How do you make Slow Cooker Cabbage Roll Soup?
Though this 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. But 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.
Slow Cooker Method:
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.
Instant Pot Method:
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 the cooked meat to the bottom of the slow cooker, 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.
Stove Top Method:
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.
