Delicious and easy recipe. I used ground Italian sausage rather than the ground beef because I had it on hand. The flavor was perfect. Easy recipe to make it your own too.

Loved this recipe. As others did, I added onion and chopped carrots, increased beef and seasonings. Definite keeper and will make again. Love soups in the cold weather.

This is my first review: this recipe makes a lot of soup! My husband and I loved it. I did add carrots and celery and will add sweet corn next time. There was so much left over, I put it into 5 one-pint canning jars while still hot, put on the lids and bands and let them cool. When they sealed, I put them in the refrigerator. Three weeks later, I still have two pints and they make a quick lunch just as tasty as day one.

I made this exactly as written, and my family just didn't like it that much. I like cabbage, and we grow it in our garden, so I was hoping this would be a winner. It was kind of bland.

Delish! As soon as I saw this in my inbox I showed it to my hubby. It being the first day of October this was spot on. I too use home canned tomatoes and it makes a big difference. I added diced onions and carrots too. Will be making this again.

I've been making this for years. Got the recipe from the collector's edition of Reninisce. I use 1 qt of my home canned tomatoes and 1 qt. of water. I usually add some diced onions too. This makes a big batch. My family loves this. Given out the recipe many times.

I also have made this for years but I add potatoes and carrots and no celery o garlic. It's most requested for church pot lucks? I adapted It from soup I had at Shoneys many years ago.

I don't like cooked cabbage, so I didn't think I was going to like this soup! My Mom loves cabbage soup, I was making it for her. Was I ever surprised. This soup is great and will make it oftern.

Great classic soup! Perfect soup to serve family on a snowy day but makes plenty for potlucks too. Add any extra veggies you like. As a volunteer feild editor with Taste of Home magazine I love recipes that include lots of fresh or frozen veggies! We love to pair this soup with a great sweet cornbread muffin recipe on ToH. https://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/sweet-corn-bread-muffins
