's going to be great. I made one minor tweek though. I had half of a medium yellow onion in the fridge that was just begging to be used. So I diced it up and put it in while browning the beef. Should be a nice little kick.

    Will report later on.
    (with more "reports" in the not too distant future I'm sure)

    A little onion can only make it better!

    My wife does a cabbage soup similar... she uses Kilbasa polish sausage for the meat, and new red potatoes in place of the beans... but every thing else is about the same... that soup and a pan of corn bread and I'm a happy camper.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.

    FANTASTIC!!!

    Just finished TWO big bowls. Chuck, it's funny you said that. When picking up the fixin's for the soup today, I grabbed a box of Saltines. But about just before the soup was ready, I thought about what might be better than crackers. I came up with Corn Bread. I got the cast iron skillet out and made up a nice batch. It went VERY well with this soup!

    The only thing is that I'm a bit concerned what the atmosphere is going to be like around here in a little while. With both cabbage and beans in the same soup, it's going to be interesting.

    Oh well, it'll be worth it.
