Ham & Cabbage Soup

One of the best things about the holidays is all the left overs.  And one of the favorite things about Christmas’ left over ham is Ham & Cabbage Soup.  I love it… hubby hates it.  So I don’t make it very often.  But when I do make it, I make a 6 quart pressure cooker full.

Here’s my recipe for Ham & Cabbage Soup

Ham & Cabbage Soup is easy to make & it’s a ‘stick to your ribs’ kind of meal.

What you’ll need:

6 quart pressure cooker (you could use a large Dutch Oven)

Left over ham (diced)

Sliced Green Onions  (you could used regular onions)

Diced potatoes

Diced Carrots

Diced Cabbage  (I used a small head)

Chicken Broth

Spices (Onion powder, Garlic powder, Parsley flakes)


Olive Oil or Vegetable Oil

In the pressure cooker over medium heat:

Saute the green onions in the oil until tender.  Remove pot from heat.

Seal the pressure cooker, according to your manufacture’s directions.  Bring soup to a boil, reduce heat & cook 20 minutes.

(If you’re using a Dutch Oven, cover with a lid, bring to a boil, reduce heat & simmer until the potatoes & carrots are tender.)

After the soup has cooked for 20 minutes, cool the pressure cooker with cold running water.
