  • 2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • ½ cup onion chopped
  • ½ cup shallots chopped
  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 16 ounces low carb marinara sauce I used Rao's brand
  • 2 cups cauliflower riced
  • 5 cups beef broth low sodium
  • 8 cups cabbage sliced


  • Heat olive oil and garlic on medium high heat.
  • Add onions and shallots and cook until softened.
  • Add ground beef and cook until browned and no longer pink.
  • Add seasonings to beef and marinara sauce.
  • Add the riced cauliflower to the beef mixture and stir until coated.
  • Pour the beef into the crock pot.
  • Pour beef broth into crock pot and add cabbage.
  • Stir to combine everything.
  • Cook on high 3 hours or low 6 hours. If you don't have a crock pot, simply cook ground beef in a dutch oven or heavy soup pot, follow recipe and simmer on low, covered for about an hour until cabbage is tender.

Brenda's Notes:
  • This recipe was first published in January 2016 and updated with video in October 2018.
  • You could reduce the carbs more if you have just a cup as a serving instead of suggested serving.
  • If you choose to use rice instead of cauliflower then I would suggest 1 cup of cooked rice and eliminate the cauliflower.
  • You can eliminate the cauliflower in the recipe if you prefer. I feel it was a good substitute for rice which is usually in cabbage rolls. I think it thickened it nicely without being very noticeable in texture.
  • The sugar amount you see listed below is naturally made from the tomato sauce used.
  • You could simply use cooked rice in place of the amount of cauliflower I used.
  • I will tell you that not even my hubby noticed cauliflower was in this soup and everyone raved about it!
