Heat the olive oil over medium-high heat in a large soup pot or heavy-bottomed pot, such as a Dutch oven. Sautee the onion until translucent.

Brown the meat

Add the ground beef, ground cumin and paprika and cook, breaking up any larger pieces of meat using a wooden spoon, until browned, about 5-7 minutes.


Add the tomatoes

Stir in the tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, salt, black pepper, sugar (or honey), and chicken stock.


Stir in the cabbage

Add the shredded cabbage and white rice. Cover it with the lid and bring the cabbage rice soup to a boil.


Simmer & serve

Once boiled, reduce the heat to a simmer and let it simmer for 25-30 minutes. Remove from the heat, add the vinegar, and garnish with parsley.
