An interesting combination I threw together one cold day after work. I enjoyed it so much I've made it a regular.

  1. Bring potatoes, onions, and water to a boil, lower heat to simmer.
  2. Add cabbage and mustard. Slowly add about 1/2 the beer (it will foam up a bit). Cover loosely. Let simmer 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Add the beans, spices, and more/all of the beer to taste. Remove lid, let simmer another 10 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Add water if necessary. Re-spice if needed before serving.

people who think this soup is dull and bland must not have senseable tastebuds this soup was the best i can't wait to make it again for my family i wish i could swim in this soup and eat it every day in the winter this soup was how the kids say it these days awesome!


I would leave out the Beans and add carrots. But it is very good!

Based on the other reviews, I decided people either love this soup or they hate it, I like cabbage and had some on hand and I decided to give a go. We all loved it! It is hearty, filling, and frugal - a great simple meal when served with buttered bread or rolls. I think the garlic powder or garlic salt is essential, though. I needed to add more at the table and it really made a difference.
