I just saw this recipe on a forum, and it reminded me of one I already had. This one uses brown rice, which I think is a good itdea.
Lazy Cabbage Roll Casserole
1 green cabbage (about 1.5 lbs)
1 lb lean ground beef (I used sirloin)
1 cup long grain brown rice, uncooked
28 oz can tomato sauce, divided
1 tsp thyme
salt & pepper to taste
This will work in a 4-quart crock pot.
Cut the cabbage in half (then in quarters to cut the core out easily). Cut one half into roughly 1" pieces and break up the layers a bit as you place them in the bottom of the crock pot. If desired, salt the cabbage a bit and toss to mix.
In a mixing bowl, combine the rice, ground beef, about 1 cup of tomato sauce, thyme, salt & pepper. Press into a layer on top of the cabbage in the crock pot.
Cut the remaining half head of cabbage like the first half and salt (if desired), placing it on top of the meat/rice layer.
Top with remaining tomato sauce (try to cover all the cabbage a bit).
Cook on low 8-10 hours.
Makes 4 very generous servings.
