This is adapted from a Family Circle recipe. If you like Stuffed Cabbage Rolls, you'll LOVE this. I have made this low-sodium, but you can make alterations to add that salty flavor.

How to Make Unstuffed Cabbage

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large stock pot, brown ground beef (and Italian sausage, if using it) until no longer pink. Drain fat. Stir in onion and cook for 4 mins. Add garlic and cook for 1 min.
  2. Add diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, and tomato paste. Add water and all seasonings. Simmer for 5 mins. Add cabbage and simmer, covered, for 90 mins., stirring occasionally.
  3. Some people prefer to add rice as is true to Stuffed Cabbage Rolls. Some serve over mashed potatoes. I prefer to eat mine as a soup or stew.
