INGREDIENTS

1 pound lean ground beef (93% to 96% lean)
Salt, to taste
1 large white onion, finely chopped
3 garlic cloves, peeled, minced
1½ teaspoons sweet paprika
½ teaspoon dried thyme
2 cans (14.5 ounces each) petite diced tomatoes
1 can (8 ounces) regular or no-salt-added tomato sauce
5 cups unsalted beef broth or stock
4 cups chopped green cabbage
Freshly cracked black pepper
1 cup cooked brown rice


PREPARATION

1. Place ground beef in a large soup pot set over high heat. Season with salt and pepper and use a potato masher to break it into small pieces as it browns. Drain off fat and reduce heat to medium low.

2. Add onion, garlic, paprika and thyme. Cook until the onions are soft, about 5 to 7 minutes.

3. Add the tomatoes, tomato sauce, beef stock and cabbage, and season with the remaining salt and black pepper to taste.
 
4. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low. Cover and simmer until the cabbage is soft, about 35 minutes.

5. Add the cooked brown rice and simmer 5 more minutes. Serve hot. 

Serves 8, 1½ cups each
