Anyone remember The Cabbage Soup Diet? It’s one of those weird diets that promise quick weight loss through cabbage-based simplicity: eating bowls of cabbage soup for breakfast, lunch, and dinner for a full week.

While I do not recommend The Cabbage Soup Diet, I will say that trying it once when I was younger made me realize that cabbage soup is actually pretty tasty! This cabbage soup – made heartier with beef – is wonderfully flavorful and very easy to make in less than 60 minutes.
