Cabbage Roll Soup

  • Total Time: 45 minutes
  • Yield: Serves 4-6 1x


Super yummy cabbage roll flavors in a cabbage and beef soup for no rolling muss or fuss. This soup comes together in 30 minutes and is perfect for meal prep!


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 cups (about 1/4 large head) shredded cabbage
  • 28 ounces crushed tomatoes (fire roasted is a nice choice!)
  • 2 cups beef stock
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt


  1. Preheat a soup pot to medium heat with a drizzle of oil. Add the ground beef and cook, breaking it up as you go with a spoon until the meat is browned, crumbly, and cooked through.
  2. Add the onion and garlic and stir for 2 minutes until fragrant.
  3. Add the cabbage and stir for 5 minutes to soften the veggies.
  4. Add the tomatoes, stock, vinegar, sugar, and salt. Reduce the heat slightly and allow the soup to come to a simmer.
  5. Simmer the cabbage roll soup uncovered for 15 minutes until the cabbage is soft. Stir a time or two during this time.
  6. Taste the soup for seasoning; add more salt to your preference. EAT.


This keeps really well in the fridge for at least a week and as long as you need in the freezer.

Beef stock is a great choice here, but chicken or veggie stock are fine too if that's what you have on hand.

This is a great soup to try out wild game such as ground venison or ground elk. Check out the info in the post for more notes on flavor!
