Easy Cabbage Roll Soup

Angie Robinson


Tastes just like halupki (cabbage rolls in polish) It's so good. My friend Chelly Bundy, who is a fanatastic cook, shared this with me. She is polish, and makes the best polish food around. She really knows her stuff! Chelly uses 2 tbsp of oil in the rice, and 2 tbsp to brown the meat; feel free to do the same.

She sometimes serves this with mashed potatoes.
