Ground Beef Cabbage Casserole

An easier-to-make version of the conventional stuffed cab-bage roll. It tastes just as good, and, for some reason, youngsters seem to like it better.


1 medium onion, chopped
6 tablespoons butter or margarine, divided
1 pound ground chuck
1 cup cooked rice
1 small cabbage
2 tablespoons flour
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons catsup
1 cup canned tomatoes
1 cup water
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper


Saute the onion in 2 tablespoons butter or margarine until soft. Add the beef and rice and cook briskly for about 3 minutes, stirring. Turn into a shallow casserole, about 2-½-quart size. Shred cabbage finely and arrange over the meat mixture.

Melt the remaining 4 tablespoons butter or margarine and blend in the flour. Cook until bubbly, then remove from the heat and stir in the garlic, catsup, tomatoes, water, parsley, salt and pepper. Simmer, stirring, about 5 minutes. Pour over cabbage. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
