My sweet father-in-law, Pop Pop, would bring this chunky soup to our house when we were under the weather. We like it so well, we take it to our own friends who need comfort. Always does the trick. —Sue Webb, Reisterstown, Maryland

"I made this for dinner tonight and it was wonderful!! I did substitute Italian sausage for the ground beef and adjusted the seasonings slightly and we loved it! This recipe is a keeper for sure!!"

"Excellent flavor and easy. I would simmer much longer as we do not like crisp tender cabbage in our soup. This might also be very good made with bulk Italian sausage."

"This recipe was tasty and easy. I made a few changes for my family's tastes and what we had on hand. I only used 1 pound of beef, chicken broth instead of beef beef broth, and doubled the black pepper. This was a great way to use up half of a cabbage that I had in the fridge. While it tasted very good, I don't think I would go out of my way to make this recipe again, but I would certainly make it if I had the ingredients on hand."
