8 servings


  • 1 tablespoon oil

  • 1 large onion, chopped

  • 6 large potatoes, peeled and cubed

  • 1 small head cabbage, chopped

  • salt to taste

  • 6 cups water, or as needed

  • 1 (32 ounce) can diced tomatoes

  • 2 (12 ounce) cans corned beef

  • 1 (15 ounce) can cream-style corn

  • 1 (15 ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained

  • ground black pepper to taste


  1. Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat; stir in onion. Cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes.

  2. Add potatoes, cabbage, salt, and pepper. Add water to cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook until potatoes are tender, about 20 minutes.

  3. Add diced tomatoes, corned beef, cream-style and kernel corns, and pepper. Cook until heated through, about 15 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

You can use fresh tomatoes instead of canned.

If you do not like cabbage or are out, I have substituted 1 or 2 cans of carrots and it is still an excellent soup.
