Cabbage Roll Soup
It is good.
2 teaspoons olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
1 pound lean ground beef
1 onion, finely diced
3 garlic cloves, minced
4 cups coarsely chopped green cabbage
2 carrots peeled, quartered and sliced
4 cups beef broth
1 large can crushed tomatoes, or whole tomatoes crushed by hand
1/2 cup uncooked long grain rice
2 bay leaves
3 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons parsley
In a large pot, cook beef and onion until meat is brown. Add garlic, cook additional 2 minutes.
Add the cabbage, beef broth, tomato sauce, carrots, rice, bay leaves, brown sugar, salt, oregano, and pepper.
Bring to a boil. Then, reduce the heat to simmer and cover the pot. Cook until rice is tender, 25 minutes.
Remove the bay leaves before serving.
Serve with a good favorite bread or dinner rolls. Enjoy.
I had homemade stewed tomatoes from my daughter still in my freezer
It’s almost gone …
personally…from now on when I want “Cabbage Roll Soup” I’ll make albondigas (meatballs; minus the mint) with rice in the meatballs instead of all through soup. this is good; if you don’t feel like making albondigas.
I almost added gochujang. But I’ll do that the next time I have some kimchi.
It does look delicious.
For this I did use self control and stuck with flavors of original idea.
