Unstuffed Cabbage Roll

Rated as 4.54 out of 5 Stars
23

"This is a quick and easy main dish. My kids don't even like cabbage, but they love this. I usually try to serve it with green beans, new potatoes, corn, and a pan of corn bread. They eat over half the pan every time. Also, the longer it stands the better it tastes."

  1. Heat a Dutch oven or large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir beef and onion in the hot Dutch oven until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes; drain and discard grease. Add cabbage, tomatoes, tomato sauce, water, garlic, salt, and pepper and bring to a boil. Cover Dutch oven, reduce heat, and simmer until cabbage is tender, about 30 minutes.

For more flavor, I replace the plain tomato sauce with Campbell's Tomato Soup.

I saw this recipe on Facebook and now I see it here. I tried it today and added 3/4 cups brown rice and 1 1/2 cups more water. I used spicy diced tomatoes. I cooked it on top of the stove for ab...

I've been making this recipe for over 40+ years and there are so many variations. I've never had an actually recipe. I just throw ingredients in the pot. I've made it with ground turkey or chic...

Unstuffed cabbage roll, genius. I tried this recipe, and it essentially mimics any cabbage roll filling. Don't put Campbell's soup in this. Instead, take a can of tomato paste and add water t...
