What You’ll Need

It’s basically an unstuffed cabbage roll simmered in a flavorful tomato-based broth. The ingredients include:

  • Ground beef – You can use a leaner ground beef for this recipe such as 93/7 but even if you use a lean cut you’ll want to drain the excess fat from the beef before make your soup.
  • Onion – I almost always use a yellow onion but you can use a white onion if a yellow isn’t available.
  • Garlic – Garlic makes everything better! Use fresh garlic and mince it yourself or buy a jar of minced garlic and use that to save a little time.
  • Cabbage – Regular green cabbage is best for this recipe. Cut it into bite sized pieces before cooking.
  • Tomatoes – You’ll be using diced tomatoes and tomato sauce to make this simple. If you want this to be a keto recipe make sure you choose a brand that has no added sugars.
  • Beef broth – Beef broth gives this dish a deeper depth of flavor but in a pinch you can use chicken broth.
  • Carrot – Just a little bit of carrot is all you need!
  • Worcestershire sauce – This is the secret to the distinct flavor of the beef in cabbage roll soup. Don’t skip it!
  • Apple cider vinegar – Just a little vinegar helps to offset the acid in the tomatoes and brighten the flavors in the soup.
  • Spices – You’ll use a blend of parsley, oregano, bay leaves, salt, & pepper
