A creative way to have cabbage rolls and only have one pot to clean!
I was all over this week's Sunday Supper Movement event theme: Easy Skillet Recipes for Back to School (hosted by: Liz of That Skinny Chick Can Bake). I'm a mom of three - two are school-aged. One pot meals are my jam right now and they are perfect for my ever-busy Mondays.
I first had cabbage rolls when I met my stepfather's mom when I was in the fourth grade. My Gramma made the best cabbage rolls and I so wish that I had her recipe and her talent for rolling them. She passed away years ago from cancer and I miss her so very much. It is nice to have something that even comes close to her cabbage rolls that I can manage to make. This dish is as good as it will get for me to reminisce the time that I had with her.
The original recipe did not turn out for me (which is likely because of human error), so I ended up modifying the recipe and it turned out perfectly for me. I cannot get over how easy and delicious this recipe is. And the whole family loved it which is a huge plus for me because over the years I've eased cabbage into our meals little by little. It is one of my absolute favorites and I ate it a lot as a kid, but Nick was never a fan. Since I don't make it often, my older kids aren't accustomed to eating it. It's a winning recipe all around because of all of this. It tastes close to my Gramma's "pigs in a blanket" (what she called them), my family is learning to love cabbage like I do, and it's a one pot meal.
What you need:
- 1 lb. ground beef or turkey
- 1 large yellow onion, diced
- 2 Tbsp. minced garlic
- 1 can Italian-seasoned diced tomatoes
- 2 cups chicken broth
- 1 cup water
- 1 small cabbage, chopped
- Italian seasoning to taste
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1 cup instant brown rice
- In a deep skillet, brown beef/turkey. Add onion, garlic, tomatoes, chicken broth, water, and Italian seasoning. Season with salt and pepper.
- When onion is softened, add chopped cabbage. Cover and cook for 15 minutes.
- Add rice to skillet and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 5 to 10 minutes covered. Then remove from heat and let rest for 5 to 10 minutes. Serve immediately.
