It is no secret that I am a big fan of cabbage. Some of my very favorite dishes are this easy Cabbage and Black-Eyed Pea Soup, Keto One Pan Cabbage Casserole or this cheesy Keto Taco Casserole. I love that cabbage is a low-carb vegetable that can be added to casseroles, soups or stir fry dishes to bulk up the nutrition without adding tons of carbs.
And of course, it is one of the most budget-friendly vegetables out there! If you don’t usually pick up a head of cabbage on your weekly grocery trip, add it to your list! You’ll find tons of ways to use it!
This easy and delicious Slow Cooker Cabbage Roll Soup is based off of my favorite One Pan Cabbage Casserole. It has many of the same elements, but in soup form. I love to top mine with shredded cheddar and green onions to really make it a hearty meal!

How to Make Cabbage Roll Soup
Though this unstuffed cabbage roll soup recipe is labeled a slow cooker soup, it can be easily converted to an Instant Pot or stove top recipe. I share the adaptations for each method below.
The general method is the same: cook the beef and drain off any fat. Add the remaining ingredients and stir well. Cover and allow the cabbage to cook down and give the flavors a chance to meld.
1. Slow Cooker Cabbage Soup:
Brown meat in a large skillet, drain off any grease. Add the cooked meat to the bottom of the slow cooker, add remaining ingredients, stir well. Cover and cook on high for 3-4 hours or on low for 7-8 hours.
2. Instant Pot Cabbage Soup:
Use the sauté function and lightly spray the bottom of the pan. Brown the meat and drain off any grease, turn the sauté function off. Add remaining ingredients, stir well. Secure the lid to the instant pot and make sure the steam valve is CLOSED.
Set the pressure cooker cycle for 15 minutes. It will take the machine 15-20 minutes to get up to pressure before the 15 minute cook cycle begins. Once the cook time ends allow the steam to naturally release for 5-10 minutes, then carefully release the steam manually.
3. Stove Top Cabbage Soup:
Heat a large stockpot or dutch oven to medium heat, lightly spray the bottom. Brown the meat and drain off any grease. Add remaining ingredients, stir well. Bring mixture to a simmer and cover, reduce heat to low and simmer 30-40 minutes until the cabbage has reduced in size.
Can I Freeze Cabbage Soup?
Yes, this keto cabbage soup freezes well. The cabbage changes texture slightly once frozen, but it’s a hearty vegetable and can withstand being frozen.
