John and I love cabbage rolls, but I am to lazy to prepare them. This soup came out so delicious that we did not miss the actually rolls. Yummy!
2 teaspoons olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
1 pound Circle B Ranch Ground Pork
1 onion finely diced
2 teaspoons minced garlic

2 carrots peeled, quartered and sliced

24 oz Marina's Tomato Sauce
1/2 cup uncooked brown rice
1 bay leaf
3 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons parsley
Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium high heat. Add the ground pork and season with salt and pepper to taste.
Cook, breaking up the meat with a spatula, until pork is browned, approximately 4-5 minutes. Add the onion and garlic cook for 2-3 minutes.
Add the cabbage, carrots, chicken stock, tomato sauce, rice, bay leaf and brown sugar to the pot. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
