An interesting combination I threw together one cold day after work. I enjoyed it so much I've made it a regular.

I'm sorry but I didn't find this tasty at all it's VERY bland. There's just not enough seasoning in the soup. It also had a strong bitter flavor from the beer. I thought it might be better reheated the next day but unfortunately it wasn't. I'm not one to waste food but I ended up tossing this. Read More

Based on the other reviews I decided people either love this soup or they hate it I like cabbage and had some on hand and I decided to give a go. We all loved it! It is hearty filling and frugal - a great simple meal when served with buttered bread or rolls. I think the garlic powder or garlic salt is essential though. I needed to add more at the table and it really made a difference. Read More

This recipe was totally awesome! Whoever didn't like it probably used some cheap beer like pabst. I used good ol'English Newcastle and it came out marvelous and was fast to prepare. Read More
