  • Combine water, cabbage, tomato puree, tomato soup, rice, beef bouillon, salt, and pepper in a slow cooker; add ground beef mixture.

  • Cook on High for 8 hours.

Cook's Notes:

Adjust amount of ground beef or cabbage to your preference. Tomato sauce is a good alternative for puree too.

White rice can be substituted for the brown rice, if desired.

This can also be simmered on the stovetop, 1 to 1 1/2 hours.

I made this today and it came out fabulous! Only change I made was to add the rice (Texmati Rice) about 1/2 hour before we were ready to eat. So delicious. Highly recommend. Thanks so much for sharing! Read More

I do not think it needs to be in the crockpot for 8 hours on high. Came out thick like stew definitely hearty. It had good taste but next time I will cook it on low and possibly add more water to the recipe. Read More

Hearty and flavourful and no need to cook the dish for 8 hours unless the beef has not been properly cooked and crock pot is slow. Next time I make this will add some garlic.:) For me it actually has a more stew like consistency. Read More

I really liked this soup. I did add a teaspoon of worchestershire sauce, and about 1/2 t minced garlic because I was afraid it would be bland. I didnt use the tomato soup, because i grow tomatoes and I used a blender full plus 1/2 more of pureed fresh tomatoes and a teaspoon and a half of sugar to make it taste more tomato soup like. an enjoyable soup with ingredients we grow and had at hand. thanks for sharing Read More

More like a stew than a soup but my husband prefers this. I did add 1 clove diced garlic, allspice, little vinegar and tbsp brown sugar. Those are the spices my grandmother would add. Came out great. Freezes well. Will make this again. Maybe a new soup for the Super Bowl party we have. Read More

I scaled the recipe to 8 servings as I only had 1 lb ground beef. For seasoning I omitted the salt I added Worchestire sauce minced garlic garlic powder onion powder Mrs Dash garlic & herb black pepper and a bay leaf. I used 2 pouches of salt free Herbox beef boullion for the cubes. I shredded the cabbage in my food processor and weighed out 2 lbs. I had to add 4 cups of water. I cooked the soup on the stove top and it was ready in 90 minutes. I served over rice instead of adding it to the soup as my son has texture issues. #AllrecipesAllstarsCanada #SoupStewChili Read More

This is tasty. I doubled the recipe and it filled my large stick pot. I found the liquid to be adequate but I made the rice separately and added it to the bowls as I served. I always add a sprinkle of cinnamon to my cabbage soup in my bowl as others don t like the flavor. I would make this again. Read More

A good quick crock pot dinner that will keep you warm in the winter. Is use beef base instead or kitchen bouquet instead of bullion cubes to cut down the salt. A good Jewish rye finishes it off great Read More

This was an excellent recipe idea! Every time I make stuffed cabbage, it's a disaster. This is a no fail recipe! I just replaced the 4 cups of water and beef bullion with 32oz of beef broth, and added about 1/3 cup of ketchup (just like grandma added to her stuffed cabbage). I cooked it on the stove top for 1 hour and 30 minutes. It came out perfectly and tastes so, so good!!! Thank you!! Read More
