Sweet & Sour Beef-Cabbage Soup

Soups On!!! This wholesome sweet-and-sour soup combines beef, sweet paprika and cabbage—ingredients that star in a number of German dishes. It is particularly nice served with crusty rye bread.  It's filling and tasty ---  we love it ♥.

·         1 tablespoon canola oil
·         1 pound lean (90% or leaner) ground beef
·         1 teaspoon dried thyme
·         2 1/2 cups frozen bell pepper and onion mix, thawed, chopped
·         1 medium Golden Delicious  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
·         Freshly ground pepper to taste
 Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add beef and thyme and cook, stirring and breaking up the beef with a spoon, until it is mostly browned. Stir in pepper-onion mix and apple; cook, stirring, for 2 to 3 minutes more.
 Stir in broth, tomatoes, honey and paprika and boil gently. Cook for 10 minutes to blend the flavors. Stir in cabbage and cook just until barely tender, 4 minutes more. Season with vinegar and pepper to taste.
Happy Cooking
