  1. Crumble the ground beef into a large pot. Add the diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, beef bouillon cubes, carrots, onion, vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper. Pour in 1 quart of water, and bring to a boil. Stir to break up the beef while heating. Once the soup comes to a boil, cover and simmer for 30 minutes over low heat.
  2. Pour in another quart of water, and return to a slow boil. Add garlic and cabbage. Simmer for 25 minutes, until cabbage is tender. Ladle into soup bowls to serve.

Absolutely Fabulous! I have a bumper cabbage crop this year and was exploring my options when I ran across this offering. Here are my revisions: I cut the sugar in half as recommended by others, two cans of diced tomatoes as 1 other reviewer recommended, about a pint less water, a pinch more salt and pepper and one additional beef bouillon cube. I also added a few extra veggies, cleaning out the fridge of all the little extra bits and pieces. This is definitely a keeper!

Excellent recipe. Followed other reviewer's suggestions and added 1/4 cup white vinegar for extra tang, used brown sugar instead of white, added 1 extra bouillon cube, and instead of adding another can of diced tomatoes as some suggested, added a few fresh diced tomatoes from the garden as well as the called for canned tomato sauce and canned diced tomatoes. I had to cook the cabbage longer than 25 minutes before it was tender - more like 35 min. Otherwise, I would not change this recipe.


This was just delicious. I used ground pork sausage instead of ground beef and that added a lot of flavor. We liked the sweetness, but I think I would cut the sugar back just a little bit. A delicious and hearty stew that tastes good and freezes well.
