From the cheap and easy department, we went to visit my dad last weekend, and he had some extra cabbage and onions that they gave us. I decided to make some soup with it. It came out pretty good for an easy soup. (Thanks are due to miklb for some advice on this one.)
Start with a medium head of cabbage.
Halve the cabbage. (we'll only use one half.)
Core the cabbage.
Roughly chop the cabbage.
3 medium yellow onions.
Cut and clean the onions.
Roughly chop the onions.
Use 1lb. of Polish Kielbasa.
Cut the sausage into small chunks.
Cook the sausage in a pan with a small amount of oil.
Brown the sausage.
Set the sausage aside and add the onions to the pain with the oil from the sausage.
Cook the onion until it just starts to brown.
Set the onion aside and add the cabbage to the pan.
About 1 Tbsp. whole caraway seeds.
Add the caraway to the cabbage.
Cook the cabbage and caraway for about 5 minutes.
Bring 12 Cups of beef broth to a boil.
Add the cabbage, onions and sausage to the broth and simmer for about 1 hour. About 10 minutes before serving, add 1 Cup of barley.
Serve with bread. Yum!
