Sweet & Sour Beef-Cabbage Soup

September/October 2009

Your rating: None Average: 3.8 (216 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.

Just as advertised!

The soup was just as described with a sweet taste but a slight kick. I followed the other reviewers recommendations and added some potatoes. Also, i added a carrot (for color). The only thing i noticed was that as the savoy cabbage cooked (took longer than anticipated), the apple disintegrated.

I would make this again as it was easy and i had most of the ingredients in the pantry already.

Easy to make

Wonderful blend of flavors

I've never been much a soup person, but I love cabbage, so I was curious enough to give it a try. It's fast and easy to put together, and unbelievably tasty! Thanks to this recipe, I've finally met my soup soulmate!

Easy to make, delicious

Tasty, autumnal warmer

This is a delicious meal that we ate on our 5:2 diet fast day. A small amount is filling, so perfect for this. I live in the UK and don't have the frozen onion, pepper thing, but I just added fresh ones after roasting them a little in the oven to soften and caramelise a bit. I can see substituting or adding root veggies but haven't tried it.

Well-balanced, great way to use cabbage

Very flavorable

Tried this soup last winter and wasn't really sure if I'd like it but I couldn't stop eating it after the first bite. Looking forward to the colder weather soon to make this again and again.

We Loved It!!!!

I used a savoy cabbage and did not have caraway seeds on hand. I substituted cumin seeds - and this soup still turned out great. I also took another person's suggestion on a previous post and added 3 small potatoes I had already par-boiled. So easy -you can't fail with this recipe. Can't wait to try with caraway seeds.
I will definitely be making this again.

Easy & Quick to put together,
