#cabbagesoup #justlikeoma #germanrecipeI love to add carrots to this soup. Adds just a bit of color and and extra flavor.
Yum

This German Cabbage Soup recipe is one that my Mutti often made in the winter. Living in northern Canada during my growing up years, this soup was a real tummy-warmer! It was her way, without me realizing it, that my love for German foods was established. I so enjoy any German cabbage recipe, that even now, I'm always trying new ones.

This one is such a quick recipe to make. However, it's one of those recipes that benefits with a long time on the stove, but it's time I can do other things.

Kaffeeklatsch Trivia with a cup of coffee and steam rising

  • Germans love their cabbage and are nicknamed, Krauts. However, people from Russia, Belgium, and Netherlands top the list of cabbage consumption
  • The usual ways cabbage is served is  raw, steamed,  pickled, stewed, roasted, sautéed or braised.
  • Cabbage provides vitamins A, C, K and B6, folate, potassium, manganese, thiamin, calcium, iron, magnesium and fiber.
  • Savoy cabbage has a milder taste and can easily be substituted for the green or white cabbages that are used for most German recipes.

Mutti's Easy German Cabbage Soup Recipe ❤️

Ingredients:

  • 2½ lbs potatoes
  • 2 Tbsp oil
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 3 lb cabbage, shredded or chopped
  • 2 medium onions, diced
  • salt, pepper, caraway seeds
  • 4 cups broth (or use bouillon cubes)
  • 1 Tbsp vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp Maggi Seasoning Sauce (if available)

Instructions:

  • If the potatoes are new and the skins thin, don't bother peeling. Cut potatoes into bite-sized chunks.
  • Heat oil in large soup pot. Add onions and cook until translucent.
  • Add ground beef. Cook for several more minutes until meat is browned.
  • Add some water and stir up any browned bits stuck to the bottom of the pot.
  • Add cabbage and potatoes. Add broth. Add water (or more broth if desired) until about one inch BELOW level of vegetables. If you add water to top of vegetables, you final soup will be more liquid.
  • Add 2 tsp salt, ¼ tsp pepper, and 2 Tbsp caraway seeds.
  • Bring to boil, cover, and simmer for about 45 - 90 minutes. Stir several times during this time.
  • Add vinegar and Maggi to taste
  • Season with additional salt, pepper, and caraway seeds.
  • Add more vinegar and Maggi if needed.

Hints

  • If you like your soup creamier, thicken in any of the following ways: stir in leftover mashed potatoes or stir in instant mashed potato flakes.
  • Add carrots and/or celery along with the cabbage.
  • Try my potato and cabbage soup next.

#cabbagesoup #justlikeoma #germanrecipeHere I've made the soup following the above recipe exactly. WUNDERBAR!

We LOVE our cabbage! It's such an economical vegetable that can be used in so many different ways. So many cabbage recipes: cabbage rolls, casseroles, soups, salads, and side dishes.

I guess there's a reason that Germans are sometimes called "Krauts"!
