All of the flavors of a traditional Russian cabbage roll emerge in this slow cooker casserole. The only difference? No finicky rolling in this recipe! Instead, the shredded cabbage combines with the beef and slightly sweet tomato sauce. After a long simmer in the slow cooker, the mixture transforms into a hearty, warming casserole the whole family will love.
Because many Russian cabbage rolls feature a combination of both beef and rice in the filling, it's no surprise that this dish is delicious ladled over steamed white or brown rice. If you prefer, serve it with other grains, from bulgur to quinoa to kasha. Let your creativity be your guide.
