Based on a 2,000 calorie diet


  1. Place a large skillet over medium heat; cook the ground beef, onion, celery, and green bell pepper in the hot skillet until the beef is completely browned, 7 to 10 minutes. Sprinkle the oats, 3/4 teaspoon salt, the garlic powder, and 1/8 teaspoon black pepper into the beef mixture. Arrange the cabbage wedges atop the beef mixture.
  2. Stir the tomato sauce, cider vinegar, and brown sugar together in a bowl; season with salt and pepper. Pour over the cabbage and beef mixture. Place a cover on the skillet and simmer until the cabbage is tender, 15 to 20 minutes.

We made this recipe the other night and it was great! This recipe reminds me of stuffed cabbage....unstuffed. I would recommend doubling the sauce though.


This was really good, a make-again. I used 1 lb ground beef, 1 whole onion, whole pepper, and 2 stalks celery. I drained the meat because, yuck. I added 1 TBSP jarred minced garlic and 1 TSP smoked paprika, because that's authentic to Czech versions of cabbage rolls, and I wanted a similar flavor profile. I would make 2 additional changes next time: I would slice the cabbage into long strands, because wedges took too long to cook (more than 15-20), and I'll add crushed red pepper because we love it. I served this over my own recipe for lemon-butter brown rice (198 calories per serving). With my changes, this recipe yielded 6 generous servings at 231 calories per serving, which was deliciously filling! Thank you for submitting it!


We loved this. I only used a pinch of salt and reduced the beef to 1 pound, but otherwise made as written. Makes great leftovers, too.
