Savoy cabbage in soup with beef anecdote

I make this savoy cabbage in soup with beef very often because this is one of my family favorite dinners. Once, my husband relative came unexpectedly to our house just when we were about to eat our savoy cabbage stew with beef. I offered him a plate. When he realized that we have savoy cabbage he politely refused. But my husband asked if he would like to try. He liked it and asked for more!

Afterward he said that it wasn’t savoy cabbage! It was beef soup with savoy cabbage! 😀

Tips for making savoy cabbage soup with beef

Sauté onion on lard or olive oil. I like to use lard because it’s very available here and traditionally we use it a lot. Sautéed onion will give special smell and caramel taste.

Brown beef after your onion is translucent. Meat has to be browned on the edges. Everything in purpose of great flavor!
