Instructions Checklist
  • Heat oil in a large heavy pot over medium-high heat. Add ground beef; cook, stirring often, until the meat is cooked through and starting to brown slightly, 6 to 7 minutes. Add cabbage, onion, carrots and celery; cook, stirring often, until the onion is translucent, about 5 minutes.

  • Add brown sugar, paprika, salt, pepper and cayenne to the beef mixture; cook over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, until the spices are toasted, about 1 minute. Stir in tomato sauce and broth, scraping the bottom of the pot with a wooden spoon to release any browned bits. Bring the soup to a boil over medium-high heat. Stir in rice. Reduce heat to low; cover and cook until the rice is tender, 30 to 35 minutes. If desired, sprinkle with parsley before serving.

Tips

To make ahead: Refrigerate for up to 5 days or freeze for up to 3 months.

We loved it!! Didn't change a thing. Made it and shared with friends who all wanted the recipe! Go to for meals for shut ins. Have tried it with Italian sausage instead, and some may like that, but we prefer it with the ground beef. Freezes beautifully. Read More
