Print this recipe
Comfort food might not seem like the best choice when you're on a diet, but this hearty beef and cabbage soup is actually super healthy. Lean ground beef, cabbage and beef broth make a soup that's low in carbs and fat while still being rich in flavor. To top it all off, the recipe cooks in a slow cooker, which means minimal fuss and effort are needed to get dinner on the table.
Modify this soup to suit your taste. Consider adding other herbs and spices to the mix such as cumin, smoked paprika or chili powder. You can also change the toppings to shredded cheese, fresh herbs or raw onions.
