Steps

Beef Cabbage Soup

  1. Cook the meat.Place the water and the short ribs in a large stockpot. Put the pot on the stove over medium-high heat and bring it to a full boil. Reduce the heat to low, bringing the water to a simmer, and continue cooking for an hour, skimming the foam off the top every so often.
    • Be sure to use a very large pot, or the foam may overflow.
    • Keep the pot uncovered as the meat cooks.
  2. Prepare the vegetables.While the beef cooks, prepare your vegetables by rinsing them clean and cutting them into the appropriate-size pieces.
    • Rough-chop the onion into 1/2-inch (1.25-cm) pieces.
    • Slice the cabbage into 1-inch (2.5-cm) portions. Discard the thick stem.
  3. Remove the meat from the bone.Take it from the pot with a slotted spoon and place it on a cutting board. Use a fork and a knife to take the meat off of the bone and cut it into bite-sized pieces.
    • When finished, return the bite-sized pieces of beef to the broth in the stockpot. Mix to re-combine.
  4. Add the remaining ingredients.Add the cabbage, onion, ketchup, tomato, sugar, lemon juice, paprika, and salt to the stockpot. Mix well to combine, making sure the cabbage is fully submerged in soup.
  5. Simmer to blend the flavors.Simmer the soup for another hour on low heat. Taste the soup and add more salt and pepper as desired.
    • Once everything is tender and the broth tastes as desired, the soup is ready to serve. Ladle it into individual serving dishes.

Vegetable Cabbage Soup

  1. Saute the potatoes.Place the olive oil in a large stockpot and heat it up for a minute or two over medium-high heat. Add the chopped potatoes and the salt, and stir them to coat with olive oil. Cook the potatoes until they are soft, which should take about 10 minutes.
    • Don't overcook the potatoes, since they'll keep cooking with the rest of the soup ingredients.
    • You can wait and add the salt later if you'd like, but adding it now will allow it to blend more evenly with the natural taste of the potato. Adding it later, however, will make it easier to adjust the final taste of the soup (simply add it when adjusting the seasonings toward the end of the recipe).
  2. Add the garlic and onions.Place them in the pot with the potatoes and stir. Keep cooking the mixture until the onions turn translucent, which should only take three to five minutes.
    • Stir frequently to prevent the garlic and onions from burning. If either one burns, it could ruin the taste of the potatoes, even if you remove the burnt garlic or onion from the pan.
  3. Add the broth and beans.Pour the broth into the pot, then add the beans. Stir the mixture with a long-handled spoon. Bring the broth to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce it to low so that the broth is at a simmer.
  4. Add the cabbage and spices.Stir well after adding them to the soup. Cook the soup for 30 minutes, or until the cabbage is tender. Taste and add more salt and pepper as desires.
    • The soup is ready once everything is tender and the taste is to your liking. Serve the soup with a dollop of sour cream or some grated cheese.

Diet Cabbage Soup

  1. Sauté the vegetables.Place the olive oil in a large stockpot and heat it up over medium-high for a minute or two. Place the celery, onions, carrots and bell pepper in the oil and sauté until they are tender, stirring every few minutes.
    • This should only take approximately five minutes, but exact timing may vary on a case-by-case basis.
  2. Add the garlic.Put the garlic in the pot with the vegetables and continue cooking the mixture until the garlic becomes fragrant, about 2 minutes.
    • Garlic can burn very quickly, so it's important to stir it constantly and keep a close eye on it as it browns.
  3. Add the stock and tomatoes.Place the stock and tomatoes in the pot and bring the soup to a boil, then reduce to a simmer (low to medium-low heat). Stir constantly so no vegetables stick to the bottom of the pot.
  4. Mix in the cabbage and spices.After adding the cabbage, keep cooking the soup until the cabbage is tender, about 15 to 20 minutes. Taste the soup and add more seasonings if desired.
  5. Enjoy.The soup should be finished and ready to enjoy once everything is tender and seasoned to taste.

    The cabbage will absorb stomach acid which will make your stomach slimmer. Cabbage is also water based and a diuretic, so it will flush out your system.

    Yes, if you are not consuming it with in 2-3 days it should be stored in the freezer or disposed of. Freezing generally will alter the taste of most food, but it won't change the nutritional content.

    Can I cook the diet cabbage soup in the microwave?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    It's not advisable to cook most food in the microwave. Microwaving is a very harsh form of cooking which can destroy some of the delicate nutrients in food, and the food will not taste as good as it would cooked normally.
    Thanks!
