This German soup with cabbage, potatoes, tomato, and dill may be made with either chicken or beef. Finished with dill, and great with a dollop of sour cream.
Ground beef or beef stew meat may be used in place of the chicken. If using ground beef, brown in a skillet over medium heat, then drain excess grease. If using stew meat, simmer meat until tender, approximately 2 hours, depending on the cut. As well, chicken poaching liquid or beef stewing liquid may be used in place of the water.
