Preparation method

Prep: 10 mins     | Cook: 30 mins

  1. Pour olive oil into a soup pot over medium-high heat. Cook onion, celery, carrots, and bay leaf in the hot oil for about 3 minutes, then add cabbage and toss to coat. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and cook to wilt, about 2 minutes.
  2. Pour beer into the soup pot and cook for 1 minute. Then add chicken broth, tomatoes, Worcestershire sauce, corned beef, and rice. Allow the soup to come to a boil, then cook over low heat for about 15 minutes.
  3. Serve with salt, pepper, and Worcestershire so everyone can adjust their own seasoning as desired.
