1/1 Photo of Kohlsuppe - Cabbage Soup
3 hrs 15 mins
This afternoon I put some broth and cabbage into the crockpot, and when my husband came home he said, "That smells good, what is it?" I chuckled. "Just cabbage in broth. That's it." He hmmm'ed. "You need to come up with some German name for it, instead. Cabbage in broth just won't do." So I looked up what it would be in German, found some similar recipes online, fiddled with the contents of the crockpot a bit, and here's what we had for dinner! :) Really simple, and very tasty! This is a Pantry Challenge recipe, using ingredients that were already on hand at home.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Put the chopped cabbage and the broth in the crockpot, on high; simmer for 1 1/2 hours.
- 2In a sauté pan, cook the bacon slices until crisp; remove, chop roughly, and set aside.
- 3Sauté the onion in the bacon drippings until soft.
- 4Add the chopped bacon, onion, potato, and salt and pepper to the crockpot.
- 5Cook on high for an additional 1 to 1 1/2 hours hours, until the cabbage reaches the texture you prefer.
- 6Serve with a dollop of sour cream.
- 7Notes: would also be good with some dill weed or caraway added, or even kielbasa slices, if you like; I also added a 1 once cube of concentrated frozen duck stock, but as most folks don't have it in their freezer I didn't include it in the ingredient list; you could simmer this in a heavy pot on the stove for an hour instead of the crockpot, too.
