Ground Beef, Rice & Savoy Cabbage Roll Bowls

with Sour Cream & Dill Topping

Cooking time

25 minutes




760 /serving

The best of cabbage rolls all rolled into one—one bowl, that is! Everyone will get their fill of filling flavours with this low-fuss version: shredded leaves of crinkly Savoy cabbage are worked into a deeply savoury ground beef mix, amped up with custom spices, garlic, tomato paste and Worcestershire sauce. The rice that’s usually inside the rolls is repurposed as a base, while the typical accompaniments of fresh fronds of dill and dollops of sour cream keep those traditional tastes in play.

Cook the rice
In a medium pot, combine the rice, 2 ½ cups water and 1 tsp salt; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer, 17 to 20 min., until the rice is tender and the water has been absorbed. Remove from the heat and let sit, covered, for 5 minutes. Add 2 tbsp butter; fluff the cooked rice with a fork and set aside in a warm spot.

Mise en place
While the rice cooks, mince the garlic. Pick the dill fronds off the stems, discarding the stems; roughly chop the fronds.

Start the beef & vegetables
While the rice continues to cook, in a large, high-sided pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Add the ground beef*; season with ½ the spice blend and S&P. Cook, breaking up the meat with a spoon, 3 to 4 min., until beginning to brown. Add the mirepoix and cook, stirring occasionally, 4 to 6 min., until the vegetables have softened and the beef is cooked through.

Finish the beef & vegetables
To the pan of beef and vegetables, add the garlic and cook, stirring frequently, 30 sec. to 1 min., until fragrant. Add the tomato paste; season with the remaining spice blend. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 min., until dark red. Add the Worcestershire sauce, demi-glace and 2 cups water. Cook, scraping up any browned bits (or fond) from the bottom of the pan, 1 to 2 min., until combined. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to simmer. Add the cabbage and cook, covered, 8 to 10 min., until the cabbage has softened and the flavours have combined; season with S&P to taste.
