Pork gives this hearty Pork Vegetable Soup a wonderfully rich flavor and it’s packed full of good for you vegetables.  It’s also a very filling and comforting soup.  The secret to achieving the most flavor in this soup is in making it the day before you plan to serve it.  The flavor gets better the longer it sits.


  • 6 large bone in pork chops
  • 5 large russet potatoes
  • 1 large head cabbage
  • 1 large bag, (32 ounces), frozen mixed vegetables, (without potatoes)
  • 3 cans, (14 ounces each) diced regular or petite tomatoes
  • 1 can (14 ounces) of tomato sauce or 1 can diced tomatoes, pureed in a blender
  • 1 can (14 ounces) whole kernel corn, drained or 1 1/2 cups frozen corn
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons pepper
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic from a jar
  • 1 medium onion, diced and sauteed in 2 tablespoons of butter


  1. Brown the pork chops, three at a time, in a large skillet and set them aside to cool.
  2. Peel and dice the potatoes into bite-size pieces and add to a large soup pot. Wash the cabbage and cut it into small pieces and add to the pot. Add the mixed vegetables, corn, tomatoes, tomato sauce, salt, pepper, minced garlic and onion. Dice the cooled pork chops into bite-size pieces and add to the soup pot along with the bones.
  3. Cover the mixture with at least two inches of water and the drippings from the skillet and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer covered with a lid that is slightly offset. Once the cabbage has cooked down, add some additional water to the soup. Add more salt & pepper to taste.  Continue to simmer the soup for at least one hour.
  4. Remove from heat and let sit for about an hour. Remove the bones and refrigerate the soup, until the next day for optimal flavor.


  • This soup has more flavor the longer it sits. I like to make it one day prior to serving it.
