Sweet & Sour Beef-Cabbage Soup

September/October 2009

Your rating: None Average: 3.8 (195 votes)

This wholesome sweet-and-sour soup combines beef, caraway seeds, sweet paprika and cabbage—ingredients that star in a number of German dishes. It is particularly nice served with crusty rye bread. For an even heartier soup, add diced cooked potatoes along with the cabbage.

"Awesome! It's filling, tasty and both of us love it. Have had it several times and it's a keeper. "

We LOVED this soup. I'm on a strict "no white" diet but thought my husband needed some starch of some kind so I served his soup over fresh cooked wide noodles. The soup is delicious on it's own however.
This is really a keeper of a recipe.


I took this for our "soup & bread" supper at church tonight, then had to come home, look up the recipe so I could print a STACK of them. EVERYONE wanted the recipe ! ! ! The only thing I did different was to use fresh onion & pepper and added an extra apple.


Easy and adaptable! Didn't have bell peppers so used mostly cabbage. Turned out fantastic, can't wait to make it again.


For some reason I accidentally put in chicken broth but the soup was still super-delicious! I ground up the caraway seeds since I don't like the texture of them whole and used fresh red bell pepper and onion. I didn't think I would like the apple but in this soup it added a great sweet bite!


So easy and cheap when you do the math- i used 4 cups beef broth and 2 cups water to cut back on the sodium and i figured with all the great spices would make up for it, which they did! the caraway seeds are fantastic! (and so good for you) and very quick to make.
