This pleasing recipe was given to me many years ago by a very dear friend. I've made some changes in the ingredients, but the snappy Cajun flavor is still there.

I increased the beef to 1 1/2 Lb. Used a medium head of Cabbage.Used 1 Cup of Rice and added 1 link of fresh Andouille Sausage to the Beef.Did not use any Oil to fry. The G. Beef had enough fat for that. Since its supposed to be Cajun I added 1/4 Tsp. Cayenne to the Cajun seasoning I have.Perfect winter meal for a cold day. My little lady loved it. A keeper recipe! Thanks Boca Pat!

Enjoyed this dish. Increased the beef 1/4 lb & cut the cabbage 1 c & rice 1/4 c. Substituted some leftover sweet & sour sauce I had for the tomatoes/sauce so I didn't add the sugar. Right balance for us & next time I will probably abit abit of italian sausage. Tasty recipe, thanks for sharing.

Loved this casserole, made with a head of garden fresh cabbage. I pretty much doubled the amount of water called for, omitted the sugar, salt, pepper, and oil for frying, as the beef releases enough of its own juices for browning...and I added chopped parsley. Also threw in extra chili, onion,& garlic powders, and thyme, basil and cayenne, because I ran out of cajun seasoning. It delivered! Flavour with a good kick. Good recipe, good directions. Thanks!
