This soup has all the flavors of traditional cabbage rolls, but so much easier to make. All you have to do is brown the ground beef, and your slow cooker (or Instant Pot!) will do the rest of the work for you.
In a large skillet, warm up the olive oil until it is hot. Add the ground beef, onion and garlic to the pan. Break up the ground beef into crumbles while cooking until it is no longer pink - about 10 minutes.
While beef is browning, turn on slow cooker and place all other ingredients in the slow cooker and give a good stir.
Drain any excess fat from the ground beef and then stir beef into the rest of the ingredients. Cover and cook on high for 3-4 hours or low for 6-7 hours.
You can also do this in your Instant Pot!Set Instant Pot to sauté setting and heat olive oil. Add beef, onion, and garlic until beef is crumbled and browned. Dump out meat into a colander to drain any excess fat and then return to the Instant Pot.Add all other ingredients and stir together.Set to vent to the closed setting and pressure cook for 15 minutes. Let steam release naturally._______________________________________If you want to use a simple stovetop method, heat olive oil in a pot or dutch oven on the stove.
