“This recipe I received from my mom several years ago. I am not a big fan of cabbage normally, but I LOVE this soup. It's even better the next day. And it's so easy. Perfect for a cold winter's day, wonderful with a salad and some good hot bread.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large pot, put cut-up cabbage and raw ground beef, diced onion and all ingredients EXCEPT for the tomato paste.
  2. Cover with a lid and cook over medium heat until the meat and cabbage are done. (NOTE: You do not have to drain the fat from the ground beef.) (The cabbage and beef usually get done at about the same time--if not, just cook a little longer till the cabbage is done.).
  3. Turn heat down to low, add the tomato paste and cook about 15 minutes longer.
  4. I usually add a little salt and pepper as I cook, then season again to taste when the soup is finished.
