A Recipe from Georgia

It’s that Comfort Food Time of Year

Georgia took time out to share a recipe with us.  Knowing that this time of year is all about comfort food; Georgia has given us Unstuffed Cabbage Rolls.  Not only is this comfort food, but it’s inexpensive and easy to make

Unstuffed Cabbage Rolls are the simple and fuss-free version of the classic Cabbage Roll recipe. There’s all that taste but less work involved in wrapping everything into rolls. Instead, it is perfect when time is short and creates a delicious dish packed with goodness and flavour.

Unstuffed Cabbage Rolls

You will Need:

  • 2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 1 medium white onion, diced
  • 1 small head cabbage, chopped (core removed)
  • 28 ounce can of diced tomatoes
  • 398 ml can of tomato sauce
  • ¼ cup white vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 cup beef broth, low sodium
  • 5 tablespoons paprika
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • 1 cup Minute Rice, uncooked


Tomatoes: If you want to make the sauce a bit thicker, replace the tomato sauce with a can of tomato soup. Or you could use diced tomatoes in place of the can if you have them around.


STEP ONE: In a large frying pan, thoroughly cook ground beef and drain excess fat. Once cooked, place in a large saucepan.

STEP TWO: In the same, now empty, frying pan, brown the onions. Add cooked onions to the ground beef. 

STEP THREE: Add the rest of the ingredients to the large pan except the rice. Stir well to mix, then put it on the stovetop, bringing to a boil over high heat. 

STEP FOUR: Reduce heat to low and cover, then simmer for 20 minutes. 

STEP FIVE: Add uncooked rice, then cook with the lid still on for an additional 10 minutes.

STEP SIX: Serve hot. 


IN THE FRIDGE: You can store any leftovers of the unstuffed cabbage roll casserole in the fridge for 4 to 5 days. Make sure you let it cool completely before popping it into an airtight container to store.

IN THE FREEZER: To freeze, take the cooked casserole and pop it in an airtight container once cooled. You can freeze it for up to three months. Defrost overnight then bake in the oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until hot.

This unwrapped cabbage rolls recipe is a quick and simple version of the classic dish with no rolling or wrapping required. It still has all the original recipe’s flavour but with much less work involved.
