Surprisingly Simple Cabbage Beef Soup
1 lb. lean ground sirloin, browned and drained
1 sweet onion, chopped (about 1 to 1½ cups)

Spray a large pot with cooking spray. Heat the oil over medium heat. Saute the onion, carrots and cabbage for about 8 minutes, stirring often. Add the Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper and garlic powder. Stir about 2 more minutes. Add tomato sauce, beef, water, potatoes and kidney beans. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer until vegetables are tender, approximately 10 minutes.
