Recipe by OceanLuvinGranny
I did a search on here and couldn't find one like mine so I decided to submit it. I thought I had found int on here but I must have gotten it from another place. It is a wonderful dish and although a shortcut type recipe, it still give you the flavor and comfort of vabbage rolls without all the extra work. I did tweak it from the original recipe, however. The cooking time does not include the time to brown the ground beef.
