The measurements in Nani’s Cabbage Soup are broad and liberal. I learned by watching, not measuring. This recipe is what I call “Peasant Food“…nothing too precise… people used what they had. These are my very favorite recipes! Adjust it as you see fit.
SG TIDBIT: This is NOT Weight Watcher’s Cabbage Soup! It has lots of meat and a rich rich flavor.
This makes a big pot!
3 potatoes, peeled and diced
1 can crushed stewed tomatoes
2 TBS butter
SG TIP: Make sure to use enough meat. You are making a rich base for your soup~ watery tasting soup is a big culinary faux pas!
Remove pork chops and reserve. Add onions and a little more olive oil if needed. Cook onions until translucent.
Rough chop cabbage and put into the soup pot.
Add tomato soup and crushed stewed tomatoes. Simmer for 1 hour, uncovered. Add potatoes the last 15 minutes of cooking time. Salt and pepper.
Remove pork chops from soup and let cool. .
Make a roux ~ melt butter in a large skillet. Add flour and combine. Cook for 3-4 minutes until lightly blond. Add 1 cup of soup broth and make a roux. Whisk until the flour is incorporated and no lumps. Add an additional 1/2~1 cup of soup broth and mix. Cook until thickened. Add the thickened roux to the soup.
Simmer soup for 10 minutes until soup thickens a little.
Meanwhile, shred or chop pork and return the meat to the soup pot.
Serve hot with a dollop of sour cream!
