All the flavors of cabbage rolls in an easy, light and delicious slow cooker cabbage casserole. It's a family favorite!
- 1 pound lean ground beef
- 1/2 cup chopped onion
- 5 cups coleslaw mix
- 1/2 cup uncooked, converted rice (I used Uncle Ben's)
- 1/4 cup water
- 2 teaspoons paprika
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 1 can (14 - 15 ounces) Italian-style tomato sauce
Ideal slow cooker size: 4-Quart
Grease the inside of the slow cooker.
In a large skillet, cook the beef and onion, stirring occasionally, until the beef is no longer pink. Drain off any grease.
Scrape the beef and onion mixture into the slow cooker.
Add the remaining ingredients and stir to combine. (The cooker will be full, but the cabbage will shrink a lot during cooking.)
Cover and cook on LOW for 4 to 6 hours, or until the cabbage is tender.
Next time I'll bulk up this easy cabbage roll casserole even more with another cup or two of cole slaw mix.
