Winter has finally come to the Texas Hill Country and soup is a must have. This recipe evolved from a friends kielbasa, cabbage and potato one pot meal...which Sasha's Polish mother used to make. When I decided to make it I had the cabbage and potatoes but no kielbasa...but I did have some ground beef. A little oil to keep burning down. A little salt and pepper. Voila! It was good. Then, to reheat the leftovers I added some chicken broth and some vinegar. Thus was my very favorite soup born.
