This is a very versatile soup that you can tailor to your liking.  I often use differing low-glycemic vegetables and replace the cabbage with spinach for more variety. We only use grass-fed beef in our recipes in order to reap the greatest health benefits. Mountain Run Farm in Sedalia, VA, is a great source for grass-fed beef products and much more. The amount of vegetables doesn't have to be exact.  Sometimes I just clean out my frig or add more or less veges, depending on how much broth I want.


1 lb. ground grass-fed beef

1 onion

1-2 tsp minced garlic

1 can organic tomato sauce

1 can organic Italian diced tomatoes (if using regular diced tomatoes, add 2 tsp. Italian seasoning)

6-7 cups beef broth or beef bone broth

½ head cabbage cut into bite-sized pieces

2 small to medium zucchini, quartered and cut into ½ inch pieces

5 cups fresh or frozen low-glycemic vegetables (choose from green beans, cauliflower, broccoli, peppers)

Sea salt and fresh-ground pepper to taste


In a large pot brown ground beef on one side. Turn to brown other side and add onion and garlic, cooking 5 minutes. Add other ingredients. I add 6 cups of broth to start and add more as needed. Bring to a boil and simmer for about a half hour.
