I sooo needed a pick me up soup for feeling icky! And this totally helped. My dad used to make this for him and I when we were on the "Dolly Pardon Diet" in the late 80's. And way, this is just as I remember it. Other then the can of green beans. But that doesn't matter. The only thing other then following it as close to a T as possible was not having whole peeled tomatoes or quarts of tomatoe juice. I had to sub, and glad I did, with 2 cans of Stewed tomatoes & V-8 juice. And after talking to may dad..he said he never used plain tomatoe juice in this recipe, always V-8. But it tastes just great. I think with the sub changes I had to make, I'll keep them the same on the next go around. Be sure....just a huge stock pot. Because I forgot how much this actually makes. It's really a delish recipe and it's a winner in my books. While myself and my girls love this style of soup, my guys aren't so much into cooked cabbage. But you will be surprise on how delicious it is even after about 3 days in the frig. It also freezes very well in smaller portions.
