Cabbage Rolls Casserole

These are nothing but deconstructed cabbage rolls aka ‘’Lenivie Golubtsi’’ where everything is cooked in one pot and is healthier than the authentic version.

Prep your cabbage by cutting it into 2-3 inch cubes.

Heat up a large pot or dutch oven with oil  and saute onions. Add beef and cook until browned.

Add garlic, paprika, thyme, oregano, salt and pepper, bay leaves and stir.

Add crushed tomatoes, tomato sauce, water or broth, vinegar, W. sauce, maple syrup. Stir to combine and bring to a boil.

Stir in the cabbage, bring to a boil. Simmer with closed lid for 15-20 minutes.

Stir in the cooked brown fluffy rice , stir to combine and let heat through simmering for 3 minutes.

Remove from the heat. Discard the bay leaves. Serve with freshly chopped parsley and sour cream.
