Recipe Box – Pot Luck Lazy Cabbage Rolls

Carrie and I LOVE Lazy Cabbage Rolls. I’ll make this recipe, and that’s what we’ll eat for the week – seriously. It stores really well in the fridge, and it’s even good cold, if the ground beef used is very lean, or it’s pre-cooked and drained before adding to the casserole.
