Crockpot cabbage soup with beef is one of those easy dinners that you can toss in the crockpot on a busy day! It’s so warm and comforting and the cabbage makes it very filling.
I’m curious how many of you use your slow cooker year round. I know it has a reputation for being a ‘winter’ appliance, but we use ours quite a bit in the summer too. It saves us from heating up the kitchen and it’s convenient no matter what the weather is like. 😉
We love using our crockpot!
This crockpot cabbage soup is packed with beef, cabbage, celery, onion, and I even threw in a carrot! Yes – a carrot, on a low carb diet.
Don’t freak out about the single carrot in this giant pot of soup – it adds a little pop of color and flavor and I literally just used one carrot throughout the whole pot of soup.
You can definitely leave the carrot out, but it only adds less than 1g net carb per serving, so I think it’s super worth it for that vibrant color and little pop of sweetness. 🙂

Cabbage – You’ll need one head of cabbage, chopped into small chunks.
Ground Beef – I used lean ground beef in this keto cabbage soup recipe but you could also try it with other types of ground meat, like chicken or turkey! And if you want to make this soup even heartier, try using cubed beef stew meat instead of ground beef.
Broth – Beef broth adds a nice savory flavor.
Veggies – In addition to the chopped cabbage you’ll also add in some chopped onion, celery, carrot, and minced garlic.
Seasoning – Italian seasoning is a nice, classic flavor for this soup but feel free to experiment with other seasoning blends.
Easy to toss in the crockpot and set it and forget it.
This soup is fairly light, but still nice and filling.
Easy to customize with other cuts of beef or types of meat.
