"Delicious, hearty soup full of cabbage, carrots, ground beef and onions. Tomato base and just the right amount of spices. Wonderful served with crusty home-made bread. Try with Rye Bread!"

Ready In:
3hrs 30mins




  • Chop onion, cabbage, carrots and celery. Saute in 2 tbsp olive oil. (Do not brown!) Just saute till the vegetables are tender. Remove to Large Pot.
  • Use same pan as above and cook ground beef (you may substitute ground turkey) then drain off fat. Add to Pot.
  • Add remaining ingredients and stir well. (I pinch the fennel seed and caraway seed between my fingers to slightly break open the seeds instead of throwing in whole seeds.)
  • Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer. Simmer for 3-4 hours till all vegetables are very tender. Serve with a crusty bread. Enjoy!

  1. This was a wonderful dish. I just loved the flavors. Very quick to put together and let simmer on the stove. The only thing I did different was to just add one can of tomato paste and not two. I would definitely make this soup again. I loved the nice tomato flavor with the nice sweet taste of the brown sugar. Great mix of flavors. Thanks so much for posting this recipe chefRD....totally enjoyed by us all
  2. A delicious soup! All of the ingredients blend well together for an awesome flavor! Easy to prepare. Prepared as a participant of 2008 Spring PAC and Spring 2008 Photo Forum Events.


<p>Greatest of all, I am a Mom! The true miracle in my life so far is my beautiful daughter, Emily Rose. She is the joy of my life. My husband and I were blessed after nine years of marriage to finally be able to have her. I am also an artist. I love to paint with acrylics and I also use colored pencils. Perfectionist is my middle name. I am passionate about cooking. I love to cook for my daughter (who at almost three years old is not the easiest to please at the moment) and my husband, Tim. I have been more excited about cooking since discovering Recipezaar. It makes cooking and shopping for the ingredients easier. I just started adding some of my favorite recipes to the site and can't wait to see if anyone tries them. Keeping my fingers crossed that I get "good" reviews. <br /><br /><img alt="" src="" /> <br /><br /><img alt="Photobucket" src="" border="0" /></p>
