Don't waste your time! No one in my family would eat it! And that comes from a family of cabbage lovers!

I would leave out the Beans and add carrots. But it is very good!

Based on the other reviews, I decided people either love this soup or they hate it, I like cabbage and had some on hand and I decided to give a go. We all loved it! It is hearty, filling, and frugal - a great simple meal when served with buttered bread or rolls. I think the garlic powder or garlic salt is essential, though. I needed to add more at the table and it really made a difference.

Adding carrots to the soup makes it even better

swapped out beer for semi-sweet white wine. Added caarots & celery instead of beans.

Just made this Stew and have to say it is delicious! I added a little bit extra garlic salt and also added a little bit of Cumin.

This recipe was totally awesome! Whoever didn't like it probably used some cheap beer like pabst. I used good ol'English Newcastle, and it came out marvelous and was fast to prepare.
