  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 6 cups cabbage, chopped into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 (15-ounce) can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 (10-ounce) can Rotel tomatoes and green chiles
  • 1 1/3 cups water
  • 2 beef bouillon cubes, crumbled
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper


  1. Saute the minced beef: Start by sautéing the minced beef in a pan over medium heat. Cook until the meat loses its pink color, using a spoon to break it into pieces while cooking. Once browned, drain any excess fat and transfer the beef to your slow cooker.
  2. Prepare the Vegetables: Chop the cabbage into 1-inch pieces and dice the onion. Add these to the slow cooker with the beef.
  3. Add the Tomatoes and Seasonings: Pour in the crushed tomatoes and Rotel tomatoes and green chiles into the slow cooker. Add the crumbled beef bouillon cubes, water, salt, pepper, garlic powder, dried oregano, and cayenne pepper. Stir well to combine all the ingredients.
  4. Cook: Set your slow cooker to low and cook the soup for 6-8 hours, or set it to high and cook for 3-4 hours. The long cooking time allows the flavors to blend beautifully and the cabbage to become perfectly tender.
  5. Serve: Once the soup is done, give it a good stir and taste for seasoning, adjusting if necessary. Serve hot in bowls, perhaps with a sprinkle of shredded cheese on top or a dollop of sour cream for an extra layer of flavor.

This Hearty and Spicy Slow Cooker Cabbage Beef Soup is the epitome of easy and satisfying cooking. With minimal prep required, you can set your slow cooker in the morning and come home to a delicious, spicy soup that’s ready to warm you from the inside out.
