Cabbage Roll Casserole Recipe

I have been making this recipe for about a year now, and it turns out so good every time I make it. My daughter who is 4, loves it as well. We have no problems finishing the yummy leftovers. You could also substitute ground turkey or chicken for the beef and make it leaner. This is sure to become a family favorite!

You need:
1 pound ground beef
1 medium onion,diced
4 cloves garlic,minced
1 tsp dried basil
1- 14.5 oz can beef broth
1- 15 oz can tomato sauce
1- 11.5 oz can tomato juice
1 medium sized cabbage, chopped
1 1/2 c. instant brown rice
 salt and pepper

In a large saucepan cook ground beef, onion, garlic, basil, salt and pepper until beef is cooked through. Add broth, tomato sauce and tomato juice and remove from heat. Meanwhile chop cabbage. In a 9x13 pan add cabbage and rice. Pour ground beef mixture over rice and cabbage, stir to combine. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 1 hour, stirring a couple times throughout baking.

    1. I hope you like it! It's so quick and tasty! Thanks for stopping by!!

  4. do u need to cook the rice first? Or do u put in in the casserolle dish uncooked?

  5. How much salt & pepper do you use?

    1. Hi, Karen! I never measure salt and pepper because everyone's tastes are so much different. I would season with the ground beef when frying, add the remaining ingredients and try it again. Add more if needed. I'm a huge pepper lover, so I usually add alot :) Thanks for stopping by!

  6. If I use ground turkey or chicken instead of beef, would I used chicken stock instead of beef broth?

    1. Yes, chicken broth would be a great substitution for beef when using ground turkey or chicken! Sounds yummy!


  7. do you need to cover the dish when its baking

    1. No, you can bake uncovered. Thanks for stopping by!
