Cabbage Soup -- Quick & Easy

READY IN: 2hrs 20mins
Recipe by Chicagoland Chef du

A very tasty and tummy warming recipe given to me several years ago. Once the ground beef is cooked, this can all get dumped into the crock pot. UPDATE 3/09 I added a 1/2 t of dried thyme to round out the flavor.

I made this recipe on 1/18/12 for our dinner.And due to what I had on hand, a few changes were made to the recipe and they are as follows.Instead of the canned beans, the same amount of leftover white beans were used. I didn't have a 28 ounce can of tomatoes,so 2 14.5 ounce cans were used. And to give the beef a bit more flavor,the onion was added as the beef was browning.About 1 1/2 hours into the cooking time a " Quality Taste Test " was done and I realized I forgot to add the garlic,so I added about a teaspoon or so of garlic powder.And at that time I also added another 3/4 teaspoon of chili powder.This recipe turned out to be a " Keeper ". Thanks for posting and " Keep Smiling : ) "
