This 5-ingredient casserole has all the flavor of cabbage rolls with less effort

Print this recipe
Stuffed cabbage rolls is a classic dish of Eastern European cuisine, but it can be tedious to prepare. By tossing braised cabbage with a richly flavored beef-and-tomato sauce, the recipe below features all of the great flavors of stuffed cabbage without all the work. Rice absorbs the tasty sauce as the casserole bakes for a complete meal in just one pan.
You'll need to start this casserole with cooked rice, so it's an awesome way to use up leftovers. You could also sub leftover cooked kasha or quinoa for the rice for even more protein and flavor. The tomato sauce you choose will lend lots of flavor, so consider using a brand with fire-roasted tomatoes or roasted garlic.
