Since I blanched and froze quite a bit chopped cabbage (I had trouble with the heads splitting this summer), I decided to make some Lazy Man Cabbage Rolls. You can make this recipe in your crockpot but I left mine in the trailer with Barry so I made them in the oven. I had never used frozen cabbage for this and was interested to see how they would turn out.
I brought the cabbage out several days early and thawed it in a container in the fridge. You need to drain the cabbage before you can use it.
I mix together about 1 - 1 1/2 pounds of hamburger and 1 - 1 1/2 cups rice. I add salt and pepper to this. You could also add chopped onion if you wish.
I then mix in a quart sealer of canned tomatoes. I break the tomatoes up so the chunks are small.
Put half the cabbage in the bottom of a roaster or casserole dish. I almost always use a roaster so I have less chance of my casseroles boiling over.
Place hamburger - rice mixture onto cabbage.
Sprinkle on the rest of the cabbage.
Mix a can of tomato soup with 3/4 can of water and pour it on top.
Cook at 350°F for about 1 hour. You can eat it as is or you can serve it with some sour cream.
I was very pleased with the taste and texture of the cabbage. I would be hard pressed to tell the difference in taste between fresh and frozen.
