Default Lazy Cabbage Roll Casserole P1, 2 or 3

I got this recipe from another forum I used to participate in. If it's already been posted please accept my apologies. I made this and brought it into work, and my coworkers ate it up! LOVED it and couldn't believe it was a diet meal!

Note: be sure to get 95% Lean Ground Chuck!

Lazy Cabbage Roll Casserole PI, II or III

2 Generous Servings See notes.

A: 1 lb ground meat
B: 1 chopped onion
1 chopped green pepper
1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp. thyme
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. salt
C: 11 – 19 oz. can of tomatoes, crushed
D: 3 c. coarsely shredded cabbage (I slice it crosswise in scant
1 inch slices)
E: 6 Tbsp. uncooked brown rice (Phase II or III only)
F: Grated parmesan cheese (optional)

In frypan, brown meat, stir to break up, add B, cook till golden. drain well, stir in C & E (if using) and heat till bubbling.

Scatter D loosely in slow cooker, pour meat mixture over top.

Cook on low 8-9 hours, or high 5-6 hours.

Top with F just before serving if desired

Ruth's Notes: I made this with lean ground chicken and it was great! It made four good sized servings. Here's the nutrition for 4 servings:
With lean ground chicken or lean ground beef, numbers averaged
Calories 330
Fat 10
Carbs 27 - that's with rice
Fiber 5 " " "
Protein 27

I know it would'nt be totally defcon 1 compliant but could you use prepacked coleslaw?

KO, I don't know if coleslaw is SB friendly. I believe it has sugar added.

Note: I just made this again. It seems different than I remember. But as I was eating it a few things came to my mind and I thought I'd share.

Next time I'm gonna add mushrooms and kidney beans if I want it p1. If I'm allowing for grains, I'll add the rice next time around. I added more spices as well. It was good! And yes, I had it on a bed of cabbage to add more veggies into my meal.

You shouldn't use the coleslaw mix, because it has carrots. But you can use either shredded red cabbage (which comes in a bag like the coleslaw mix) or angel hair coleslaw (it's just cabbage in a bag, but it's shredded finely, so it might not work as well in this).

Ruth, the two servings is what they had posted, I agree it makes much more than this amount! actually I more than doubled the recipe and froze some! Delicious!

True but dividing into four servings works well and cuts the calorie count almost in half. I sure can't afford over 600 calories in one dish! I may make it with TVP one of these days and see how that works. (I actually have one of my servings thawing for dinner tonight!)

This is really good! It reminds me alot of the food served in Eastern Europe...I added a little Hungarian Paprika to mine and baked it in the oven as opposed to the crock pot. It took about 40 minutes and came out DEELISH!!!

THANKS!

I made this tonight, and I used my pressure cooker (so, it only took about 30 minutes, start to finish). Very tasty, and it made quite a bit. I used lentils in place of the rice since I'm in phase one. I will definitely make this again!

Did you have to cook the lentils a little beforehand or were they okay being in the crockpot all day??? I love lentils but have never cooked them myself and I'm worried about them not being cooked enough.

Love lazy cabbage rolls! I make a variation of the above recipe...

I use:
1 lb ground turkey
1 can Unico lentils
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can crushed tomatoes
Minced garlic, dehydrated onions, Worcestershire, thyme, salt & pepper, chili flakes
1 bag coleslaw mix (the ones at my grocery store tend to be very light on the carrots, really easy to pick out)

I brown the ground turkey with the garlic, salt & pepper, then add the rest of the spices, the lentils, the diced tomatoes, and half the can of crushed tomatoes. Then let it all simmer together for 5-10 minutes.

Meanwhile, spray a 9x13" pan with Pam, and spread the coleslaw out in it.
Pour the turkey/lentil/tomato mix over top of the cabbage. Don't stir.
Spread the rest of the crushed tomatoes over top of the mixture.
Cover with foil.
Bake @ 325 for 1.5 hours.

Yep! The first time I made it, I just added dried lentils & extra liquid to the turkey/tomato mixture and let it simmer until the lentils were done. Then poured it over the cabbage as above.

I just had to come back and tell the person who gave us this recipe that it turned out just fabulous! I have to admit,I was abit worried..but I followed the directions almost perfect..other than I had to boil my own lentils,don't know where you get canned ones;and it was just delicious. However it made enough for a army,(not four servings as mentioned),and since my DH is a fussy eater,the whole pan is mine. Don't mind tho since it turned out so well. I did freez half,and do hope that works. Thanks again..It was great to have a tasy,HEALTHY,dish that DIDN'T have cheese in it. I think on the sb there is a tendency to over do the cheeze.

Glad you liked it! I should have probably indicated that my version makes about 9 servings (@ 207 Calories per serving). I find canned lentils in the same section as canned beans and chickpeas, but making them from dried is certainly a healthier -- it just takes away from the lazy aspect of the dish
