Transylvanian sweet cabbage soup with ribs

Peel a squash, grate it and slice it.

Cut the cabbage into small pieces, squares with a side of 1-1.5 cm.

We cut the ribs into pieces and boil them in a liter of water, we leave it like that for about 30 minutes.

In a pot in which I put two teaspoons of oil, sauté the carrot and onion, then add the necessary water, donut paste, cabbage, salt, green dill and ribs boiled with water from it.

Let the cabbage and carrot boil well until they are all cooked.

I add the cabbage soup with the juice from the pickled hot peppers.

Whoever wants can add a tablespoon of sour cream to the soup and sprinkle green dill on top.

Great appetite!

Prepare the ingredients.
The vegetables are cleaned and washed.
Finely chop the onion, carrots, parsnips and celery.
Cut the cabbage finely or finely, each as he can or as he prefers.
Cook the onion with a tablespoon of oil, add the carrot, parsnip and celery.

Add the paprika and mix quickly, so as not to burn and pour the 2 liters of soup or water. You can put 3 liters, but I like it thicker and I don't use rantas to thicken it.
Add tomato paste or tomato sauce.

It tastes good with salt and pepper.
Serve hot as such or with sour cream and dill. You can also add hot peppers.
Good appetite!


For me, the glossy (from the Hungarian lucskos kaposzta) it is a special smoked cabbage soup, a soup that must be sweet and silky, with an intense aroma of thyme. Every time I smell a dry bunch of thyme I automatically think of gloss.

This is the perfect recipe for me. I tried over time to change it (to put less smoke, more cabbage, more water, less or not at all rantas) to make it lighter but the truth is that none was compared with the real shiny, they were just ordinary cabbage soups.

Tip: use ribs true smoked naturally with smoke.

How to cook cabbage with pork Transylvanian recipe?

First I prepared the meat. I had some pork leg that I cut into larger pieces. You can buy working meat directly.

I remembered that I also had some nice slices of pork breast in the freezer & # 8230 I took them out quickly to thaw. I also chopped the onions.

I took out the heavy cast iron pot with a lid and put the lard on the stove, without smoking. In it I fried the meat (the meat and the breast cut into strips), over high heat. The pieces of meat should brown, not leave water and make puddles. I always turned them with the spatula so that they brown on all sides.

I seasoned everything with salt, pepper and half a teaspoon of cumin (the rest comes later). I added chopped onions to the pot. I hardened everything for about 2 minutes.

I turned everything off by approx. 100 ml of white wine (or water). I waited for the alcohol to evaporate, then I put 100 ml of hot water and covered the pot with the lid provided. The meat must be simmered under the lid, over medium to low heat. This takes about 40 minutes and you need to add water for about 10 minutes (also 100 ml), as it evaporates. Exactly like the pörkölt & # 8211 You can find the recipe for pörkölt here.

How to prepare sweet cabbage for quality?

In the meantime, I took care of the cabbage. I cut it first into quarters and then into not very thin strips.

I put the chopped cabbage in a large bowl and lightly salted it. Then I rubbed it lightly with my hands to soften it a bit.

The pieces of meat are already almost done (I tested them with a fork). They also have enough sauce around.

I put sliced ​​cabbage on them. I also added a chopped red pepper (kapia) for taste and color.

I mixed everything well and put the rest of the cumin and a knife tip of dried thyme.

I put the lid back on the pot and hardened the cabbage without adding any more liquid! She will leave enough water. This stage lasts approx. 20 minutes. I stirred occasionally so that it wouldn't catch and burn.

I can't tell you how good it smells in the kitchen !! I put out the fire under the pot and that's it. We like it more with sauce, but you can also lower it completely by boiling it for another 5 minutes without a lid, on a faster heat.

Glossy or Transylvanian cabbage soup

This soup reminded me of the taste of home, of childhood. it was basically my favorite. I prepared it with great pleasure, based on my mother's recipe, but in my style! It's a very tasty, filling soup. In the original version, no vegetables other than cabbage and broth or tomato paste are used. I chose to modify it, taking advantage of all the autumn vegetables, for an extra taste and flavor!

