An easy way to enjoy all the flavors of cabbage rolls. This soup will be your family’s new favorite! 


  • 1 to 1 1/2 pounds ground beef (depending on how meaty you like it, I used 1.3 pounds)
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 67 cups beef broth (6 for a thicker soup, 7 for a thinner soup)
  • 1 (14.5 oz) can fire-roasted diced tomatoes
  • 1 (8 oz) can tomato sauce
  • 2 Tbsp tomato paste
  • 1/4 tsp allspice
  • 2/3 cup long grain white rice, uncooked
  • 56 cups cabbage (810 ounces), cut into 1/2 inch strips


  1. Turn your Instant Pot to the saute setting. When the display says HOT add in the ground beef and break it up*. Brown for about 5 minutes and then drain off any excess grease and discard. Add in the onion, Worcestershire, paprika, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Cook the onion for about 3 minutes.
  2. Pour in the broth and scrape the bottom of the pot. Dump in the tomatoes, tomato sauce, tomato paste, allspice, rice and cabbage. 
  3. Cover the pot and secure the lid. Make sure the valve is set to sealing. Set the SOUP button to 4 minutes. When the time is up let the pot sit for 10 minutes and then move the valve to venting. Remove the lid. Stir the soup. Salt and pepper to taste. 
  4. Ladle into bowls and serve. You can top with grated mozzarella cheese if desired.
