I always liked stuffed cabbage and have seen many recipes through the years for "Stuffed Cabbage Casserole" as well as "Stuffed Cabbage Soup". I wanted to try my own version and came up with this recipe. It's a nice, hearty soup that will warm you up during the cold weather.

How to Make Hearty Stuffed Cabbage Soup (Halupki Soup)

Step-by-Step

  1. Brown meat in a 4-5 quart Dutch oven over medium high heat. Do not drain.
  2. Add onion, garlic and bouillon. Mix well and cook for 3-4 minutes or until onion starts to soften.
  3. Add the cabbage. Mix well. Cover and cook for 6-8 minutes, stirring often, until cabbage wilts.
  4. Add the tomatoes, tomato sauce, beef stock, beef broth, sugar, vinegar and rice. Mix well to combine. Cover and cook an additional 10-12 minutes to combine flavors.
  5. NOTE: Instead of using the bouillon and brown rice, sometimes I use a box of beef flavored Rice-a-Roni instead ...... (replace beef broth with water)..... add in step 4 and cook a bit longer until rice and vermicelli are cooked thru ....
