Cabbage Soup With Kielbasa

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 25 mins

This is an easy, delicious and comforting soup. You can use a can of sauerkraut, drained and well rinsed, in place of the cabbage if you wish. Also, get the broth mixture going and then add the sliced and diced veggies right into the pot as you prepare them. Pumpernickel bread is great with this.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat the broth, beer, tomatoes with their juice and bay leaf to a boil in a Dutch oven over high heat. Add the cabbage, potato, onion, carrot, kielbasa, thyme and caraway.
  2. Heat to a boil; reduce heat to medium. Partially cover the pot. Cook till the potato and carrot are tender, about 15 minutes. Add salt, if needed, and pepper.

This was good and easy. Used the rest of the cabbage that I had for stuffed cabbage rolls. I used canned broth and used the whole can rather than just the 1 qt. and used the whole bottle of beer. It was great, husband said this recipe is a keeper.

Delish...I did saute the onions and keilbasa with a little garlic first, then added the remaining ingredients. Good hearty soup. Will definitely be making this again. Thank you for sharing this recipe. :)

Excellent! Pretty much a full meal in a soup. I used light smoked turkey sausage. After reading the recipe intro, I liked the idea of using sauerkraut, so I used both..... a 1/2 head of cabbage and a small can of sauerkraut. Thanx for sharing. I'll make this again.
