This is the creamiest soup that made even my 5-year-old lick the bowl clean! Best served with Reuben sandwiches. Can be adapted to a slow cooker.

  • Pour chicken broth over onion mixture and stir until blended, 2 to 3 minutes. Add cabbage and corned beef; cook, stirring frequently, until cabbage is tender, about 20 minutes. Add half-and-half and cook just until liquid is warm but not boiling, about 5 minutes.

  • Stir half-and-half into the pot; continue to cook just until liquid is warm but not boiling, about 5 minutes.

  • Melt cream cheese over low heat in a saucepan until creamy, 2 to 3 minutes. Whisk cornstarch and water together in a bowl; stir into cream cheese until smooth. Stir cream cheese mixture into soup; cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until cheese melts and soup is thickened, about 5 minutes.

I think this is an excellent recipe! I only gave it four stars because I altered it some. I thought for sure that I had a block of cream cheese but alas! I did not. So I mixed in a 6 oz. package of grated parmesan cheese which I did have on hand. It is SO good!:) I'm sure it would be excellent with the cream cheese too.:) Also I used leftover corned beef that I had cooked in the crock pot last week for St. Patrick's Day. - Instead of the packaged deli stuff (it was a whole lot cheaper my way too!;-) ) Read More

Used my leftovers from previous nights Crock-Pot corned beef dinner and used this recipe as a guide. Made a huge pot of it and literally not a single spoonful was left. So good! ( If it's too thick just add extra broth). Added corn which brightened it up. Read More

REALLY good! I had some leftover German cabbage. This soup was the perfect way to use it up. I agree with some reviewers that a rye crouton is in order here though. It is a VERY rich soup though and a little goes a long way. Read More

I followed the recipe with the addition of baby carrots and baby red potatoes. I omitted the dill seed as I did not have any. I grated some swiss cheese to top it off. Read More

Perfect as is. I chose to substitute heavy cream for half and half and only used 8oz for a slightly thicker and creamier chowder. Even my picky eater enjoyed this. Read More

Made for the first time just as recipe stated. Sorry added extra onions and garlic. We took it to church gathering hoping to bring some home did not happen. It is truly amazing and as my children say "It's a keeper" Read More
