Croatian Cabbage Soup With Pork

Croatian Cabbage Soup With Pork created by Janie Hackathorn

Braised pork bits and shredded cabbage in a mildly spicy broth. Amazingly sweet and flavorful -- and even better reheated the next day. LOW- Carb, too! Thank you to my friend Tanja for sharing this recipe! I use a tablespoon of Kryddman Swedish spice (when I have it) in place of the dry spices listed but these will work just as well! Freezes well for a healthy make-ahead meal! Note: I use organic ingredients (optional).

  • Trim and debone pork, retain bones, cut meat into bite size strips, rinse away bone fragments and pat dry.
  • In large soup pan, sauté garlic in half of the olive oil until hot.
  • Remove pan from heat to add pork bones and meat to hot oil. Sear meat and bones on med-high heat until juices flow, scraping and turning to evenly brown (Approximately 10 minutes).
  • Add shredded cabbage, along with remaining olive oil. Stir continuously and cook until cabbage wilts and caramelizes slightly. (Approximately 15 min.).
  • Add broth and spices and bring to a boil. Stir well and reduce heat to low. Simmer for approximately 1 to 2 hours (to desired tenderness).
  • Remove bones and serve immediately (or refrigerate and reheat).

    This soup is delish. I had slow cooked a pork butt in the crock pot and used the cooking liquid which cut down on the amount of chicken/beef stock needed. I did caramelize the cabbage and some onion then proceeded as written. A very good, healthy dinner! A little homemade beer bread on the side is a nice touch.
