Slow Cooker Cabbage Soup Recipe (2024)

Last Modified: by Paleo Leaper · This post may contain affiliate links · Leave a Comment

Think of this as an "unstuffed" cabbage soup, in that you do not need to spend precious time on rolling and folding leaves of cabbage, neatly arranging them in the bottom of the pot; you just roughly chop the cabbage and add the leaves to the slow cooker with the already browned beef and let all of these stays in warmth for 6 hours or so.

By the time school, work, or workout is over, your healthy dinner is ready and waiting.

With such basic ingredients, this slow food could become part of your own customized Paleo meal plan - you may even decide that you love it enough to make it once a week!

Choose any kind of ground beef that you like (it is not all the same), or opt for what is available at your local store or butcher, and even if you can't afford all grass-fed, it shouldn't stop you from enjoying Paleo cooking.

Regular ground beef contains the highest amount of fat, and it is juicy because of it! Ground chuck is meat that comes from the shoulder area - not as fatty, but still full of flavor. Then there is ground round from near the tail - great for sauces and mixing with vegetables.

Choose the best quality meat you can find, then peel and chop some veggies for a superb side dish: namely sweet potato and rutabaga mash. You can have a small bowl on the side or add a few spoonfuls to the soup to thicken it up - and that is how a soup becomes a stew.
