  1. In a large saucepan cook pork, onion, fennel seeds, sage and pepper about 10 minutes or until pork is browned and onion is tender, stirring to break up pork as it cooks. Drain off fat if necessary.
  2. Add broth, beer and carrots. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 5 minutes. Add cabbage. Cook, covered, about 5 minutes more or until carrots and cabbage are tender.
