Rated as 4.05 out of 5 Stars

"I made up this recipe after having a craving for cabbage rolls but no time to make them. This is a healthy, hearty recipe. So simple to make and can be adjusted to your liking. You can easily double the recipe and freeze leftovers in portions. Serve piping hot with crusty bread or garlic toast."

Directions

  1. Bring converted rice and 3 cups water to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender and the liquid has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes.
  2. Heat a large soup pot over medium-high heat. Cook and stir beef in the hot pan until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes; drain and discard grease.
  3. Stir 2 cups water, cooked rice, pasta sauce, tomato soup, cabbage, onion, salt, black pepper, and hot sauce into beef. Bring soup to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and cover. Simmer until cabbage is soft and tender, 20 to 30 minutes.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • You can substitute broth for water. Make this soup as thick or as thin as you like by adjusting the water/broth at the end.
  • You can substitute canned diced tomatoes for the pasta sauce if you like it a little chunkier, and if you like even more of a tomato taste, add some tomato paste (but remember to add more water or broth).
  • This soup can be made super-quick if you cook and freeze your ground beef in large batches, then just take out what you need. All you are doing is reheating!
  • Some like to add sour cream or shredded cheese on top when serving. I love it with hot sauce in my own bowl.
  • This can also be made in the slow cooker. It freezes perfectly.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

Great! I too tweaked it by adding V-8 juice instead of the pasta sauce because I wanted more of a soup consistency.

I did cut the rice down to 1 cup and upped the water in the soup to 5 cups from the 2 cups the recipe called for. Tasted very close to cabbage rolls. I would try maybe adding more meat and maybe...

I used this recipe as a base and tailored it to my family's taste, like I normally do. I used 1 lb 99% lean ground turkey seasoned with pepper and about a half tablespoon of granulated garlic (...

This is a good hearty soup! I did tweak it after reading some reviews. I browned the meat with the onions and seasoned it with black pepper, salt and garlic. I only used half of the pasta sauce ...

I'm a sad momma with this recipe tonight. For starters, it has not where near enough water to make it a soup. Secondly, almost no flavor, I had to add TONS of salt, and Herbs de Provance, and ...

Like many others, I made a few changes. To make it more weight watchers friendly, I used a little less than a pound of hamburger, and used 3/4 cup instant brown rice rather than white rice. I st...
