I grew up in Kansas City, where my parent's would go to Shoney's once a week. They had an all-you-can-eat soup and salad bar and it was the highlight of my week. Even as a kid, I've always loved soup. Then we moved out of state. Even though it has been nearly 40 years since I last had it, I never forgot about their beef and cabbage soup. I decided to recreate it based off my memory and here is what I came up with. Enjoy!

  • Increase heat to high. Add kidney beans, tomatoes, cabbage, beef broth, water, beef bouillon, garlic, and Worcestershire sauce; stir to combine. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 30 minutes. Ladle into bowls and salt to taste.

Cook's Note:

While it won't taste like Shoney's, ground venison works really well with this recipe too.

I made too many changes to be able to review honestly, though what I got was good. I never use bouillon cubes, (or canned soup) but organic broth, so no water. Seems like all these recipes with tomatoes, ground meat and beans come out resembling chili. Read More
