Cabbage and Meatball Soup

This recipe is out of Atkins for Life Low Carb cookbook.  The cabbage resembled noodles in the soup.  It was very good.

Cabbage and Meatball Soup

1 lb ground beef
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp salt,divided
1/2 tsp pepper,divided
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
1/4 tsp ground allspice
3 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
2 Tbsp granular sugar substitute(I use Xylitol)
1 1lb green cabbage, thinly sliced
1 28oz can diced tomatoes
4 cup water
1/2 sour cream

Gently combine beef, onion powder, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp pepper and mustard in bowl.  With wet hands, form into balls(I used a cookie dough scoop and then formed into balls) and set into a large saucepan sprayed with oil.   Set saucepan over medium-high heat and cook meatballs, turning until all sides are brown, about 7 minutes.  Remove meatballs and place on plate and cover with foil.  Add red pepper flakes and allspice to pan drippings.  Cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds.  Add vinegar and sugar substitute and bring to a simmer.  Stir in cabbage, remaining of 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper.  Add tomatoes, and water, bring to a boil.  Reduce heat to low and simmer until cabbage is very tender, about 35-40 minutes.  Add meatballs and cook to warm through.  Serve, top with sour cream if desired.
