I love my Lazy Cabbage Rolls recipe, which is a deconstructed version of the original.

Saving time to get the classic flavour, it’s why I love to make One-Pot Lasagna Soup or Slow Cooker Easy Lasagna. Much less work and time than making the traditional variety.

Cabbage rolls are one of those meals that could be a lunch or filling dinner. Yet the downside is that they take so much time to prep and cook. I hate spending more time making a dinner than enjoying it.

This is why I love this Slow Cooker Cabbage Roll Soup recipe. You get all the flavour but it’s not as time consuming to make. Being a slow cooker meal, it’s a no-fuss meal that is ready when you are.

Crock Pot Cabbage Roll Soup Ingredients

This cabbage roll soup recipe has cabbage and ground beef, and several servings of vegetables. It has a tomato based broth, and the perfect blend of spices. Everything together gives this soup it’s amazing taste.

What to Serve with Cabbage Roll Soup

Since this soup is so filling, I like to think of it as a main course dinner. Yet, smaller servings would make it great for lunch. Even smaller yet and it’s a great appetizer or wonderful to bring to a potluck.

I suggest serving this soup with these Easy Baking Powder Biscuits, a simple yet perfect side. And great for dipping!

How Long is Cabbage Roll Soup Good For?

Once completely prepared, this soup can last in a sealed container, in the refrigerator for three to four days. If you want it at a later date, I suggest freezing some in between. I talk about how to freeze this soup below.

Can you Freeze Cabbage Roll Soup?

Yes, you can! Soups are great for freezing for another dinner, or in individual-sized portions too. I’d make sure not to overcook the rice, no matter if you’re enjoying it now or later though. Mushy rice just isn’t preferred.

I like to freeze some of this soup, for those days when you need a quick meal. I defrost in the fridge the night before and re-heat in a pot on the stove.
