Lazy Cabbage Casserole

Bookmark and Share
Raw Ground beefImage via WikipediaI learned how to cook from my Mom "long distance".  Both Mom and Dad worked.  When I got home from school, I would call Mom, and she would tell me what's for dinner and how to prepare it.
This is one of my "over the phone" recipes.  So easy even a 12 year old could make it, and it is really tasty.

Lazy Cabbage Casserole (Inside Out Cabbage Rolls)

1 pound ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped
1-can condensed Tomato Soup
1 soup can water
3 tablespoons uncooked regular rice (could use Minute Rice)
2 cups chopped cabbage
2-3 tablespoons brown sugar (taste the sauce, you may want to add alittle more brown sugar)
a squirt of lemon juice
a splash of white vinagar
Prehear oven to 350 degrees.  Generously butter a 9-inch x 13-inch baking dish (could use cooking spray).  Place chopped cabbage in the baking dish and set aside.
In a large skillet, lightly brown the ground beef and onion; drain well.  Add uncooked rice, and all remaining ingredients. Mix well and simmer for 10minutes.
Pour ground beef mixture over chopped cabbage.

Cover with allumium foil and bake 1-1/2 hours, or until cabbage and rice are tender.
Tastes like stuffed cabbage only without all the work.

  1. I call it Unstuffed Stuffed Cabbage and truthfully, I think it is just as good.

    Thanks for sharing your noodle kugel recipe with me. I make one too but not exactly in the same manner. I want to try yours.

  2. Good idea...I like the shortcut. Perfect for a quick weeknight meal!
