Unrolled Cabbage Rolls
When you want the flavor of cabbage rolls without all the work…unroll them! This recipe makes a comforting classic easy meal—and for just $4 per serving.
- 1 medium onion
- 8 oz. (250 g) mushrooms
- ½ head cabbage (about 12 oz./350 g), core and tough stems removed
- 1 lb. (450 g) ground pork
- 2 garlic cloves, pressed
- ¼ tsp (1 mL) salt
- ¼ tsp (1 mL) pepper
- 1 can (14.5 oz./398 g) diced tomatoes, undrained
- 1 can (8 oz./250 mL) tomato sauce
- ½ cup (125 mL) beef or vegetable broth
- 2 tbsp (30 mL) Worcestershire sauce
- Optional: Egg noodles or mashed potatoes
Use the Flex+ Food Processor fitted with the multiuse blade to finely chop the onion and mushrooms in batches; set aside. Slice the cabbage with the thick slicing blade; set aside.
Add the pork to the 5-qt. (4.7-L) Nonstick Saute Pan; cook over medium heat, breaking it up into chunks. After 3 minutes, add the onion and continue cooking until the meat is no longer pink, about 5–6 minutes.
- Add the mushrooms, garlic, salt, and pepper. Cook until the mushrooms cook down to half the original size and release their moisture, about 5 minutes.
- Add the cabbage, tomatoes, tomato sauce, broth, and Worcestershire sauce. Bring to a boil over medium heat, then reduce to medium-low and simmer uncovered until the cabbage is tender, about 10–12 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Serve as is, or over egg noodles or mashed potatoes, if you’d like.

Using mushrooms with the pork helps you stretch this meal and make it more satisfying. If you don’t like mushrooms, you can omit them and/or add an extra 4 oz. (125 g) of pork.
Combine your leftovers with a carton of chicken broth to make a comforting soup.
