Cabbage Roll Casserole

My kids are very finicky when it comes to cabbage (one of my favorites) so I only do half the head. I would love more in it, so use the whole thing if you want to. I miss my grandma's cabbage rolls. But that's a lot of work steaming each leaf and then filling and placing in another pan so I turned it into this.

Cabbage rolls are delicious but making them can be a bit tedious. Michelle took her grandmother's cabbage roll recipe and turned it into a casserole. It tastes just like cabbage rolls, but without the work. Yay! We loved the flavor Rotel adds to the meat during the cooking process. That, along with the fresh vegetables, adds a ton of flavor to this meal. You will need to watch this while cooking, but this is a fabulous one-dish recipe. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Cabbage Roll Casserole

Step-by-Step

  1. Prep: Shred cabbage. Chop onions and bell pepper. Cook rice.
  2. In a large Dutch oven, add ground beef, onion, bell pepper and Rotel (cooks into meat for extraordinary flavor, didn't believe it till I did it).
  3. Cook until meat is done.
  4. Then add cabbage and tomato sauces. Allow to cook until cabbage is done almost clear.
  5. If it needs water, add it so it stays juicy for rice. One 8 oz can of water is usually enough.
  6. Add rice one cup at a time until you feel it's enough. Salt and pepper to taste.
  7. Mix well. It is so tasty!
