  • Very Good, Quick & Easy as is - Incredible with a couple of mods

    Made this several times, some as is, some with mods - always great! The best version used leftover spiral-cut ham instead of packaged cooked hamsteak, added a bit more of it, as well as extra potato. This soup does seem to be sensitive to the amount of potato. You can get by with less than 2 cups but seems to affect taste, adding more makes it better. Plan on making this a couple of times after baking a ham.

    I used more potatoes and more ham and did use the caraway seeds.. they were just what the recipe needed to put it over the top.

    This was just awesome I added the leftover spiral ham in stead of the ham steak. Replaced the vegetable oil for unsalted butter, but also added celery to the onions when sautéing.

  • Hearty and comforting.

    I used a little more cabbage and potato and only one onion. It was really good. Even my kids who don't like cabbage liked it.

  • Fast and Easy to throw together
