"Yummy and less work than the real cabbage rolls. There is no rice in this recipe, because I don't like rice in my cabbage rolls."
Serving Size: 1 (405 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 6
"I liked this recipe with a few alterations. I added an extra 8 oz marinara sauce and 1/2 tsp italian seasoning to this. Also, 2 hours before it was done cooking I added 1/2 cup brown basmati rice. Very good, and very easy!!"
"Quick, easy recipe with great results. I have always loved stuffed cabbage but it's time consuming to prepare. This recipe tastes exactly like the original!! It's low in calories and has nutritional value! Thank you so much for this."
"Great casserole and takes little time to put together. I used ground round, garlic powder, added two cans of diced tomatoes and tomato sauce. I did add a layer of rice over the ground round because I use it when making stuffed cabbage. The only problem I had was I used a 6 quart crock pot and I didnt catch it before the sauce cooked out. It finished cooking on low in about 5 hours. The casserole was a thick stew type meal. Next time I make this I will use my smaller crock pot or keep a closer eye on the 6 quart. Thank you for posting this recipe Parsley! Made and reviewed for the TOTM Forums tag game It's Not Easy Being Green."
"I need more stars!! This is the best kind of recipe. Standard ingredients, easy and quick to prepare and all in the crock pot! I too added approx. 1 cup raw rice and that helped to thicken the juices nicely. The flavors were bright and perfect. I will make this again and again. Thanks for posting this keeper!!"
"Very good and easy to make. I followed the recipe exactly as written except I used Splenda instead of sugar as that is all I buy. Mine only took about four hours on low. Everyone enjoyed it."
"I prepared this recipe exactly as written and it was a wonderful dinner. I did serve it with white rice. It's a keeper!"
"Outstanding. I love everything about this casserole. I used lean ground beef and I the extra 8 ounce can of tomato sauce. I also added in some more sugar, actually brown sugar, cause we like it a little sweet. I did serve it over brown rice because we do love it. I did stir it all up about halfway through the cooking stage. I broke up the ground beef slightly, but I liked that there were some small chunks because you get a big taste of ground beef in the usual cabbage roll recipe. Thanks so much for a winner that is going into my tried and true recipe book."
"This is a great, healthy recipe! It was easy, too. We used the Italian diced tomatoes. I also added a little parmesan cheese on top of mine. The only thing that I will change next time is to maybe mix the ground beef throughout or something. It got kind of squished like a strange patty in the bottom of the crock pot, but it still tasted good. I just had to break it up as I was mixing it. Thanks for the recipe!"
"What a terrfic dinner! I have made this a couple of times and forgot to rate it before sorry. To feel that a recipe is healthy, it has to have the majority, if not all, of it's calories and fat from food that is beneficial. So many cabbage recipes have too much added sugar, white rice, etc, so I am a big fan of this one! I do use the sugar in it, since it's such a small amount and it really does make the difference in whether it tastes "tinny". I use 1 lb Laura's 4% fat ground beef and I serve brown rice to the less calorie restricted as well as putting some shredded cheddar that they can add if they choose. Thanks for the recipe...it will be used frequently!"
"Wow! So delicious! I followed the recipe precisely and used the extra tomato sauce as suggested and I sprinkled a little Parmesan/Romano cheese over the top before serving. An absolute keeper!!"
"Made this tonight. Very tasty. I used lean ground buffalo and added cooked jasmine rice at the end of the cooking time Delicious, easy meal! Will make again!"
"This still is not done, but could not wait. Really enjoying this. I added more salt and pepper when it was closer to being done, and then gave the whole thing a stir. One reviewer suggested adding some rice, and I will do that the next time. I used the extra tomato sauce, and I think the rice would have been a nice addition. Quite a nice recipe."
"Very good! Changes I made are to add a can of tomatoe soup when I put in the tomatoes and tomatoe sauce and sprinkled italian seasoning over ground turkey. After it was done cooking, I added 3/4 cup of instant brown rice. I will be making this again!"
"Well tried this recipe, not very good, will go back to my original way of making in oven, this recipe was bland, tasteless, all you can taste was boring tomato sauce, the cabbage would not cook, I did add 1/2cup if rice which is not much to the amount of recipe, with being done in slow cooker it was mussy"
"Wonderful tasting meal! I've never had a cabbage roll but I needed to use up cabbage and ground beef and it was too hot for the oven so I went perusing and found this great dish! Followed exactly except used red bell peppers instead of green. Will make this one again!"
"Delicious and nutritious. We serve it over brown rice. Reminds me of the cabbage rolls my grandma used to make, which I dearly loved, but without all the hassle! We call them "inside out" cabbage rolls!"
"This is very good and easy. I cooked it just as written except I used my tomatoes from the garden instead of a can of diced. I served it over rice and it was just like stuffed cabbage rolls...Delicious! Thanks for the time saving recipe."
"My family enjoyed this Casserole. I added Soy Sauce to mine...Gave it a richer flavor, but it is good either way."
"This is a wonderful recipe! I made it with 2 cans of diced tomatoes but other than that, left it the same. It's not often that you can make a healthy crock pot meal with such great flavor. Healthy meets comfort in this recipe! Thanks for sharing."
