Ingredients

  • one, medium cabbage, decored and cut into quarters
  • 1-2 pounds lean ground hamburger or ground chicken, I used one pound hambuger in mine.
  • 296 ML can stewed tomatoes with herbs
  • 680 ML can spaghetti sauce, only use half in mixture
  • one cup onions, chopped fine
  • one cup minute rice, is optional-you can use real rice just boil it to the directions on the package

Instructions

  1. First take the cabbage and cut it into quarters making sure to cut the core out. It is a bit tough to eat. Boil cabbage in pot on stove with water until it becomes soft. This can also be done in the microwave in a covered bowl with a bit of water.
  2. While this is cooking drain juice from the can of stewed tomatoes into a glass,yes drink it,don’t waste. It is very good mixed with Vodka. Also break down tomatoes in can with your fork.(If you bought a can of chopped stewed tomatoes omit this step.)
  3. Mix drained tomatoes,half can of spaghetti sauce,raw hamburger,cup of onions chopped as fine as you can,cup of rice together in a bowl with salt and pepper.
  4. Then when the cabbage is cooked. You grease 9x14 inch Pyrex Glass oven ware pan with olive oil. Then start to layer ingredients in bottom of pan starting with cabbage covering entire bottom. Spead the meat mixture on top of cabbage. The meat mixture should cover the entire cabbage layer alternating them and try to have the last layer being meat/sauce.
  5. Bake in the oven ,on middle rack at 305 degrees for one hour.

Tips

No Pyrex?: If you don't own a Pyrex cooking glass pan, this recipe works in a medium roasting pan just as well. For big parties, simply use a bigger roasting pan (don't cover in oven), double the ingredients, and cook for two hours.

Save Time: To save more of your time, cook cabbage ahead of time and freeze it in zip-lock bag. Then the cabbage is ready to go anytime you want to make this dish. So easy to make: mix ingredients together spread in layers with cabbage. Bake for one hour. Done.

With a Salad: For those of you that would enjoy a fresh salad with this meal, Marinated,Tomato, & Basil Salad is also made with just a few ingredients, It takes only minutes to make, and it is best made the day before to meld the flavors together overnight. Making this salad ahead, like the day before, saves time.

With a Soup: If you would rather have a hot bowl of soup to enhance this meal give Kale and leek Noodle Soup a try. This is an easy recipe you can throw together in a crock pot before you go to work, and it will be done when you get home. A hearty, healthy accompaniment to any meal or just by itself.

Enjoy, and share with your friends! You won't be disappointed.

      What an awesome compliment Kathryn and Andy. When I make this I also eat a lot of it. I am thrilled to hear you both enjoyed it so much and will try it again. Did you know eating cabbage can reduce your stomach fat? Thank you Kathryn also for sharing this recipes on so many sites. I am honored.

      Thank you xmags. You could call it cabbage lasagna and you can put what ever rice or ground meat that you like. This dish would be great with ground turkey, chicken, pork or beef. My favorite is lean ground beef with lean ground pork. Have a great weekend to you both.

      Update: I made this last night, with just a small change. I pre-cooked the meat. I don't cook raw meat with other food. It cuts down on the time in needs to be in the oven, too! Anyway, my boyfriend and I both LOVED this! We both had seconds (I barely ever have seconds, and Andy's first helping was quite big, as it was!), I had leftovers for lunch, and Andy had some for breakfast this morning! He doesn't usually eat "supper food" for breakfast, and many mornings he doesn't have time to eat first thing, so that's awesome!

      I shared this on HubPages, Google Plus (my circles, the public, and HubPages community on Google Plus), and Twitter.

      Thanks again, and I will be making this again! It really was a hit.

      I was just looking through your recipe index, and this one caught my eye. I'm buying cabbage the next time I order groceries (shortly), and I am planning which meals to make.... this is going to be one of them! Thanks for sharing this recipe with us, and I will be back next week, when I make it.
