Cheesy Beef and Cabbage Skillet Casserole


This beefy, cheesy skillet meal is a little bit like lasagna and cabbage rolls got married.

While we love a meal that’s easy, it has to taste good too, and this one doesn’t disappoint.

The mild earthy flavor of cabbage goes so well with sweet tomato sauce and melty mozzarella.


1 pound ground beef

1 medium cabbage, cored and thinly sliced

1 can (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes

1 can (14.5 oz) crushed tomatoes

2 cups mozzarella cheese, grated

1 medium onion, diced

2 cloves garlic, minced

4 tablespoons olive oil

1 teaspoon dried oregano (or more, to taste)

Sea salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste


Preheat oven to 400°F.

Heat olive oil in a large oven-proof skillet over medium heat.

Add onions and cook until soft and translucent, 5-7 minutes.

Add garlic and cook one minute more.

Add ground beef and cook until no longer pink.

Add cabbage, crushed and diced tomatoes, oregano, and salt and pepper and saute until cabbage is wilted about 10 minutes.

Top with grated cheese and bake for 15 minutes.

And Enjoy...!
