Found this in a Taste of Home Magazine Oct/Nov 2004 Issue My family loves this dish, especially in the winter time. Great comfort food

I made this last night with only two small changes: cilantro instead of parsley (because I prefer the taste), and used 1/2 tbsp white sugar instead of brown (because I didn't have any). However, it didn't turn out too well. I don't know if I just had extra sweet cabbage and/or tomatoes, but I felt that this ended up being way too sweet for a soup, at least for my taste. I also thought it could use more beans and possibly some broth because it turned out to have more of a goulash texture (really chunky) instead of a soup or stew.
