I bumped a thread about this to the top for you. What I do is grease a roaster, put chopped cabbage on the bottom, put over this about 1/2c. long grain rice, sprinkle with salt and pepper. Lay a layer of lean raw ground beef on this and season again. Then I open a can of tomato soup, add a bit of dry mustard, vinegar, brown sugar and 3/4 can of water and pour this over and bake for an hour. Sauerkraut over the rice layer is good too, you cannot mess this up.

Hi, I just joined Taste of Home after standing for 2 hours in the kitchen stuffing cabbage leafs.
I remember my late father-in-law telling me he made what he called Lazy Man's Stuffed Cabbage. It's good to see it here with a few extra ingredients. I'll be a Lazy Woman next time I made this, and will try out your recipe. Thank You.
My ND cousin sent this recipe to me many years ago. It is a favorite. I like it especially because it freezes well, and it can be served on rice, pierogi, or noodles...you decide.
1+ pound ground chuck (I have used ground turkey.)
6 hot sausage, casings removed (I have used hot turkey sausage.)
1 large chopped onion (I have used a medium onion and a bell pepper.)
8 cups chopped cabbage
1/2 cup water
1 (28 oz.) can crushed tomatoes (I have used a 14 oz can of regular and a 14 oz can of zesty.)
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoon caraway seed (I use ground caraway from Penzeys.)
1 teaspoon granulated garlic (Penzeys minced)
Brown the meat, remove to bowl and drain most of the fat. Add cabbage, onion, and water. Cover and cook until cabbage starts to wilt. Add tomatoes, brown sugar, vinegar, salt, caraway, and garlic. Bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer until desired doneness. (We like the cabbage to be firm.) Mix in meat. Reheat. Serve with rice, cheese pierogi (raviolis work) [I brown them first.], or noodles.
Fabulous choices ~
My goodness Susan, What a great stash !
Ann, love the caraway in there.
Never thought of mixing cabbage & Kraut! Interesting
