      I just love this soup. The method of cooking the beef gives this soup such depth of flavor and the saurekraut gives it a little zing. I have been making this recipe for years and always look forward to the cold months when I can make it again.

      Have spent a good part of the week simmering beef bones and meaty short ribs, freezing the stock and soups to have on hand when it gets time to get gardening. Made for the perfect time to make your Cabbage Soup. This is so like one I remember except we used vinegar - happy to once again find a recipe and have it on paper. Made as posted - the sauerkraut and cabbage making for a wonderfully delicious hearty old fashioned soup - one that makes for seconds. Made as posted and wouldn't change a thing. Thank you ladyfingers for sharing this Country cookbook recipe that has been added to my soup collection.

      This is probably the first soup recipe I ever made ... and that was at least 40+ years ago. This is constantly satisfying and a go-to recipe when you want a little something off the grid. I also add some kielbasa to add another dimension. Just LOVE this soup! Add a dollop of sour cream or Greek yogurt when serving. Simply divine!
