You’ll never miss the extra carbs in this easy and satisfying one-pot dinner… it’s cabbage rolls without all the work!


  • 2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 1 large yellow onion, chopped (about 3 cups chopped)
  • 1 tablespoon freshly minced garlic
  • 1 (28-ounce) can diced tomatoes
  • 1 (10-3/4-ounce) can condensed tomato soup
  • 1/4 cup beef broth
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 head cabbage (21/2 pounds), cored and chopped into about 2-inch pieces
  • Fresh chopped parsley, for garnish (if desired)


  1. Cook beef and onion in a dutch oven or soup pot over medium high heat, crumbling beef as it cooks until beef is browned and no longer pink (about 7-8 minutes).  Drain off grease.
  2. Add garlic and cook an additional minute, stirring frequently.  Add diced tomatoes with juices, tomato soup, beef broth, Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper and bay leaf.  Stir to combine.
  3. Add chopped cabbage and stir to combine.  Bring to a boil.  Reduce heat to maintain a simmer.
  4. Cover and simmer for 25-30 minutes (stirring occasionally), or until cabbage is tender.  Remove and discard bay leaf.
  5. Sprinkle with fresh chopped parsley, if desired.
