Healthy Sweet and Sour Beef Cabbage Soup Recipe 2010-11-19 16:07:48

Ingredients

  1. 1 tablespoon canola oil
    1 pound lean (90% or leaner) ground beef
    1 1/2 teaspoons caraway seeds
    1 teaspoon dried thyme
    2 1/2 cups frozen 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

  1. Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add 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 pepper-onion mix and apple; cook, stirring, for 2 to 3 minutes more.
  2. Stir in 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 cabbage and cook just until barely tender, 3 to 4 minutes more. Season with vinegar to taste, salt and pepper.

Makes 6 servings, about 1 3/4 cups each.
