This meal is fast and inexpensive, yet it's very filling. It combines ground beef with cabbage in a tomato base. I like to serve it with corn and bread.

This is really really good. I skip the water just spread the canned soup over the top. So inexpensive and simple to fix. So much flavor too. My mom use to make this when I was growing up. We called it cabbage casserole. I still make it. I bake mine in the oven. After browning the meat and cooking the onion mix in chopped cabbage dump into large casserole dish and cover with undiluted soup sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cover with aluminum foil. Bake at 350 for about 30 min. Yumm-O! Tastes like cabbage rolls without all the fuss. Great with a crusty french bread and green salad. Read More

I would agree that this is very fast easy and inexpensive. I would also agree with other reviewers that this recipe is rather bland. I added garlic when the beef was cooking and I added additional salt at the table to give it more flavor. I also thought it was too soupy. I would recommend less water. I doubt that I will make this again or if I do I would probably add rice to try to thicken it up a bit. Read More

Super, super simple! I used ground turkey instead of beef to make it lowfat, and pre-shredded cabbage to save even more time. Loved it! Thanks for the recipe! Read More

nice hearty meal for a very cold night. I made a few changes tho as others suggested. I added chili powder and garlic (will use something spicier next time tho) and instead of tomato soup I used stewed tomatoes and omitted the water. I simmered it uncovered for the 20 minutes to help evaporate some of the juices. I will make again....especially on these cold Canadian winter nights Read More

This dish was good especially considering how quick easy healthy and inexpensive it is. I'm embarrassed to say it but my husband and I finished the whole pot in one night - yikes! But it's so healthy. I did add some garlic while I browned the beef and then drained and rinsed the beef with hot tap water after it was done to get rid of the excess fat. (I do this all the time and you can't tell the difference). I added a few shakes of hot chili powder and also a few squirts of ketchup for some added flavor and a touch of "sweetness." I did not use what I felt was a whole medium sized head of cabbage. I used about one-half and thought it was plenty. Will definitely make again - probably at least once a week! For those that won't use tomato soup becuse they don't like it. Try it! My husband doesn't like it as soup either but likes it in recipes. Read More

Good and easy meal. Thanks to other reviewers I too added a couple dashes of chili powder apprx 1/2 TBLS brown sugar and a few squirts of ketchup which definately added taste that I think it would have otherwise lacked. I used apprx 1 cup leftover rice (stirred right into the cabbage mix) and also used the pre-shredded coleslaw cabbage which saves on chopping time. Overall tasty and easy meal which I will make again when all the time I have is 30 minutes!! Thanks Tina! Read More

All you "Weight Watchers" out there! This recipe's a real keeper. I used 1 1/2 # of 85% ground beef instead of 1# and 1 can of tomato soup. I used about 1/2 cup water and added garlic and onion powder. Lots of room to get creative with seasonings. The whole recipe was about 36 points delicious fast and easy. My husband loved it too.

This was weak on the flavor and too watery (i even used less than recommended). We ate it again the next day and it was surprisingly better like potato salad. Next time I'll make it a day ahead and try eating it on a roll like sloppy joes! Read More
