Stuffed Cabbage Stove Top Casserole Recipe

Same great taste without all the work! 

2 cups instant rice uncooked
 2 tablespoons olive oil
1 pound ground beef or ground turkey raw
3 cloves minced garlic
1 medium size head of cabbage chopped in small pieces 
TIP: freeze cabbage head first and it will wilt and cook faster after it's thawed
1 28 ounce can diced tomatoes
1 12 ounce can of tomato sauce
1 bay leaf
enough water to cover cabbage or chicken broth if using stove top or oven method ( you can also use 1/2 cup of white wine with the water). If using the slow cooker method then use 1  cup water 2 cups chicken broth equal of 3 cups liquid total. The stove top and oven will reduce the extra water the slow cooker won't.
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon each dried oregano, dried basil and dried parsley or fresh when you can get it
salt and pepper to taste


Add the cabbage, tomatoes, spices and herbs, rice, raw hamburger, or any other ingredients listed, cover with water. Bring to a boil, simmer until cabbage is tender around 35 to 40 minutes or more, add more water if gets too dry especially if using oven method.

Note: If using a slow cooker boil cabbage first till soft,  then add all raw ingredients to slow cooker 8 to 10 hours on low. 

Or another method is to make the cabbage with filling layered in a large aluminum foil throw away pan covered with foil and baked on 350 until cabbage is fork tender.

Sprinkle with romano cheese and serve.
