1 pound lean ground beef (or turkey)
2 cubes beef bouillon
4 cups water
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 onion, minced
1 slice bread, crumbled (I use Progresso Italian bread crumbs)
2 tbsp water
1 tsp chili powder (I use a tbsp)
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp cumin seed (I exclude this and double up on the powder)
3 carrots, sliced
1 green bell pepper, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
1 (14.5 ounce) can stewed tomatoes
1/2 medium head cabbage, cut into wedges
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
Salt & pepper to taste
1. Mix the ground beef, garlic, onion, bread crumbs, egg, and 2 tsp water. Shape into bite size meatballs.
2. Heat the water and dissolve the bouillon cubes. Bring to a boil and drop the meatballs in and cook for 5 minutes.
3. Add the chili powder, cumin powder, cumin seed, dried oregano, carrots, green pepper, celery, and tomatoes with juice. Cut cut the half head of cabbage into wedges and add them into the broth.
