Stuffed Cabbage Soup   Tongue Out

1 lb ground beef, browned 

2 slices turkey bacon, browned and crumbled 

1 small onion, diced 

1 garlic clove, minced 

1 cup tomato juice 

4 cups water or 4 cups beef broth 

2 teaspoons low-sodium beef bouillon cubes 

2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce 

2 teaspoons paprika 

1 teaspoon allspice 

1/2 teaspoon Tabasco sauce 

2 cups cooked rice 

2 -3 cups cabbage, sliced thin 

14 ounces reduced-sodium diced tomatoes, undrained 

Cook turkey bacon in frying pan until crisped, remove from pan to drain on paper towels. Crumble and set aside.

Add ground beef to pan and brown in turkey bacon drippings until almost cooked through.

Add diced onion and cook 4-5 minutes until onions are transparent.

Add garlic and cook an additional 1-2 minutes.

Drain meat mixture on paper towel lined plate.

Place all ingredients, including meat mixture and turkey bacon, in a large pot and cook over medium heat until it boils. Turn heat down and cook for at least one hour, stirring occasionally. Add a little water if it gets too thick for your liking. I cook mine 2-3 hours.
