Kathie's notes for this recipe:
I started making a version of this casserole years ago because I love cabbage rolls and they take so long to prepare. I've adjusted the recipe many times but this is my current version.

I have also noted lots of other recipes like this in the past couple of years so I guess it wasn't that big a leap from cabbage rolls to cabbage unrolls. :)

Directions

1
In a large skillet stir and brown beef, pork, garlic, and onion until meat is crumbled and no longer pink. Drain grease. Stir in diced tomatoes and seasonings. Bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer to blend flavors and reduce juice a bit for about 10-12 minutes.

Stir in rice and bacon and heat thoroughly. Remove from heat.
2
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Layer 1/3 of cole slaw mix in bottom of a 9 by 13 inch baking pan. Put 1/2 of meat mixture on top of that layer. Next add another 1/3 of cole slaw mix. Now add remaining meat mixture and then top that with remaining cole slaw mix. Pour tomato sauce over top of casserole. Cover and bake for 50 minutes.
3
Uncover casserole and sprinkle cheese on top. Return to oven for 10-12 minutes to melt cheese. Allow to sit for 10 minutes before serving.

I have made this before and love it...If I am pressed for time, I have made this in my crockpot. I did not cook the meat or cooked the rice. I just put it together and put my crockpot on low and let it cook for 10hrs...........same tasty results!
