Slow Cooker Cabbage Roll Soup
I must admit that I didn’t think cabbage roll soup would be that good. I was convinced that the cabbage would be smelly (I’m picturing the cabbage soup diet) and that it wouldn’t be flavorful or satisfying. I am so glad that I was DEAD WRONG. This soup was satisfying, flavorful, and very appetizing. The cabbage was my favorite part of this soup. It was the perfect texture. Next time I’ll add in a bit more!
I also must admit that I’ve never had cabbage rolls in my life. At least that I can remember. Now I’m totally tempted to try them in the slow cooker. I LOVED the combination of flavors in this recipe. My daughter, son, son’s friend and husband all did too. This recipe is a keeper for sure. Add the ingredients to your shopping list and try it this week!

What Slow Cooker Did You Use?
To make Slow Cooker Cabbage Roll Soup I used I used my Ninja Auto-iQ 6 Quart Slow Cooker.* My favorite feature of this slow cooker is that it has a stove top function. This is perfect for browning the beef and onions before slow cooking the soup!
