One Pot Scrumptious Beef and Cabbage Soup

What and how to do:

Use large pot;
Sauté grass fed ground beef until browned
Add 4 TBS of a robust Extra Virgin Olive Oil ( I used Capizzano’s Picual from Spain)
Add ½ small heads of cabbage; sliced and diced red and green cabbage
Add 4 sliced carrots
Add large handful of fresh string beans, cut up in small sections
Add 1 box or jar of beef bone broth
Add 1 can of Tuttarosa crushed tomatoes
Add oregano, sweet basil, garlic, celery salt, turmeric and ground pepper to soup

Stir and cover to simmer until vegetables are crunchy tender. Shut off heat.

Just before serving add a small handful of fresh snipped cilantro into pot.
Serve with a drizzle of Capizzano’s Basil Infused Olive Oil.
A clean and nutrient packed soup with lots of flavor!

I use ground dried herbs that are nonirradiated, they have a lot of flavor and are healthier to use. You can use fresh herbs also if you have them.
