Hearty Cabbage Soup

I don't know how long this recipe has been in the family, but it is one of the best soups I've encountered.  Its very good served with homemade bread.  Challah in particular.  As a kid, I always ate it made with beef, but I don't eat red meat anymore, so I just use ground turkey.  If you have the patience, like beans, this soup is better on the second day.  

1 lb ground beef or turkey

Add and simmer:
6 c water
2 cans tomato paste (6 oz each)
1/2 head of cabbage, chopped
1 large onion, sliced
4 all spice berries or 1/2 t ground allspice
3 T sugar
1 T salt (or a little less)
3 peppercorns 
1 bay leaf 
2 T worcestershire sauce