First we grate the cabbage, we massage it vigorously with a little salt. Grate the carrots, finely chop the peppers, donut, dill, tomatoes.
Boil the pork chop together with the peeled onion, the thyme mixture, a little salt and pepper, enough water to cover it. We boil it for an hour.
Separately, heat the pepper and the donut in a little oil for 5 minutes, add the carrots, heat them for 10 minutes, then the cabbage, leave for another 10 minutes. Put the resulting composition aside.
Add it to the soup pot, together with a little warm water to cover it, boil it for another 30 minutes, then put the tomatoes, continuing to cook for another 10 minutes.
Separately, heat a little oil in a pan, heat the flour for 2 minutes, add the spices, leave them for a minute, a pinch of juice, dill, mix everything and put the resulting sauce (or rantas) back in the pot. We add 2, 3 more boils, after which we season, add, if necessary, a little lemon juice or vinegar, a little sugar.
Transylvanian cabbage soup is served (at least in my representation), with lots of sour cream, toast greased with lard, paprika and cumin, plus the tender meat from the pork chop.
It's really crazy, with the taste of childhood!
Just try it!
Good appetite!

Saute onions in oil and water in equal proportions. Add the carrot, celery and bell pepper, all chopped into small cubes and the smoked ribs cut into suitable pieces.
Bake together for 1 minute, stirring constantly, then pour hot water to cover everything.
The soup is left to simmer until the vegetables and meat are half cooked.
Now add the finely chopped cabbage, tomato juice, salt and pepper to taste. Boil for another 15-20 minutes, then add the borscht or cabbage juice (cooked first separately).
After two or three more boils, the fire stops. Sprinkle on top, finely chopped green parsley and a little dried thyme.

Serve with sour cream and hot peppers.

Transylvanian potato soup with sour cream and smoked meat

Transylvanian potato soup with sour cream and smoked meat I do it especially in winter or spring, when it's cold outside. E o soup Fantastically tasty, dense, with tarragon or larch and plenty of sour cream. If you are afraid of calories or you are obsessed with healthy food, please do not read the recipe, just smell the picture. It's brilliantly good! & # 128578

We made a few portions now because we had a craving and if we were still smoking, we also sacrificed some bacon own production and some pieces of smoked mouse. The girl is capricious, she doesn't eat fat, she doesn't eat mice, there were some chopped pieces left on a plate, so I threw them in the pot.

Don't think he ate my pride, he squinted. But my husband and I were not upset, we ate everything with great pleasure & # 128578

Sweet cabbage soup

I refrained from putting sour cream in this soup, I wanted it to be a fasting recipe: D With sour cream, cabbage soup is incomparably tastier.

Thank you all for this wonderful recipe

And I cook this kind of soup just by simply calling it & quot; cabbage & quot. In my family (that is, in Iasi), when we say that we cook & quotvarza & quot, everyone understands what we mean. But I see that most people I know in Bucharest do not cook and have not heard of this way of cooking cabbage. Just last night I made smoked cabbage. You lick your fingers: D

We have seen that many foods differ from one region to another or, if they are the same, then their name is different. In my family, by "cabbage" we mean a quality cabbage :)

And to me the same. & # 39Cabbage & # 39 = Cabbage soup. :).

And in Galati we still say "quotvarza", although to the recipe presented we add a little borscht, and a hot pepper next to it and it's insane. In my family, it is often cooked in the summer, because it is an easy food to make and for the ball.

:) And what was it like after you finished?

right now I'm starting to cook the cabbage soup!

Good cooking and good appetite, Otilia!

Miamyyyy. I do these days too. But can I not cook vegetables? Can I boil them directly?

Cristina, I see that Deliutza has already answered you - you don't have to cook the vegetables for the cabbage soup.

It was raining in my mouth, I'll do it tomorrow too. It's not necessary to cook the vegetables, you can put them directly to boil. Good appetite for everyone.

Thank you for your help, Deliutza!

And when you think that people eat it just to lose weight.

how good it looks. I'll do it tomorrow.

And today I started a diet with hot water and lemon to which I will add this recipe that looks so good. I hope to manage to lose weight, the will exists but we will see along the way.

Good luck, at as many pounds lost! Definitely cabbage soup looks better than lemon water :)

Hi & quotMan the pot & quot!
Right now I cut the sweet cabbage fidelita and I thought to look a little on the net, how to prepare other pers. cabbage soup.
In small and large, I have the same everywhere. I put dill in the sauerkraut, and in the soup I put thyme.
I also put it into practice for dietary reasons, but I personally let Kg flow slowly and heat all the vegetables a little in 2-3 ls of rapeseed oil and boil a few smoked ribs with a little fat, which I add to the soup, in this way mi- it seems the diet is easier to bear. As a matter of fact, I'm a liar, maaaaaaaare. hard to refrain when it's vb. cooking, especially for cakes. I think no one surpasses me :-)))
All the best and thousands of thanks for recipes and photos!
Laura S.

