Here is a fast version of a classic: Stuffed Cabbage. This recipe is hassle free and I would say, very healthy. My children even ate it and they hate cabbage. This is barely a recipes, you can fudge on it if you want, or even add chicken instead, if that would float your boat. I bet you could make it in a crockpot. So have a great weekend and do yourself a favor and make this Super Simple Simon Supper.
Layered Stuffed Cabbage Bake
10 oz. bag shredded cabbage, like for coleslaw
1 pound lean ground beef, raw
3/4 cup jasmine rice, uncooked
2 T. dried minced onion
seasoning of choice- I used smoked paprika, garlic salt, and black pepper
28 oz. jar favorite pasta sauce- I used Trader Joe’s Arrabbiata Sauce- spicy!
1/2 cup water
Extra sauce and Parmesan cheese when serving- optional
In a greased 9×13 inch baking dish layer 1/2 bag cabbage, rice, ground beef broken in bits, then generously season with your favorite seasonings being sure to get at least 1/2 tsp salt in there- in my case the garlic salt. Top with remaining cabbage and pour sauce and water evenly over all. Cover and seal then bake at 350 degrees for 90 minutes. Serve with extra sauce and Parmesan cheese. Serves 6-8.
Note- I enjoyed the texture of the cabbage in this dish. Although it did cook through, it kept its texture- I did not want soggy cabbage- which was perfect with the tender, flavorful rice.
