HOW TO MAKE KETO CABBAGE ROLL SOUP

I need quick dinners, which usually means Crock-pot meals or putting my Instant Pot to work. Since it has been cooler lately, I’ve been in the mood for soup. My favorite part about soup is that it’s typically a one-pot meal. Also, most soup recipes make quite a bit of making lunch easier for the next couple of days.

This Unstuffed Cabbage Soup is keto/low carb friendly and can be made either in the Instant PotCrock-Pot, or stove. I’ve posted directions for each below for your convenience. This Unstuffed Cabbage Soup turned out fabulous. Adding the Bragg’s Aminos gave it such rich flavor without adding a lot of carbs. You can always add riced cauliflower to the recipe if you miss the rice, usually in cabbage rolls. I thought it turned out great as is.

Step 1: Turn Instant Pot on Sauté and brown ground beef with diced onions and garlic, then drain. I use an 80/20 mixture of ground beef.

Step 2: Add beef mixture back to the Instant Pot, then add all other ingredients. Place lid on Instant Pot and turn to lock position. Turn Instant Pot off Sauté by pressing the off button, press the soup bottom, and set the time for 15 minutes. Allow Instant Pot to come to pressure and complete the soup cycle.

Step 6: After the cycle is over, do a quick release of the steam valve. I always place a dishtowel on the valve, so it doesn’t spew hot steam on my hand.

    Made this last night for dinner with a few modifications (just 1 lb of 85/15 burger, 1/2 a head of cabbage, low sodium soy sauce, and 4 C unsalted beef broth) and it was awesome! Both the hubby and I loved it. Definitely a keeper! So easy to make and plenty of leftovers.

  2. This Unstuffed Keto Cannage Roll soup is spectacular! I’ve made it numerous times. The recipe is perfect as is, however, for an over the top touch, add around 1/4 cup of heavy cream. I double this recipe because I’m happy to have leftovers. It freezes well.

    This is always a favorite recipe that is in our weekly Keto rotation. I do like to add my own little touches to this great recipe such as fennel, basil, and a bay leaf. I had never used Coconut Aminos until I discovered this recipe and believe me it’s truly a game changer and gives the broth a lot of depth. I also think the pressure cooker is key because I’ve prepared a similar recipe on the stove and the taste is 100% more developed using the Instant Pot. Thank you Kasey for this wonderful recipe!

    1. Tomato paste is much thicker and stronger than tomato sauce. I’ve only made it with tomato sauce so I can’t say if it’s possible to somehow make tomato paste work. You’d have to use way less.

    I made this using regular soy sauce. I’m not doing keto just wanted a recipe for my InstaPot. It needs more seasoning. Was a little bland for me. I will make it again but with some spice.

    1. Bragg’s Aminos has quite a bit more flavor than regular soy sauce to me. That being said, everyone’s taste buds are different feel free to spice it up how you prefer.
