Cabbage Roll Soup is perfect for people who love to eat Cabbage Rolls, but don’t have the time (or patience) to make them. Because let’s face it. They ain’t easy!
This week I’m participating in the Food Bloggers Challenge! I was tasked to create a recipe using the feature ingredient of the week. This week it’s cabbage and I’m making a yummy Cabbage Roll Soup.
It’s been awhile since I’ve used cabbage in our meals. It’s not that I don’t like cabbage because I do enjoy it. I think it’s just that my favourite recipes don’t use it as a main ingredient.
I’ve made cabbage rolls in the past and they were the first thing I thought to make this week. The recipe I like is for unrolled cabbage rolls made with ground turkey. My aunt makes the best cabbage rolls and hers are rolled perfectly. When I tried her recipe, they did not turn out as pretty!
Cabbage Roll Soup
This Cabbage Roll Soup is everything I love about a cabbage roll, but easier to make. It’s also made in the slow cooker which saves me from slaving over the stove all day. It’s slow cooker weather right now anyways and this soup is perfect to eat on a frosty day.
How to Make Cabbage Roll Soup
This recipe starts out in the frying pan. Add the onion, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, paprika, ground beef and salt to a large skillet. Brown the ground beef and soften the onions.
Now it’s time to bring out your slow cooker. Mine always is on my counter. Add the cabbage, oregano, basil, tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, water and ground beef mixture. Stir to combine.
Put the lid on and cook on low for 8 to 10 hours. Your house is going to smell soooo good.

In the last half hour, cook the rice and add it to the slow cooker. If you add it earlier, it will get mushy.
How to Make on the Stovetop
- Use all the same ingredients and measurements. Start by cooking the ground beef, onions and garlic in a large pot over medium heat.
- Once the ground beef is cooked, add in the rest of the ingredients except the rice. Bring to a boil and then reduce the heat to medium low. Simmer for 1 hour.
- Add in the cooked rice before serving.
What to Serve with Cabbage Roll Soup
Though Cabbage Roll Soup is filling on its own, it’s always nice to have something a little extra to enjoy it with. Try a buttered dinner roll to sop up all that delicious savoury broth. It’s also yummy with a grilled cheese sandwich for a satisfying lunch.
To make it creamy, add a dollop of sour cream to each bowl and swirl it around. Soooo good!
Can You Freeze Cabbage Roll Soup
Yes, you can freeze Cabbage Roll Soup. In fact, it’s very freezer-friendly. Stock up your deep freezer so you can enjoy this easy soup recipe all winter long. It makes a great lunch to bring to work with you. So hearty and filling.
