I modified my mom's classic Polish dish to fit my hectic life. Instead of boiling the cabbage and then filling it with beef, I just toss the ingredients in the slow cooker. It's much easier and tastes just as delicious. —Mary Walker, Clermont, Florida

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 cup uncooked converted rice
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 medium head cabbage, chopped


  1. In a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; crumble beef; drain. Stir in the rice, salt and pepper. In a large bowl, combine the spaghetti sauce, soup, water and sugar.
  2. In a 5-qt. slow cooker, layer a third of the sauce, half of the beef mixture and a third of the cabbage. Repeat layers; top with remaining sauce and cabbage.
