Easy Ground Beef Cabbage Roll Casserole Recipe Is How to Start the Week

Who invented the cabbage roll is up for debate. The Greeks, Albanians, Bulgarians, Croats and Turks all believe they should get the credit for the rolling of cabbage. We'll let them work that out among themselves while we eat them. 

This tasty cabbage roll recipe is made with budget-friendly ground beef and is quick and easy to make. Serve with a salad.

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 1 1/2 hours
Total Time: 1 hour and 45 minutes
Servings: 6


Here's how to make it:

  1. Cook the head of cabbage in boiling water until the leaves start to release. Carefully remove from the water and carefully pull off 12 leaves. Set aside. Shred the remaining cabbage and put into a baking dish. 
  2. Combine the ground beef, 1/2 cup tomato sauce, onion, uncooked rice, parsley flakes, dill and cayenne. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Mix well. 
  3. To make rolling the rolls easier, cut out the large vein from the cabbage leaves. Put about 1/4 cup of the ground beef mixture onto the leaves. Fold in the sides and then roll up. Place the cabbage rolls on top of the sliced up cabbage in the baking pan.
  4. In a small bowl, mix together the diced tomatoes and remaining tomato sauce. Pour over the cabbage rolls. Bake in a preheated 350-degree F oven for about 1 1/2 hours.

OK, now I have a tear or two in my eyes because this made me think of my grandmother. She was from Croatia and always made these cabbage rolls for holiday get-togethers. (So my vote is for the Croats coming up with the recipe, LOL!) Thank you for sharing this easy version. I am going to make it for my parents. They will love it! Donna John

My grandma made them, too, and would probably argue that the Pollacks invented them. :) If I remember right, I think she used canned tomato soup.

You can also use half beef, half ground pork.
