Almost Cabbage Roll Casserole

I have posted this in the past, but thought I would post it again as that was some time ago Smiley Happy

 

Almost Cabbage Roll Casserole

1 lb. lean ground meat
3/4 cup uncooked long grain rice
1 large chopped onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
28oz. can tomato sauce (unsalted) or 3- 8oz. cans + 1/2 can water
1/4 cup cider vinegar
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tsp. dry mustard
8 cups coarsely chopped cabbage (about 1 medium head)

In large bowl, mix beef, rice, onion, garlic, salt & pepper

 

In another bowl, stir together tomato sauce, vinegar, brown sugar and
mustard.


Layer 1/3 of the cabbage in bottom of 3qt. casserole

.
Arrange 1/2 of the meat mixture on top.

 

Cover with 1/3 of the cabbage.

 

Top with remaining beef mixture & remaining cabbage.


Pour tomato sauce mixture over top, but do not stir.


Casserole will be full. Cover. Place on cookie sheets to catch any spills.


Bake 325 for 2 hrs. without stirring. Do not uncover so the steam
will cook the rice & meat.


Turn off heat and let sit in over for 15-30 min or until all liquid
is absorbed.

Re: Almost Cabbage Roll Casserole

Looks similar to the recipe my mom used, she got it from a Polish immigrant many many years ago

 

But I have a question.   She would par cook the beef to remove some grease.   How do you avoid a greasy soupy mess?

 

There's a video on Youtube of Martha Stewart making stuffed cabbage with her mom.

Re: Almost Cabbage Roll Casserole

 Thank you for posting the recipe. I am so tempted to try this recipe. About twice a year we go to the Polish Festival to buy stuffed cabbage. And the lines are always crazy.

 

Might be worth trying the casserole recipe. Or maybe instead of chopping up the cabbage, I could try and roll the ingredients into the cabbage leaves. Only way to find out is to try.
