Simple Cabbage Casserole and A Birthday

by zesty on March 14, 2011 · 12 comments

Happy Monday and sorry for the lack of existence on Friday as I ran into some more technical difficulties both at the hotel and the airport. This weekend was FUN to say the least. Zesty Junior had his 6th birthday party and invited his whole class to our house for some excitement. It was a great turnout and the kids had a blast.

With the weekend behind us, this week is action packed as well as I am trying to wrap up some lingering consulting jobs, get a start on some new ones, prepare the office for my vacation the following week and last but not least figure out the theme parks and passes for Disney World.

For the food today, take a step back in time and think of simple comforting ingredients that are easily accessible in your super market and inexpensive. Enter, a simple cabbage casserole that makes me very happy. I was first introduced to this casserole at my mother in laws and quickly fell in love with the texture and flavors.

is all EASY and very quick to prepare. It does take a little time to cook but you can whip it together quickly and is great for a side dish or even as a main course. This casserole is excellent for potlucks, excellent for reheating and can certainly be frozen.


  • 1 Lb. Lean ground beef
  • 1 Tsp. Olive oil
  • 1 Onion ( chopped )
  • 2 Cups Mushrooms ( chopped ) Optional
  • 1 Tsp. Salt
  • 1/8 Tsp. Pepper
  • 1/2 Cup minute rice
  • 1 10oz. Can tomato soup
  • 1 Soup can of water
  • 3 Cups coarsely chopped cabbage


  1. In a large frying pan, stir and break up the ground beef in oil for 1-2 minutes
  2. Add onion, salt, pepper, mushrooms and rice
  3. Mix well and continue sweating for 2-3 minutes. Add soup and water stir well.
  4. Turn cabbage onto a greased baking dish.
  5. Pour meat mixture over raw cabbage and bake covered at 325 degrees F for 1 1/2 hours.
  6. ENJOY!

Zesty Tip: Easily double up the batch by doubling the ingredients and store in Tupperware containers and freeze for up to a couple of months.

Happy Birthday to Zesty Jr!

Hee hee – happy b-day Zesty Jr!

Happy birthday to the little Zesty. Looks like a great day. Did you guys make the cake?

As for the casserole, what perfect timing! I have half a napa and half a red cabbage in the fridge. I have a feeling both halves are itching to be used in a version of your recipe. Delish!


7 Danica

Yeah!!! That cabbage in your fridge means you made my CEiMB recipe with me this week Joanne. That salad was AMAZING ~ I need to stop by your site to see how yours turned out.



8 Denise

This looks simple and tastey.

In my home, we call that “Lazy Man’s Cabbage Rolls” lol. Weirdly enough, my hubs prefers the real things over this version, but I always have leftovers of both filling and cabbage so this is what I make with them. Maybe, if my version looked even half as good as your pictures of food do then he would enjoy it more.
I “stumbled” across your site about a month ago and even though I have yet to make any of your fab recipes, it was your pics of the food that made me bookmark your site and has me keep coming back. Thank you!
BTW…I used those candles for my son to…the difference being that he was turning 20! lol

Will certainly try this recipe. Sounds delicious! I have been lo oking for a recipe for years (lost during one of our moves). Was named Meat-C abbage c casserole but had no tomato product in it. Ground beef was mixed with milk, I remember. This would be a recipe from the 1960′s. Please notify if u have anything like nthis. Many thanks. MemereJoan

This is not a comment but a question. Years ago at a friends house for dinner his mother cooked a meal of Egg Noodles, shredded cabbage, polish sausage. There was also Fennel seeds in it, I am sure there was other things like butter, and spices, but I do not have the recipe and sadly that dear lady is passed away now. Can you possible help me to figure out what might have been in this recipe.. it was so good. I know she baked it in the oven before serving it, as she brought it right out of the oven to the table.
I hope you have some suggestions as to how I could recreate this recipe.

Thank you
Joan Abbott
