This is just like my mom's recipe, except for the potatoes and sometimes she's using kielbasa instead of bacon. I liked the addition of potatoes and it was perfect for a cold winter evening. Made it with the dill weed.
Oh Julesong, this was so tasty! I have always loved cabbage soup and this was really wonderful! Added caraway seeds to mine and made the way you posted. We don't have a crockpot here at the home so we made it on top of the stove. Served sour cream on the side along with extra bacon for garnish. The residents that tasted it kept saying -- this is so good, does it have beans? The residents are so used to eating only Cuban foods or Cuban type foods that every time we introduce something new they try & guess what is in it. Thank you for a fun meal, which was delicious! Can't wait to make it again, Diane :)
Yummmm...I cut up our leftover pork chops and added to soup.
This was gone in a second, and we wanted more! I think I have to make it in barrels next time. Delicious Polish comfort food. Thank you!
I made this soup tonight. Was sceptic but decided to give it a try because I had all the ingreidients on hand (had a cabbage for over a month in the fridge and could not decide what to do with it). I followed general direction with some alternation. I used already cooked and crumbled bacon. I added 2 more cups of chicken broth. I used pressure cooker instead of slow cooker: saute onions and bacon bits in pressure cooker, added cubed potatoes, broth and chopped small cabbage, bring to boil, close cover, wait until pressure monitor is activated, lower heat to medium, cook under pressure for 10 minutes, take off the heat, let the pressure to fall by itself. Soup was ready under 20 minutes and it tasted fantastic. Who knew cabage can be this tasty?! Thanks for posting your discovery.
Very good soup and comfort food. I did add some thinly sliced smoked sausage and served with pumpernickel bread. Perfect cold weather meal!
We have made this a few times since Julesong first came up with it. And I thought I didn't like cabbage! I do like this soup, a lot. It is especially good with kielbasa slices.
