Same great taste minus all the hard work!
- 2 onions, sliced
- 1 head cabbage, sliced
- 2 lbs ground beef, for meatballs
- 1 can whole berry cranberry sauce
- 1 bottle chili sauce
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- In large pot, brown 2 onions in about a Tbspn of oil.
- At this point you can add the ground beef as is and brown, or you can make the ground beef into meat balls.
- Add the rest of the ingredients and simmer for 1 hour or place in oven-proof casserole and bake for 1 hour.
I'm not going to rate because it is just my personal taste that I did not love this. I should have realized that the cranberry sauce would make this a sweetish dish and I don't like the combination of meat and sweetness. It was very easy to make and turned out wonderfully - just too sweet for us.
I loved this! It was exactly what I was in the mood for when I saw this recipe, and about 100 times easier than my family praakes recipe. I halved the recipe and simmered it for 40 minutes, so the cabbage remained a tad crunchy. It was delicious & flavorful as is, but I added Hungarian hot paprika at the end because I wanted a little spice, and it was fantastic. I used 1 tspn olive oil for the onions, and 4% fat ground beef. Half the recipe measured exactly 4 cups, each cup = 294 calories, 4.75 grams fat, (1.5 sat). Can’t believe this a dish I can eat while losing weight! Thank you Caryn.
This was a great twist on "cabbage rolls." I loved the addition of the cranberry sauce, would never have thought of it! It reall worked though! I baked it for about an hour at 300 and just used the ground beef as it was, didn't make the meatballs, but I may try that next time. Thanks!
