Stuffed Cabbage Soup
Cook Time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour


  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 ½ pounds lean ground beef
  • 4 cups chopped green cabbage
  • 2 cups chopped yellow onion
  • 1 ¼ cups chopped carrots
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 (15 ounce) can no-salt-added tomato sauce
  • 4 cups unsalted chicken broth
  • ¼ cup medium-grain brown rice
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley (optional)


Step 1
Heat oil in a large heavy pot over medium-high heat. Add ground beef; cook, stirring often, until the meat is cooked through and starting to brown slightly, 6 to 7 minutes. Add cabbage, onion, carrots and celery; cook, stirring often, until the onion is translucent, about 5 minutes.

Step 2
Add brown sugar, paprika, salt, pepper and cayenne to the beef mixture; cook over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, until the spices are toasted, about 1 minute. Stir in tomato sauce and broth, scraping the bottom of the pot with a wooden spoon to release any browned bits. Bring the soup to a boil over medium-high heat. Stir in rice. Reduce heat to low; cover and cook until the rice is tender, 30 to 35 minutes. If desired, sprinkle with parsley before serving.
