- Heat the butter or oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add the onion, celery, and carrots and sauté until onion is translucent and vegetables are starting to soften about 7 minutes. Add the garlic and sauté for 2-3 minutes. Add the potatoes, cabbage, broth, bay leaves, thyme, and salt. Cover and cook on low heat for 30 minutes until the cabbage and potatoes are soft.
- Stir in the pastrami, vinegar, and sweetener. Bring the soup to a boil over high heat. Decrease the heat to maintain a low simmer. Cook, uncovered until the cabbage is very tender and the flavors come together about 20 minutes. Serve immediately or refrigerate, covered, for up to 5 days.
