One Pan Meals



I love easy simple meals and we have more than "15 kinds of One Pan Meals" that you can try on the stovetop.


If you have an instant pot it takes around 35 minutes on the pressure cooker mode and so quick and easy! 


The kids love it, and it's all homemade with wholesome ingredients.


To save time, I like to chop up the cabbage and place it in a sealed bag, then I just have to dump it in when ready to make this.


It's not one of that fussy kind of meal but totally tastes like stuffed cabbage, this will be the dish for you to make! Sure it won't look as pretty but it sure tastes the same!



It's packed with all the same flavors, done in half the time, with all the taste.

We love the old fashioned style Stuffed Cabbage Rolls but this is great in a pinch and served up with some hot crusty buttered bread, it's perfect for a chilly day.


No matter which cooking method you try, it's a super easy way to get that old fashioned cabbage roll flavor all in one pan.
