We’ve all noticed that food is getting expensive and our families certainly aren’t exactly consuming groceries any slower! If you are struggling to find a way to give your family a great-tasting, nutritious, yet inexpensive meal this winter, try this cheesy cabbage soup. All of the ingredients will be under $15.00 and it will make over 12 cups.
My mom has been making this recipe for years and it is so good that I have to stop my self from eating unending bowls of it! It is easy and cheap to make and is great reheated, which is good because this recipe makes about 12 cups or more!
12 cups of water
2 pounds of ground beef (or 1/2 to 1 lb more, if you’d like)
1 head of cabbage
1 large sweet onion (diced)
4 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 bag of frozen corn or 1 can of corn (drained)
1 can of diced tomatoes (drained)
24oz of Velveeta cheese (equivalent of 3/4 a large package)
1) In a large stock pot bring 12 cups of water to boil.
2) In the meantime, brown and drain ground beef (pat with paper towel to remove excess oil).
3) Chop head of cabbage into 1″ x 1″ cubes and dice onion into small pieces.
4) Add hamburger meat, cabbage cubes, diced onion, Worcesterchire sauce, corn, and drained tomatoes.
5) Cook for one hour on low-medium heat.
6) Cut Velveeta cheese into 1″ x 1″ cubes and add it to the soup. Continue to stir once the cheese is added, to ensure it does not stick to the bottom and burn.
7) Once the cheese is completely melted, cook on low heat for another 10 minutes.
You can serve this soup immediately or in a week – you’ll actually find that this is one of those recipes that the longer it sits in your fridge, the better it tastes…a rare find indeed.
Try the soup with regular old white bread to dip – you’d be surprised just how good it is.
