kcduffer...your YUMMY Cabbage Soup!

kc...Just wanted to say that I tried your DELICIOUS Cabbage Soup recipe yesterday! I ended up using more hot sauce and added in some dill. I actually cooked it in my pressure cooker. Thanks so much for posting it in the cabbage post...it so hit the spot! (For those of you who didn't catch it...I've included the recipe again below...too good to be buried in the other post!

Thanks!
Laurie

I have a favorite beef and cabbage recipe, too, that I'll pass along. It's my DH's favorite and he doesn't even know he's low carbing.

1 pound ground beef
1/2 onion, sliced
3 stalks celery, chopped, include the leaves
1 pound cabbage, I use the prepackaged slaw mix for convenience.
1 tsp hot sauce
1 tablespoon salt
4 ounces cream cheese
4 ounces grated cheddar cheese
xanthan gum if needed

Brown the ground beef in large pot. Depending on the fat in the beef, drain it.
Add the onion and celery and continue browning. Add the shredded cabbage, half a package at a time. Continue cooking.
Add the hot sauce and salt.
Add the cream cheese and cheddar cheese. Lower cooking temperature and cover. Continue stirring frequently so it doesn't stick.
If needed, add xanthan gum to thicken. Sometimes I don't need it and sometimes I do.

Thanks, I'm glad you liked it. Actually, we consider it more like a casserole than soup around our house. It's what's for dinner tonight.

I was wondering about adding liquid. I am making this right now in the crock pot and was madly searching the board to see if I left off adding water to it. I'll let you know how it turns out.

Sorry, Heather...just seeing this now (probably after you've already made it). But I actually believe that I added some beef broth until it was "soup" consistency. It really is a tasty recipe!

This is a hardy and economical winter dish by kcduffer. Thanks for making this a new thread underHiswing. At first I thought I was making a soup, but then it turned out to be a yummy casserole. The only thing I added was an Indian bay leaf since I have a large bag of them and I am always trying to find ways to use them. I cooked it in the crock pot and added the cheeses at the end. This is a keeper.

I definitely agree Heather...KC's original recipe as a casserole is great! I just decided one time to make it into a soup for a little twist!

This is great stuff!
We prefer it as a Soup too (adding in a can of Beef Broth)..cause its COLD here now, and hot soup is so comforting.
Instead of Xanthan, (before adding in the creamcheese and cheese).. I remove about a cupful of the cooked veggie/meat stuff and give it a *whirr* with a Stick Blender.....then put that thick "slurry" back into the pot, stir it in...

Thanks for this good idea!

I made this yesterday..and it was fabulous!!! I cooked the whole thing in
a big skillet, then put 2 (15 ounce) cans of beef broth in my crockpot and added the meat/veggies to that and let it simmer all afternoon..

For the cheese..I was a little leery of cheddar stringing up..so I used shredded Velvetta..

This is a wonderful recipe..DH loved it.

Carolyn, the cheddar does not string up for me. This recipe is a staple in our house over the winter. For me, this is a quick, throw it together in a hurry meal.

I'm really glad to hear that everyone is enjoying this recipe with all of it's variations.

Made this for dinner last night, as a casserole not soup. DH loved it as is. I, on the other hand, think it needs something? but what? May try a pinch of garlic next time just to see how it helps.

Garlic would be good to add to anything. I've also added cumin to this recipe too.
