Easy Sweet and Sour Beef and Cabbage

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 20 mins

I found this on one of those recipe cards at the grocery store. It's a little different than most of the cabbage casserole recipes I've seen posted, so I thought I'd share it. *Note: Be sure to core the cabbage well or it will be tough.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large skillet cook ground beef, onion, celery, and green pepper till meat is browned; drain off fat.
  2. Sprinkle meat mixture with rolled oats, parsley, the 3/4 teaspoon salt, garlic powder, and the 1/8 teaspoon pepper.

  5. In bowl combine tomato sauce, vinegar, brown sugar, the 1/2 teaspoon salt, and the dash of pepper; mix well.
  6. Pour over cabbage and meat.
  7. Cover and simmer for 20 to 30 minutes or till cabbage is tender.

Easy and simple and the overall flavor of this recipe was good, but my family did not enjoy the cabbage. I followed the steps accordingly, except I chose a Napa cabbage. We like the texture better. I believe it would be more tasty if the cabbage were to be incorporated into the meat mixture. Sorry I can't be more favorable. Made for Easy Does It! event. :)
