I got it in my head a while back that I really wanted stuffed cabbage for dinner.  So I ran to the market and got all the ingredients.  I was tired when I got home, so they were shoved in the fridge and forgotten for a few days.  Here and there I would say to myself, "Self, stuffed cabbage sounds delicious today," and I would reply, "Self, you are so right.  But stuffed cabbage is a lot of work, and you are tired." Another day would pass.  And another, and another. Until suddenly I realized if I didn't make the stuffed cabbage soon, my meat would be spoiled, and the cabbage would rot.  So, I said, "Self!  Grab your bootstraps and get thee a movin'." 

The thing is, we had friends coming over that afternoon and I had time to quick clean the house (I have five kids, they're gross) or make stuffed cabbage.  Not both.  So I brought the ingredients out to give them a once over.  And realized, there is absolutely no reason for me to slave over cabbage rolling all afternoon when I can stick it all in a pot to cook and end up with the same delicious flavors.  So, I did that, my kids vacuumed, and I watched four episodes of Doctor Who.  Thusly, my Stuffed Cabbage Soup was born.

  1. This looks amazing.... but I have this 'thing' with minute rice. Can I use short grain white rice and just simmer longer?

    1. sorry for the late reply - yes short grain white rice should work fine, but you'll probably need extra liquid. water or broth would work :-)

  2. I made this over the weekend and it was DEEEEElicious! Thanks for the recipe!


I eat up comments!!! Nom nom nom.
