I joined a food share and have been getting cabbage about once a month. I've never really been fond of cabbage but found this recipe to use it up. It is really good and freezes well.
Lazy Cabbage Rolls
1 3lb cabbage, chopped (about 12 cups)
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1 cup chopped onion
2 lb ground beef (or pork or turkey)
3 cups tomato sauce
1 cup long grained rice, uncooked
3 1/2 cups beef broth (or chicken broth if using pork or turkey)
1 tsp salt and pepper, to taste
In a large saucepan, heat oil over medium heat and cook onion until softened. Add meat and cook, stirring with a fork to break it up, until meat is no longer pink. Remove any excess fat, if necessary. Add tomato sauce, chopped cabbage, rice, broth, salt and pepper to taste. Stirring to mix well, bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer; cover and cook, stirring occasionally, 25 minutes or until rice and cabbage are tender. Uncover and cook 5 minutes or until excess liquid has evaporated. Stir well, cover and let stand for 5 minutes before serving. Makes 10 to 12 servings.
I add extra tomato sauce and I used brown rice the second time I made it, leaving the cabbage out until the rice had cooked for about 10 minutes, then adding the cabbage. I also got more like 15 servings out of it.
A friend of mine is going to try it with meat substitute and veggie broth, since she and her husband are vegetarians.
