Beef and Cabbage Casserole - 5 points

This recipe - slightly adapted from Fix it and Forget it for Entertaining - is not one that I thought I would be sharing on my blog. I made it for two reasons - I needed to use a head of cabbage and I wanted to use my crock pot. I didn't have high expectations. Well - slap my face and call me Sally - this stuff is delicious. It is so delicious that I just got off the treadmill because I decided it was worth jogging to get to have a second helping. That's right. This is so good I will jog for it. Nuff said.

Beef and Cabbage Casserole
1 medium onion, chopped
3 tbsp butter or margarine
1 lb ground beef
1/2 to 3/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 small head cabbage, shredded
1 can condensed tomato soup

1. Melt butter in a medium skillet over medium heat. Saute onion in butter.
2. Add ground beef to onions and cook, stirring frequently, until beef is browned. Season with salt and pepper.
3. Layer half of cabbage in slow cooker, followed by half of meat mixture. Repeat layers.
4. Pour soup over top of cabbage and beef. Cover and cook on low for 4 - 6 hours.
5. Yields 8, 5 point servings

It seems forever ago that I picked a random song for you on a Friday night. Since I have been sharing the soundtrack of my life with you this week, it may seem superfluous to  have my DJ pick a random song from my Zen for you tonight. Yet, I love the idea of just finding something at random - just getting a bit of unexpected, unpredictable musical inspiration. Tonight I got a great song for you. I love the artist Beck  - one of his songs was playing in the background the first time I danced with my husband. Here is "Bottle of Blues".


  1. I have really been liking cabbage lately so I can't wait to try this out!!

  2. I like casserole and your cabbage casserole with beef looks perfect for the rainy days over here.
    Have a sunny and bright weekend!

  3. Tiffanee - Summer cabbage is so good, isn't it? (Of course, I also like winter, spring and fall cabbage.)
    Angie - I hope you have some sunny weather as well, and not all drizzle:)

  4. I adore cabbage cooked in any way so this sounds perfect. Could you not have just eaten it on the treadmil and be done with it?

  5. I like such recipes - just a few ingredients, effortless and great outcome

  6. Simple, healthy and delicious and only 5 points! Now if I can stick to one serving! have a great weekend!

  7. Love this recipe and made it often when my boys were at home; we called it Lazy Cabbage rolls.

  8. funny just read this after you told me how much you like cabbage he looks great and easy to make

  9. Fantastic! And another use for tomato soup! :-)

  10. I'm weird enough to absolutely love cooked cabbage in most any way, shape or form. Plus you don't have to do MUCH jogging for it :)
