Unstuffed Cabbage Rolls

Oh my word. This was so easy and SO good (and also pretty healthy! Win + win + win.)

  • 1 to 1 ½ lbs ground beef
  • 1 onion, diced (about 1/3 cup)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced (1/2 tsp)
  • 1 ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper (or 2 tsp seasoning blend instead of salt + pepper)
  • 1 bag pre-shredded cole slaw mix (14 oz or so)
  • 1 large can (28 oz) crushed tomatoes (or 1 can each diced tomatoes and tomato sauce, 15 oz or so)
  • 1 cup uncooked rice

For stovetop/oven, brown ground beef, onions, and garlic with salt and pepper in a skillet with lid. Stir in cabbage and continue heating until wilted; stir in tomatoes/sauce, and rice. Heat until bubbling, then cover and place in 300 degree oven for 1 hour.

For slow cooker, brown ground beef and pour into slow cooker (including grease). Add all other ingredients, stir and heat on high for 3-4 hours or on low for 6-8 hours.

Serve with crusty bread or rolls, if desired (to help mop up the “juice”!)

    Love the recipe, it’s so creative! I just about started thinking about the stuffed variation but the lack of space in my tiny kitchen was holding me back. Now am going to put this recipe to good use. 🙂
