5 stars from 1 rating of Irish Bacon and Cabbage Soup

When my family does our grocery shopping, we typically write a list (like most people). Our list usually consists of the meals we plan to eat for the week ahead; and this list is usually themed (i.e. Mexican Week, Italian Week, etc.). For this week's theme, we decided to go the Irish route and prepare and dine on classical Irish cuisines.

I'm a mom of two kids. My life stays busy, and so I always try to find easy-to-make meals that are delicious and quick to fix. I came across this recipe and just had to share it. It's quick, easy, and oober yummy and is great for cold nights and sick days. Tweak it as you please and enjoy!

Cook Time

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 30 min
Ready in: 45 min
Yields: Serves about 6 People


  • 1/2 - 1 pound Bacon
  • 4 medium Potatoes, peeled, chopped
  • 1 (15 oz.) can Diced Tomatoes, don't drain
  • About 1 cup Chicken Stock
  • 2-3 cups Green Cabbage, thinly sliced


  1. Grab a large soup pot and cook over medium heat. Dice bacon into 1 inch pieces and cook until evenly brown. Drain the excess fat.
  2. Stir in diced potatoes and tomatoes. Cover mix with enough chicken stock. Season as you go along with salt and pepper (or whatever spice you prefer) . Bring mixture to a boil, reduce heat, and let simmer until potatoes are tender (about 15 minutes).
  3. Stir in cabbage bits, cover, and let simmer for about 5 minutes, or until cabbage is slightly tender.
  4. Serve and sprinkle cheese to be melted on top.

      Interesting combination, one that brings the best out of both bacon and cabbage, especially the latter!

      Thanks for this soup from the Emerald Isle.

      Thanks! That's why we have themes so that we refrain from getting stuck making the same old dishes each week. We love it :D; and you're right, it is educational! I hope you enjoy it!

      I think I have everything on hand to make this, maybe tonight or soon. I like your idea of themes for each week's menu-- a good way to get new ideas, and educational too.
