It’s a bit ridiculous how easy it is to make this Beef and Cabbage Soup. You literally just throw a bunch of things in a pot, then wait about an hour and you’ve got a bowl of just about the best soup you’ll ever have. There’s something about the combination of ingredients that makes this soup absolutely awesome. The smell of it cooking will fill your kitchen and create a Pavlovian reaction in your mouth, it smells incredible.
Love cabbage and easy recipes? My cabbage roll casserole recipe is super popular and tastes just like traditional cabbage rolls. And as far as soups go, my iconic Greek lemon chicken soup is fantastic.
This is a recipe I got from my mother years ago, and I crave it often in the winter when I don’t want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen but I want a comforting, hearty bowl of soup. Seriously, if you’ve yet to make this, you really need to try it. I promise you’ll be hooked from the first spoonful.
The prep time on this soup is only about 15 minutes, then you let it simmer for about an hour so it’s super easy (and hearty enough) for a quick weeknight meal. It yields quite a bit – I would say enough for 6 – 8 people.
