The EASIEST Lazy Cabbage Rolls recipe because everything goes into the oven raw! All the good flavors minus all the labor of rolling! 

This is my mother-in-laws lazy cabbage rolls recipe. It’s the easiest lazy version that I’ve come to love. There is no need to pre-cook the rice or sauté anything! Everything is literally combined and baked to tenderness, super EASY!

Now don’t get me wrong I love my easy cabbage rolls recipe too but it’s not as easy as this unrolled version. If you’re looking for an easier alternative to prepping and want to satisfy that stuffed cabbage craving, then definitely give these a try!

Ingredients for the Lazy Cabbage Rolls:

  • 2 lbs of cabbage, chopped
  • 2 lbs ground meat (I used a mixture of ground pork and chicken)
  • 1 cup uncooked white rice
  • 2 carrots, julienned
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 12 oz (1 1/2 cups) of any tomato sauce (jarred or canned) + diluted with 2 cups of water
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tbsp garlic salt

How to make the Lazy Cabbage Rolls step-by-step:

1. Place the cabbage, ground meat, raw rice, carrots, and onion into a large disposable baking pan.

2. Add the diluted tomato sauce, olive oil, and spices. Mix everything thoroughly.

3. Bake covered in a 400 degree F oven for 30 minutes then reduce temperature to 350 degrees F and continue to bake for two more hours.

Wow it’s that easy??? Perfect!

What if I cut the recipe in half? Will it still make a good amount?

You could but keep in mind that the cabbage does cook down once stewed so it may not appear as full after baking.

Alyona, Thank you for sharing your awesome recipes. I”ve made several and they all turned out very delicious. My family doesn’t like cabbage rolls, but likes the lazy cabbage rolls. Yes, I know, go figure. I like your spin on this recipe, bake instead of frying. I will be trying this soon. Thank you!
