Cabbage Roll Soup

This soup is quick and easy to make and fills that winter craving for those cabbage rolls you have not had in ages. Same flavors, healthy and delicious!


  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1/2 green pepper, chopped
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 - 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 can tomato soup
  • 1 small can tomato paste
  • 8 cups chicken or beef broth ( I use better than bouillon +water)
  • 8 cups chopped cabbage ( I use loose leaf - savoy)
  • 3/4 cups uncooked long grain rice 
  • 2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 large bay leaf
  1. In large soup pot or dutch oven, brown meat. Drain any fat. 
  2. Add chopped onion and pepper. Cook until soft. Season
  3. Add tomato soup, tomato paste and broth
  4. Add chopped cabbage, rice, worcesterdhire sauce and bay leaf.
  5. Bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer for about 30 - 45 minutes.
  6. Serve with sour cream. Serves 6 - 8
Note: If soup is too thick, add water or broth according to taste. 


  1. I'll be trying this next week. Sounds like it would warm up a cold winter night.

  2. This looks really good, Anneliese, I'm planning to make it this week-end to bring to my Dad.

  3. I made this yummy sound. It was delicious. Thanks for the recipe.

  4. Perfect ... we have been eating lots of soup this winter. It is nice to try new recipes. I recently made a Taco Soup, that was a big hit with the boys.

  5. I followed the recipe and ended up with more of a stew than soup. My soup pot was very full or else I would have added another can of tomato soup. I was disappointed but the flavor was good!

  6. This soup is delicious, it didn't last long at our house. And it really does have that cabbage roll flavor! You did say if it was too thick to add more water and broth. I added a bit more broth. It just depends on each ones preference.
