3 lbs ground sirloin - brown
1 large sweet onion - diced
1 red cabbage – sliced and diced
1 large can crushed tomatoes
1 large can stewed tomatoes
1 box of beef stock
1 cup long grain rice (not minute rice)
1 lemon – juice
½ cup brown sugar
dash of vinegar to taste
seasonings– Nature Seasoning and Montreal spicy
Brown meat add onion, tomatoes, broth, lemon, and sugar - simmer 10 minutes.
Add rice and simmer covered for 20 minutes.
Add cabbage and simmer 10 more minutes until cabbage is tender.
This makes a huge batch. You may want to cut it in half. Then just use the small cans of tomatoes and a small can of stock.
*** I used 1 1/2 lbs of meat, a small sweet onion, 3/4 of a small red cabbage, small cans of tomatoes, 3/4 cup of rice, I used the whole box of beef stock, the whole lemon, 1/3 cup of brown sugar, 1/4 cup distilled white vinegar. For seasonings I used Nature Seasoning, Lawry's, Salt and Pepper. After I added cabbage, I left pot on low for about an hour. I kept adding a little more seasonings, lemon juice, and vinegar to get the tanginess I like. You may like it sweeter and the original recipe may be fine for you, but I like it more vinegary.
|It's a thicker soup, like chili. You can add more liquid if you want.|
