  4. Add in your blended tomatoes and mix, cook on low heat for a minute or two. Until the mixture starts to boil up.
  5. Take the beef out of the water and slice into little bit sized pieces. Add the beef back into the broth, then add in the tomato mixture, potatoes, and bay leaves. Let boil until the potatoes are tender. Add in the shredded cabbage, parsley, dill, salt and pepper. Mix and let boil for 5-10 minutes or until cabbage reaches your desired crunchiness.
