Irish Bacon And Cabbage Soup

Recipe by  

"This is a wonderfully simple chunky soup. I use good quality Irish back bacon but if you can't get this, it tastes equally good made with pancetta. The dark green colour of the cabbage alongside the tomatoes gives the soup a beautiful colour."

My husband and I thought this recipe was very good. I just used ordinary bacon and added a touch of basil and a little sugar. Most things with tomatoes needs a touch of sugar to get rid of the flat taste. Will make again.

The broth was very salty to me. I used the pancetta and it was stringy. I'd advise if using pacetta to cut it up in small pieces. It isn't a dish I'd make again or feel comfortable serving to dinner guests. It reminded me of the cabbage soup diet.

I couldn't find Irish bacon and used Pancetta for the first time which made the flavor of this soup fantastic. It's a true comfort meal especially when serving the recipe for Irresistible Irish Soda Bread. Thank you for sharing which brought raves from my guests!

I THOUGHT THIS WAS ONE OF THE BEST SOUPS I'VE HAD I COULDN'T FIND IRISH BACON SO I USED KILBASA AND IT WORKED OUT JUST FINE. THANK YOU

We loved this soup. Used regular bacon and cabbage since that's what I had leftover. One change is that it takes a bit more chicken broth and/or water.

I was kinda worried about this because it really didn't taste that great the first time around, but when we heated it up the next day it was GREAT. I added chicken for extra protein and used regular cabbage. Also added some minced garlic. Potatoes were yukon golds, but I think red taters might taste better next time.
