Cabbage Roll Soup for a Crowd

Rated as 4.5 out of 5 Stars
229

"Everything you would find in a cabbage roll but in a soup, plus bonus - no rolling and tucking! This will feed 8 to 10 people and freezes beautifully. I've cooked the rice separately so that it doesn't absorb the liquid, which is also better for leftovers."

  1. Heat a large pot over medium-high heat and cook ground beef and pork until browned and crumbly, about 5 minutes. Season with 1 teaspoon salt and pepper. Drain meat in a colander and set aside.
  2. Heat olive oil in the same pot, add onion, and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, 1 minute more.
  3. Pour in red wine and deglaze the pot, scraping off all the browned bits of the bottom. Cook until wine evaporates, 3 to 5 minutes. Mix in cabbage and cook, stirring frequently, for 5 minutes. Add browned beef, tomato puree, beef broth, diced tomatoes, Worcestershire sauce, bay leaves, oregano, 1 teaspoon salt, thyme, and red pepper flakes. Bring to a low boil, reduce heat, and simmer until cabbage is soft, about 45 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, bring water and rice to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until rice is tender and water has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes.
  5. Add lemon juice and brown sugar to the soup and cook for 5 minutes. Spoon 3 tablespoons of rice into the bottom of each bowl and spoon soup mixture over the rice. Add a few drops of Sriracha sauce to each bowl.
