Thread: Unstuffed Cabbage - 4 Points per Serving

  1. #1

    Default

    I found this one in our local newspaper and had to try it. It was super. Even fussy DH liked it. I substituted ground turkey for the beef but calculated the points based on beef.

    1 pound lean ground beef
    1 c chopped onion
    1/2 c uncooked (not instant) rice
    1 medium head cabbage (about 8 cups), chopped
    1 (20-28oz) can crushed tomatoes
    1 T brown sugar
    1 T white vinegar
    1/2 tsp. salt

    Brown beef and onions and drain. Add cabbage. Cover and cook until wilted. Add remaining ingredients, bring to a boil. Cover and simmer 20-30 minutes. Or turn into a casserole dish and bake at 350 approx. 1 hour.

    By my calculations, this came up to be 4 points per 1 cup serving.

    Made this for dinner this evening. Very good! Reminded me of the stuffed cabbage rolls I usually make. One thing that I put in mine however is some raisins. Next time I make this recipe..... much simpler without all that rolling up.... I'll add about a 1/4-1/2 cup raisins. This won't make that much difference in the points for the whole dish. Thanks for sharing the recipe. I wouldn't have thought to make cabbage "rolls" this way. :rolleyes:

    My mom used to make this when I was a kid. It is very tasty. All she used was browned ground hamburger, 1 head of cabbage, small onion, 1 can of tomatos and a can of V8 juice, salt & pepper. Cook until wilted.

    I think I'll make this tonight.

    You know, there was a thread on here somewhere with this recipe that had been changed by Charski using TVP and now I can't find it anywhere! Anyway, I tried her version of this recipe using the TVP and it was great! Just wanted to let her know.

    I have a question about the recipe. It said to add regular rice and bring to a boil. Where does the liquid come from. Does it come from the cabbage? Please clarify before I try out the recipe. TIA. Karyn [img]graemlins/wave.gif[/img] [img]graemlins/wave.gif[/img]

    Hi, I made this for dinner tonight & I am waiting for Dh to come home now so we can eat. I had a small taste, and WOW! This is delicious!!

    The liquid comes from the can of tomatoes.

    BTW, with this made 8 cups, and with my morningstar veggie crumbles it comes to just 4=P for 2 cups. Pretty darn good, I think.

    Hurry up, DH, I'm starving.....

    Well, Dawna's account got ME hungry...!! LOL! Luckily, I had everything here, so I assembled it in no-time!!

    I used one 15 oz. can of tomato sauce and one of diced tomatoes. I didn't add the Morningstar Griller Crumbles until the v-e-r-y end (didn't want them to plump up too much [img]tongue.gif[/img] )...

    This dinner was EASY and DELICIOUS!! Can't wait to have left-overs tomorrow!! Carol

    I started this one cooking in my wok (SUPER large wok-- gotta love it!) and then, because I had to leave for work (night-shift..UGH) transferred it to my crockpot to finish cooking. Set it on low heat...and it turned out wonderful!

    I made it tonight and I had a few medium rice pieces. Has anyone made it with instant rice instead? I also made diet cola brownies. Ummmmmm Karyn [img]graemlins/wave.gif[/img] [img]tongue.gif[/img] [img]graemlins/wave.gif[/img]

    TracyD [img]graemlins/wave.gif[/img] I have a question re this recipe in the crockpot. I realize this is an old thread, but I thought I'd try anyway. I tried this recipe in the crockpot last Wed., and it cooked on low for about 6 hrs. My family didn't like the smell, and it turned out mushy. Still, I remember my mom cooking this on the stove, and I'm willing to give it another try. How long did you cook it in the crockpot? Was it mushy, and did the cabbage smell, well, you know...cabbagey??? {Anyone who knows the answer to this can jump in with a reply.}

    This is an excellent dish. I put Sour cream in it for the last 10 minutes of cooking time.

    Alexandria I cook mine in my Extra Large size electric frying pan. My small ones are too small. I think it would be better cooked this way than in a crock, it doesn't get mushy on me.

    A great recipe for "freezing" AND you don't have to take the time to stuff-the-cabbage~

    Instant rice gets too mushy. I use brown rice and bake. My family loves it.

    WOW! Was this delicious!! I used whole tomatoes instead of crushed, and added a little extra water. DH loved it. He told me it's a keeper! Enough for two dinners for us and an extra lunch!
    Thanks for the great recipe!

    This was fantastic! I put a little FF sour cream in my servings.

    I did use long grain rice and it didn't cook! So, it was a bit crunchy. D'oh, next time I'll use another type of rice.

    My DH LOVES "stuffed cabbage" - so i will have to give this easier method a try ! (i think he uses "tomatoe soup" though ?) anyway ... will it fit in a large frying pan ?? so, after i brown the meat & drain , then i add the dry rice & cabbge ?
    Do u like it better on the stove OR baked ?any opinions ??
