I know. I know.

Another soup recipe!!

I ‘m sorry friends but I just can’t help it!

I’ve been on this soup kick for over a month now and thankfully for me, there is no end in sight!

Now that the temps are much cooler and winter is right around the bend, I have a feeling soup is going to be a staple meal in our house for the next few months.

But I promise I won’t share all the recipes I’m testing.

Just the ones that are SUPER delish.

Like this cabbage and beef soup!

I don’t know what it is about this soup but every time I eat it I just feel….GOOD!

And that’s saying something because frankly friends, I’m not a huge cabbage fan.

Especially cooked cabbage.

But in this soup…..oh my!

And did I say how easy it was to put together?


Well, it is.

The ‘hearty’ part comes from the ground beef. You just have to brown it along with some onion and fresh garlic. I usually do this in the same pot as I’m making the soup but this time I was frying the beef up in batches for other freezer meals as well.

Once the ground beef is browned, I simply drained off the grease and set it aside.

Now it’s time for all those yummy veggies! I just add a bit of butter and olive oil to the pan and get it hot, and then pile in the cabbage and celery. Once the cabbage starts to wilt it’s time to add in more veggies.

Diced tomatoes with green chilies add just a little heat and once that cooks down I add in carrots.  Then I add in some broth, the ground beef and one of my new favorite spices…Cumin!

Cumin is what gives this soup a warmth and earthy flavor that is truly over the top!

This soup is so hearty and filling that all you need is a chunk of bread (for dipping) and you’ve got a meal!

Here’s the full recipe!

I hope you enjoy!

  1. Okay this is soup recipe #2 that I want to try. I never thought about using ground beef in soup. Chilli yes but not soup you just gave me an idea. I think my winter meals are going to consist of soup because it’s just so good and tasty. My new comfort food which is better than sweets.

    1. Thank you, Carole! I know exactly what you mean about the ground beef in soup! When my mom shared this recipe I didn’t think it sounded that great but I tried it anyway (with a few changes of my own) and like I said, it is one of my FAVORITE’s now! Soup is definitely one of go-to comfort foods in the fall and especially winter! I hope you enjoy! Have a great weekend!
