This is a wonderful, easy and delicious one skillet meal. I like to serve the cabbage and beef mixture over the rice, but you could also mix the rice in while simmering the dish, if you prefer.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large skillet, brown ground beef with the onions, peppers and garlic until beef is no longer pink and vegetables are tender; drain, if necessary.
  2. Add remaining ingredients, except for rice; stir well and bring to a boil.
  3. Reduce heat and simmer covered for 20 to 30 minutes, until cabbage is tender.
  4. Serve over prepared rice.

Easy, peasy! I made this exactly as posted, except I ended up stirring in the brown rice to the completed recipe to make a truly one-dish meal! Tastes just like stuffed cabbage without all the work! I might reduce the sugar next time to make it a bit more savory, rather than sweet, but it was delicious just the way it was! Thanks for sharing!

This is an easy, flavorful meal to prepare on busy weeknights. I did use 1 red bell pepper in place of the green pepper. I also used a bag of coleslaw mix that I already had on hand. I added 1 cup of uncooked rice to the meat & cabbage mixture with an extra cup of water and let it simmer until the rice was cooked making this a one skillet meal. I might try reducing the brown sugar next time to make it a tad less sweet. We enjoyed this a lot and it was super easy to prepare. Thanks for posting. Made for PRMR.

As the recipe says Simply Delicious! Instead of tomato paste and stewed tomatoes I used Mushroom-Beef Spaghetti Sauce that I had made for a different tag as I had some sauce left over. I also didn't add as much hamburger as called for as the spaghetti sauce already had beef in it. I served it over white rice. I also used a pkg. of coleslaw instead of the head of cabbage.
