One of the meals that makes me think of my grandmother is baked cabbage rolls. I enjoy the tastes, but I don’t enjoy the work that goes into making them. Some steps, like boiling the cabbage, making the filling, rolling everything up, and then baking it, can take all day. This cabbage roll soup tastes just like the original, but it only takes a short time to make.

Cabbage Roll Soup Recipe




  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 pound ground beef I use 90% lean
  • 1 onion finely diced
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 4 cups coarsely chopped green cabbage
  • 2 carrots peeled, quartered and sliced
  • 4 cups beef broth
  • 3 8 ounce cans tomato sauce
  • 1/2 cup uncooked long grain rice
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons parsley



  • Within a big saucepan, bring the olive oil to a temperature of medium-high. To taste, season the ground beef with salt and pepper after adding it to the mixture.
  • For roughly four to five minutes, cook the beef while breaking it up with a spatula until it receives a browned appearance. Cook the onion and garlic for two to three minutes after adding them.
  • You should put the rice, the bay leaf, the brown sugar, the cabbage, the carrots, the beef broth, and the tomato sauce into the pot. Add salt and pepper to taste, and season with salt.
  • Place over low heat and continue cooking for twenty-five minutes, or until the rice is tender. Take out the bay leaf and throw it away.
  • Garnish with chopped parsley, and then serve.




  • As a first step in the preparation of your unstuffed cabbage soup, you will need to utilise some ground beef. I make use of 90% lean beef because it has a wonderful flavour and does not cause the soup to become excessively greasy.
  • Initially, the meat and a small amount of onion are fried in the pot before the remaining ingredients are added to the mixture.
    The most important ingredient in cabbage roll soup is ground beef.


  • Once the beef is ready to be cooked, the remaining ingredients, which include rice, carrots, tomato, spices, and cabbage, are added to the pot. Everything should be brought to a simmer, and dinner will be ready in about twenty-five minutes flat.
  • All of the components for cabbage roll soup, including beef, cabbage, veggies, and seasonings, are placed inside of a soup pot.
  • In the end, you will have a soup that is not only hearty and rich, but also has a variety of flavours.
  • Despite the fact that I am aware that simmering a soup for a longer period of time helps to develop the flavours in many situations, you do not want to overcook the soup in this particular instance since the rice will become mushy.

  • From the beef to the vegetables to the rice, there is so much going on in this dish that it can be considered a full dinner that is prepared in a single pot. To complete the dinner, I frequently serve this cabbage roll soup with a side of crusty bread or a green salad.
  • This is done for the purpose of completing the meal. Even my children enjoy this one; in fact, they didn’t even mind the chunks of cabbage, which is something that they generally might not consume.
  • This soup is so delicious that I frequently prepare a second batch of it simply so that we have plenty to eat for a few days after we have finished eating it. On a chilly evening, it is simply great, and because it can be prepared in a short amount of time, it is also perfect for a hectic weekday.

  2. You don’t like ground beef, do you? Instead, you may try ground turkey!
  3. It is possible to use brown rice in instead of white rice; but, doing so will take around twenty minutes of additional cooking time.
