This was delicious, I wasnt sure what the 'liquid reserved' for the tomatoes meant in the directions, I just used the whole tin of tomatoes anyway, and I added a chopped red onion. Was a filling tasty dinner, loved the addition of the kidney beans. Thanks for posting. =)

Super easy and super delicious. I might substitute cooked brown rice for the beans next time to make it a "stuffed cabbage"-type soup, but it was excellent with the beans as well. I'm looking forward to having the leftovers for lunch today!

Awesome!! I changed a few things. First I added an chopped onion while frying the ground beef. Then 4 cups beef broth & 2 cups water, 2 beef bouillon cubes. Doubled all spices plus 2 T. worcestershire sauce & 3/4 head of cabbage. I also omitted the beans to keep it low carb. So hearty and good! will make often.

This was a really nice cabbage soup which my family enjoyed a lot. I used fresh garlic and added an extra can of diced tomatoes with about a 1/4 cup ketchup for flavor since I was out of beef bouillon. Toward the end, I decided it still needed something so I added about 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar for some tang. Just what it needed!

We really enjoyed this! I did make a few changes to the recipe...after cooking the beef, I added some sliced carrots and chopped onion and sauteed for a bit then added the tomatoes and cooked another few minutes. Then I added all the spices and substituted chicken broth for 3 c. of the water; used last c. of water to rinse the tomato can out really well. I also used napa cabbage and added in the last 1/2 hour. I omitted the beans this time (only because I felt like it). Will definitely make again! We LOVED it!

Very good, like several others I added an onion into the mix and used 3 cloves of garlic and some red pepper flakes for some heat. I used fire roasted tomatoes and added some smoked paprika as well. Veggies were good and still had a little bite to them after an hour!

This recipe was very good. I threw in some mixed vegetables but it was very filling and I will be eating this for at least a week as I made way too much. I just started my diet today so this will be my lunch for a while. Thanks.

The recipe, made as directed had way too much garlic, it overtakes the flavor of the soup, and there just wasn't enough liquid that soup needs, so our altered recipe used 1 tsp of minced garlic, no garlic salt or powder. We added 1/2 tin of tomato paste, and for the beef we used 8 teaspoons of beef bovril, yield 4 cups of broth. We also added in 1 1/2 teaspoons of Worcestershire sauce and salt to taste. I gave the recipe 4 stars just because we had to make so many adjustments to the original recipe, but with the adjustments, this is a soup we will make again and again, so thanks very much for posting the recipe.
