Lazy Man's Stuffed Cabbage

Rather than stuffed in the the cabbage, the meat is mixed and then tossed with the cabbage and other ingredients into one large pot and simmered until done.



  • 1 large head of cabbage
  • 1 1/2 lb. ground beef
  • 1 egg
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1 Tbsp. minced garlic
  • 1 diced green pepper (optional)
  • 1 (28 oz.) can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 (26.5 oz.) can Hunts tomato sauce
  • 2 Tbsp. Italian spice
  • 1 1/2 cups long grain rice
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • soy sauce (optional)


Shred cabbage and put into pot along with onion and green pepper (if using), herbs, and garlic

Mix ground meat with egg, rice, salt, and pepper as you would for meat balls or stuffing cabbage leaves and add to pot

Add meat to cabbage; pour in crushed tomatoes, tomato sauce, and water

Cover pot and simmer on medium for two hours, stirring often, or put into crock pot, set to low, and go about your day.

This can be served with noodles, mashed potatoes, or alone in a bowl like chili with a splash of soy sauce
