What a surprisingly delicious soup -- as much as I love cabbage, I was still surprised at how good this stew is. It's almost addictive -- hard to believe it's good for you too!

I was very happy to find this recipe. I had lots of cabbage to use and just under 1 lb of leftover beef roast, and I wanted to use them together. This was perfect! I halved the recipe (because I only had about .75 lb of beef). I cut my roast into chunks. I simmered everything in the pot and added the beef last. I did add some thyme, and omitted the optional raisins. I will make this again; thanx for sharing the recipe.
