Although the title is a little misleading...because I was waiting for the part where it bakes in the oven, this sounds delicious and almost like a deconstructed cabbage roll minus the cheese. I have a head of cabbage that's just begging to be cooked and I think this will be the perfect way to oblige. Just a thought...maybe to avoid confusion you may consider changing the title to one-pot cabbage meal or something similar.

I am so grateful that everyone in our family loves cabbage because I absolutely adore it. That may be because I do not cook it like my mother used to (boiled to death!) but that is another story! This is a really easy, filling meal for hungry family and it is quick enough to prepare to make it fine for a week night after work. We used lentils instead of ground beef (because we did not have any ground beef) and it was very good indeed!
