Lazyman Cabbage Casserole

Feb 15, 2012

Every now and then we need some comfort food to warm us up, comfort us.. Yesterday was no exception for me. It was Valentine's day, the day of love, the day of being with the one you love, and there I was sitting at home alone...

Lazyman Cabbage Roll Casserole
makes a 9x13" pan

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 75 minutes

Ingredients
  • 2 t. canola oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, seeded and finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 lb. lean ground beef
  • 1 (14 ½ oz.) can diced tomatoes with mild green chiles
  • 1 (8-oz) can tomato sauce
  • ½ c. cooked white rice (I use brown rice)
  • ½ small head cabbage (about ¾ lb.), shredded
Instructions
Preheat oven to 350. Spray 9x13 in. baking dish with nonstick spray.
To make the filling, heat the oil in large nonstick skillet over med-high heat. Add the onion, bell pepper, and garlic; cook, stirring occasionally, about 8 minutes. Add the beef and cook, breaking it up with a wooden spoon, until the liquid evaporates and the beef begins to brown, about 6 min. Stir in the diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, and rice; bring to a boil. Remove from the heat.
Spoon half of the filling in an even layer on the bottom of the baking dish. Top with all of the cabbage, then top with the remaining filling. Cover with foil and bake until the filling is hot and bubbly and the cabbage is very tender, about 1 ¼ hrs.
