I grew up on homemade soups, in fact most dinners in my house growing up either started with soup, or soup was the main dish. My Mom usually threw whatever she had in the refrigerator and would whip up a new soup. I was a pretty picky eater, but I always loved when she made cabbage soup. This recipe reminds me of one of those soups she would whip up. Feel free to add any veggies you might need to use up. Crushed or diced tomatoes both work fine.

  1. Don’t release your adult children out into the world without teaching them this recipe.

  2. Absolutely love this recipe!  I cook it all the times!  Easy and tasty and even taste better the next day 🙂 

  3. This soup was delicious. The only change I made was to make the rice separately and added some to each bowl before serving so the leftovers wouldn’t have soggy rice. Thanks for sharing this recipe. I will definitely make it again.

  4. Love the recipe, but gave away my instant pot, can you send recipe for old fashion Dutch pot ? Thanks Mary 

  5. Very good soup doubled it to feed our branding crew. Only thing I did different was add 2 garlic cloves and sprinkled cayenne pepper to give it a little heat.. served with crusty bread. The cowboys all loved it went back for seconds.

  6. Delicious and hits the spot on a cold winter night.  I made it in my Instant Pot.  I know this soup will be even more delicious as leftovers.  Your recipes never disappoint!

  7. I LOVE this soup. It’s very filling and wonderful to have in the freezer ready to thaw out when I know I’m going to be busy (I need to make another batch, now that I think of it). The only problem is that while I eat to be full, my boyfriend gets upset when there aren’t enough calories in a meal!

  8. Amazing recipe!  What is a serving size?

  9. I added a chopped clove of garlic. It was great.

  10. I made this for New Year’s Day. We’re vegan, so I subbed Beyond Beef for the ground beef and veggie broth for the beef broth. I also wanted to cover my black-eyed peas with one dish, so I threw in a cup of dry black-eyed peas and 2 extra cups of broth and then cooked as directed in my Instant Pot (the cook time for unsoaked black-eyed peas is conveniently the same as the cook time in the original recipe). It was delicious!!

  11. Delicious 😋

  12. This is one of my favorite soups ❤️
    Can I freeze leftovers?

  13. Delicious soup for fall or winter. I added 3 cloves of garlic, but the original recipe is just fine

  14. Delicious and easy to throw together. Perfect for a cool Fall day!

  15. This soup is great. I’m trying to “rush” fall and am craving soups. Great recipe as always.

  16. Hello, how long do you recommend cooking in a crock pot?

  17. Loved it, made with home canned tomotoes

  18. This is an excellent recipe and I’ve made it several times with success. However the last few attempts have not been very good. I occasionally get a burn error, and then when it finally preheats the cabbage is quite crunchy. I’m following the directions the same as I always do. I have been mixing everything before starting the cooking process. Maybe just let it cook in layers instead? Would the cabbage steam better? Thanks!

  19. I subbed ground turkey, which only saved a point, but the recipe was delicious! Everything else I followed exactly, and it has a great flavor. My 16yr old son peeked in the pot while I was making it and said it reminded him of “kitchen sick soup” that he had at a friends house once and raved about. Will make again for sure!

  20. I used ground turkey instead of beef.  It was delicious and so full of flavor!
