Polish Beef and Cabbage Casserole | Lazy Golumpki | Deconstructed Golumpki

Our family enjoys Polish Golumpki which takes time to prepare. Here's a simple casserole recipe I used for Stuffed Cabbage and meat filling which is basically the same as the stuffed cabbage leaf recipe.

I made it for my daughter and her family and brought it over when she had her third child.  It freezes well.  You can either cook the meat filling ahead and prepare, or just mix it and use as a freezer meal.

Sometimes you just have to have Golumpki but don't have the time to pull the cabbage leaves apart and roll them.  So this is a good recipe to make if you want to bring a casserole dish to a party, buffet, or a friend.
