Here’s an easy slow cooker stuffed cabbage soup recipe your family will love! Unstuffed cabbage soup you could call it and cooks on it’s own all day in your crockpot. If you love bold flavors this homemade cabbage soup will bring you back to your childhood for sure.
If you have never made anything with cabbage you may be hesitant, I know I was at first. I am not a huge salad lover, and cabbage just felt like “an old person food” LOL…don’t know why it just did. But, I can tell you I am a lover of it now after a few yummy recipes like this slow cooker stuffed cabbage soup that all of us just loved!! It’s one of our favorite comfort foods now listed on our long list of crockpot recipes.
I made this after creating this Instant Pot stuffed cabbage casserole which I intended to be soup but it was thicker so I called it a casserole. I easily could’ve added more broth and made it a pressure cooker unstuffed cabbage soup but it was so good I didn’t bother.
Then I thought I’d attempt that in my slow cooker because why not right…and it came out amazing!! I don’t know what it is now about cabbage but it is really good! I do love my slow cooker stuffed cabbage recipe but that is labor intensive and this you literally throw it all together and the taste is almost identical, I’d have to admit this is almost better though.
The ingredients are rather simple and I generally buy whatever brand is on sale. This feeds all 5 of us easily so depending on whether you’re serving it as a main dish or a side dish it feeds a decent amount of people.
Here is what you’ll need to make this slow cooker stuffed cabbage soup recipe

Slow Cooker Stuffed Cabbage Soup

- 19 oz tomato soup
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1 onion diced
- 1 tbsp garlic salt
- 1 tsp oregano
- 1 tsp basil
- Cook ground beef and onions in a skillet on the stovetop until meat is brown. Add to your slow cooker.

Here’s what ours looks like. I will say that there is a variation to the timing depending on how soft you like your cabbage. We prefer ours with a little texture still, not mushy so the timing above reflects that. If you really want it super soft then you’d need to add maybe 30 minutes more on to the cook time, check, and add another 30 if you think it needs it.
