This recipe was ok, very hearty but the caraway seeds were overwhelming. I would cut back on those, and maybe increase the paprika and a little more broth.
Sweet & Sour Beef-Cabbage Soup
From EatingWell: September/October 2009
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.

This recipe is a keeper. It is very nutritious, low-calorie, and tasty due to the wonderful flavor combinations and ground beef.
I did not have the frozen bell pepper and onion mix, so just used 2.5 cups of chopped onions, green and red bell peppers instead. And the only apple I had was Macintosh, so I just used that. Anyway this recipe turned out great, highly recommended.
This was quick, easy & delicious! Next time, however, I'll eliminate or cut back on the apple amount and rely on the little bit of honey for its sweetness. A winner!
Was delish and so easy! Next time, however, I may eliminate or cut back on the apple for a less sweet bite and rely instead on that little bit of honey.
I made this soup with a few modifications and it was amazing! I added some carrots, mushrooms and used fresh Yummy peppers (very sweet) and fresh red onion. I also used low-salt broth and low salt stewed tomatoes and Napa Cabbage. To enhance the German flavor, I also grated in a bit of fresh ginger. I cooked it about 2 hours longer than the recipe required. That helped intensify the flavor without added salt.
The one thing I did do that I now regret is adding some Ditalini pasta. The pasta absorbed too much broth even though I added it at the very end. I suggest that pasta be cooked separately and added at serving time.