Perfect. after I add sour cream and bacon! Thanks for the tip.

With pleasure! It would be a shame to eat cabbage soup only when we want to lose weight.

Good evening, we were looking for recipes with cabbage soup for weight loss, and we got here. My mother, whatever it looks like, I think I'm gaining about 2 kg instead of losing weight.

Good evening (although, I don't know how good it is, if our meeting makes you put on 2 kg :))). On the other hand, sweet cabbage soup is not the only method to lose weight, there are certainly other less tasty methods that can & quottopi & quot including the excess of 2 kg: D

Thank you very much for the answer. I don't think you would need to lose weight (I weigh 58 kg at 170 cm), but you know how we girls are. we always want perfection. and I'm really looking for the famous cabbage soup, but you left me ready with your soup. to sign, I'm Maia.

Bravo Maia, with Robert's recipes you can't remain indifferent. Whoever enters his blog, must know that they eat well here, not a joke & quotHI HI HI & quot. Robert, you make me cook every day (not that I'm in shape in the kitchen, but you make me see everything as easy).

Haha, I also wanted perfection when I wrote my cabbage soup recipe, but it seems I didn't succeed: D The recipe would have been really perfect if it contained 0 calories - or it would have repulsed and not- it would have made us lose our appetite :)) Anyway, Maia, I like your conclusion! )

Gianna, it's not at all unpleasant to be bothered with laudatory messages :) And it's nice to see that I managed to reach my goal: to be able to write recipes in such an inactive world to realize how simple cooking is actually . My opinion is that we complicate our lives in the kitchen, and at some point we end up not seeing the forest because of the trees :)

So. after all, can you lose weight with this recipe as well as with the original cabbage soup recipe, which promises 7kg lost in 7 days ?? I don't like that at all, I can't even eat it, and that's why I say ... maybe with this I will succeed in some performance, who knows :))

I'm not a nutritionist, but you know what they say, at the sought-after tree you shouldn't go with a bag) miracles: D You will certainly not lose weight in & quotin this way & quot by eating something as tasty as my cabbage soup, but at least you will eat it with pleasure. In the end, we enter a vicious circle: we are unhappy if we do not lose weight, but then we are weak but unhappy because we eat something that makes us sick.

Cabbage soup works especially if we put smoked ribs and vegetables in it comes out great

After all, we don't all eat cabbage soup to lose weight :) Of course, that smoked ribs works wonders with this recipe!

I made it, and it turned out very good, just the cabbage before you put it to boil must be washed and put with a little salt for 15 minutes, so it softens and boils before (that's what I learned from my mother).

Hello everyone. I made the soup today, and I added a little smoked scallops and some fried pork from the bucket. It went crazy, and I don't even want to hear that it's a weight loss recipe. (With what I added, it's definitely not). good result, and especially thousands of thanks to the one who gave us the basic blackberry in the mouth. Thanks Robert. To be honest, since I discovered you, I'm out of ideas. TE ADOOOOR. Sincerely, Gianna.

In the author's recipe I also recommend a little (ramirica) thyme. Try the sour with lemon salt, squeezed lemon.
Merge pt.slabit.

Thanks to everyone for the tips, I hope they will be useful to those who read the comments of the recipe. I'm salivating now at the fried pork from Gianna's garnish :)

The soup involves borscht and larch. That's how I learned from my mother. I made it as such and it turned out wonderful. With or without meat, with or without cream, it turns out delicious anyway!

Calorie-free version,
Still broken by me personally.

GOOD ingredients:
- capsicum + onion + chopped cabbage thrown in boiled water with salt, I boiled them like. 30 min., Until the thick ribs of the cabbage began to soften.
Then I put:
- paprika, along with
- broccoli + cauliflower + carrots (frozen sachet).
After 10 minutes, I added pepper, it was perfect.

Only that:
He made me put other ingredients, mentioned by others (NOT-GOOD Ingredients):
- tomato paste (already it didn't seem to taste the same),
- parsley (worse), it wasn't sour anymore, so I understood to straighten it with
- bors.

Sour, with a taste of a little borscht instead of a taste of cabbage or vegetables, the only advantage was that it remained full, thanks to the vegetables.

I also wrote this recipe for me, not to follow others, so the original recipe is the best.

Thank you, Mr. La Cratita!

Hehe, I thought the same thing when I started the culinary blog, in 2010: to write recipes for myself in the first place, not to end up as a mother who cooks using her ragged notebook: D

So this is my next soup I make, :-) if you have other recipes for diet (weight loss) I would appreciate it a lot. Thank you very much -)
