Sweet and Sour Beef-Cabbage Soup

  • Active Time 30m
  • Total Time 30m

6 servings, about 1 3/4 cups each

This wholesome sweet-and-sour soup combines beef, caraway seeds, sweet paprika and cabbage — ingredients that star in a number of German dishes. It is particularly nice served with crusty rye bread. For an even heartier soup, add diced cooked potatoes along with the cabbage.

ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 pound lean (90 percent or leaner) ground beef
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons caraway seeds
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 2 1/2 cups frounceen bell pepper and onion mix, thawed, chopped
  • 1 medium Golden Delicious or other sweet-tart cooking apple, unpeeled, diced
  • 6 cups reduced-sodium beef broth
  • 1 15-ounce can crushed or diced tomatoes
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon paprika, preferably Hungarian sweet
  • 3 cups coarsely chopped savoy or green cabbage
  • 1-2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste

directions

Heat the oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the beef, caraway seeds and thyme and cook, stirring and breaking up the beef with a spoon, until it is mostly browned, about 4 minutes. Stir in the pepper-onion mix and apple; cook, stirring, for 2 to 3 minutes more.

Stir in the broth, tomatoes, honey and paprika and adjust the heat so the mixture boils gently. Cook for 8 to 10 minutes to blend the flavors. Stir in the cabbage and cook just until barely tender, 3 to 4 minutes more. Season with vinegar to taste, salt and pepper.
