I got this recipe from a restaurant in Michigan. For tastier soup use chicken broth instead of water, but I don't; it costs more. I use Campbell's® soup because it has a better flavor.

This was a fast and easy soup. I think if you served over rice it would taste like cabbage rolls. I halved the garlic and black pepper, omitted the salt, used a bag of coleslaw mix and 2 ten ounce cans of tomato soup with 3 cups of water. I added onion powder, garlic powder, Mrs Dash garlic & herb and a bay leaf. I did not boil the cabbage seperately, after the beef and onions were browned I added the rest of the ingredients, brought to a boil, then lowered to a simmer for an hour. My family enjoyed it! #AllrecipesAllstarsCanada #FacelessNoMore Read More

It was ok. Its not a German dish as if it were it would have vinger, red cabbage and meat not ground beef. But regardless I thought I'd try it. Its just OK. I wound up adding hot sauce as it doesn't have the best flavour. I was disappointed because now I have a half of a pot of soup left and no one wants to eat it. So I will not be making it again.

I simmered the cabbage in V8 & 2 bay leaves. I also added some chopped carrots & celery to that. Also a little worcestershire to taste. It's a good soup base & then tinker to your liking. Have leftovers add a little pasta. With any kind of tomato base soup I always add a can of tomato soup. It does make a difference. Learned this on this site. Read More
