Doing WW so I made a few substitutions, barley for rice (precooked), ground turkey for ground beef and added red pepper flakes for some zip. Got it down to 4 points per serving! My husband liked it and he doesn't like cooked cabbage. I loved it! You just made it so easy. Thanks

Very good basics...needed more spice for my taste. Next time I will use real garlic, more salt & pepper and a teaspoon of sugar in the tomato mixture. Also...cabbage seems to get tougher later in the fall...Id try it again in the summer to see if the cabbage would be more tender. Thanks for the recipe!

After the one hour there was no liquid left. And I used a whole 28 ounces can of diced tomatoes. I didn't have tomato juice in my pantry so couldn't add that. I'm sure it would have help a lot. I liked that the meat was cooked in the oven. I'll have to try it again with more liquid cause the rice was a bit crispy. It's a bit dry. Thanks Cajunhippiegirl :) Made for TYM tag game
