Lazy Cabbage Rolls Recipe (One-Pan Meal)

lazy-cabbie-rolls-recipe-one-pan

These “Lazy Cabbage Rolls” are probably the EASIEST alternative to stuffed cabbage rolls that Ukrainians or Russians can make. It’s all done in ONE pan, no pre-cooking or sautéing what so ever. Super easy and delicious tasting cabbage rolls minus all the extra labor and rolling! 

This recipe is from my mother-in-law (you can find her version here.)  There is no need to pre-cook the rice or saute anything in this dish everything is literally combined and baked to tenderness, easy right?

Now don’t get me wrong the rolling version is delicious but can be very time consuming. If you’re looking for an easier alternative to prepping and want to satisfy that stuffed cabbage craving then definitely give these a try!
