The Un-Cabbage Roll


FullSizeRenderCabbage rolls are a great Dash friendly meal, but I find them cumbersome to make. Instead, why not take all the regular ingredients and just put them together without stuffing the cabbage leaves? Yes, it’s not as pretty, but it’s just as tasty! I promise!


1 to 1 1/2 lbs. ground meat (you can use whatever you like)

2 sausages, cut up

Olive oil

I onion, chopped fine

1 garlic clove, minced

1 head of cabbage, shredded

2 cans diced tomatoes

1 cup tomato sauce

Salt & pepper to taste

Chicken broth, as needed


Saute onion and garlic in some olive oil under tender and starting to brown. Add the ground meat and sausage and cook until meat is no longer pink.

Add the shredded cabbage, tomatoes, tomato sauce, salt and pepper. Cover and simmer for 20 to 30 minutes until cabbage is tender. If it dries out, add some chicken broth and continue cooking until the cabbage is done.
