This is my own 'creation' trying to copy the cabbage/bean/beef soup that was a signature dish at Shoney's, hope you enjoy!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This is a hearty soup is full of flavor! Along with the red beans, the mixture of ground meat and sausage gives this soup a unique flavor. If you're not a fan of spice I'd suggest leaving the Rotel out, it adds a kick. All the fresh veggies are what really make this soup yummy. Adding the cabbage at the end keeps it from getting too soggy. Great as a meal alone or paired with a sandwich.

Note: Our seasoning of choice was 1 1/2 tablespoons Italian seasoning, 1 teaspoon salt and 3/4 teaspoon pepper. Also, we did add water during the cooking process while the soup cooked down. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
