    I really enjoyed the soup, but I can't give it a high rating because I changed a few things. I increased beef to one pound. Then I added 5 cups of beef broth, 2 cups of V8 juice and one cup water for the 8 cups of water in the recipe. Also added a couple of dashes of Worcestershire sauce. - 2/8/18

    Made this soup today almost exactly as present4ed. Very light tasting, which I love about it. For those, like my SO, who like very flavorful dishes it'll be easy enough to add favorite spices to amp up the taste. Added to my collection. - 12/17/14

    I have tried this recipe and something is not correct. Instructions say buillion, but none on the ingredient list. I added 32 oz of low sodium beef broth. I increased the beef to 1 lb, and doubled the amount of cabbage. I aslo subbed in a can of rotel tomatoes & chilis for the fresh. - 10/6/13

    Very Good
    I haven't made this yet, but it's most definitely on my list! I wonder how it would turn out in a crock pot. - 5/19/08
