Soup Saturday

I have been getting tons of cabbage from my CSA that I needed to use and I remembered that I had some cooked Corned Beef in the freezer, left over from this dinner.  I thought about making a corned beef and cabbage casserole but then I decided to make a corned beef and cabbage soup for Soup Saturday.

I gathered together the ingredients I needed.

Cut, diced, chopped and threw them all in a pot.
Turned it on and walked away.

Came home after Mass and the house smelled lovely.
Dinner was served and it was yummy.

I did a google search and found several different recipes.  I read through each one (all were very similar) and then took a little of this and that from each one and created the soup I am sharing with you today.  It turned out pretty well, if I do say so myself.

Corned Beef and Cabbage Soup

1 lb cooked corned beef, cut into bite size pieces
1 onion, chopped
3 small or 1 large stalk celery, sliced
1 1/2 large carrots or 3 small carrots, peeled and diced
1/2 large head or 1 small head cabbage, cut into bite size chunks
1 qt. tomatoes with their juices
1 bottle dark beer
4 c. chicken broth
generous amount of pepper to taste
3/4 c. white rice
2 T. Worcestershire Sauce

Combine all ingredients in a slow cooker and cook on low for 6-8 hrs. Taste and season with additional pepper and salt if needed.  Print Recipe
