This hearty soup is packed with flavor from the beef and onion to the tomatoes and rice. What a great way to get the taste of stuffed cabbage without the work.

  • Servings: 8-10
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 30 minutes
  • Total Time: 40 minutes


1½ lb Ground Chuck
1 Large Onion, diced
½ cup Diced Green Pepper
1 Medium Head Cabbage, shredded
1× 26 oz Container Beef Stock
2× 14.5 oz cans Diced Tomatoes, undrained
1× 8 oz can Tomato Sauce
2 Tbsp Sugar
2 Tbsp Cider Vinegar
1 Boil In Bag Bag Brown Rice, uncooked


In a large Dutch oven, cook ground chuck over medium high heat until no longer pink, about 10-12 minutes. Drain. Add the onion and green pepper, then cook for 5 minutes. Add the shredded cabbage and cook for 5-7 minutes more, stirring well. Add the beef stock, diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, sugar and vinegar, then mix well. Add the uncooked rice, mix well, and bring to a simmer. Cover and cook for 7-10 minutes, or until rice is cooked through.

Helpful Tips:

The taste of this soup improves over time, so, I always make it one day before I want to serve it. This gives the flavors time to "meld". It truly tastes like stuffed cabbage but you don't have all the work.
