    galponetta's Note:

    This soup is simple and cheap to make, and a favorite comfort food in my family. My mother got the recipe from a former employer and friend, and passed it along to me. It is not a highly flavored soup, so feel free to add extra seasoning if you are eating it as a main dish. The cracked black pepper and fresh lemon juice are important to the flavor of the dish. I usually add extra raisins because I like them so well.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Brown the beef in in large dutch oven or stock pot over medium high heat.
    2. 2
      After a few minutes, add the onion, and continue cooking until the onions are transparent, and most of the pink is gone from the meat, about 10 minutes total.
    3. 3
      Drain any excess grease from the meat and onions, and return to the pan.
    4. 4
      Add the cabbage and 1/4 cup of the water, cover, and cook over medium heat until the cabbage is limp and getting tender, but still holds its shape, stirring occasionally, about 15 minutes.
    5. 5
      Add the remaining ingredients, and simmer until the vegetables in the soup are as tender as you would like, about 30 minutes.
    6. 6
      Serve with additional lemon juice and fresh ground pepper, to taste.
    7. 7
      Like many soups, this is much better the second day after the flavors have a chance to blend.

      It was okay. I thought the broth was too watery and too sweet, but I liked the other ingredients. I used beef cubes instead of ground beef and I cooked them on my George Foreman grill instead of cooking them in the soup.

      I prepare this soup without the beef, to make it parve (vegan). I have also eliminated the honey and added a few more raisins. My family loves this, especially on a cold day!

      Outstanding soup/stew and very hearty! I made a few minor changes to this recipe based on what I had on hand and also to help clean out the veggie drawer by using ground chicken instead of beef and 1 can of Rotel tomatoes (10 ounce can) and 1 (8 ounce can) tomato sauce. i also added 1 jalapeno, 1 parsnip and some frozen green peas. Wonderful and very flavorful with some heat from the jalapenos. Yumm! Thanks for sharing!
