Introduction:  There are many recipes for different types of stuffed cabbage rolls. Every Eastern European country has its own version. They are an old time favorite that my family request quite often. They are an old fashion, comforting food that pairs cabbage with beef and rice. This is a recipe for a great easy main dish and can be served with any side dish of your choice. Not only easy to make, they are also inexpensive to make.

You Will Need For Cabbage Rolls:

6 large ( or ) 12 medium cabbage leaves

1 egg - beaten

1/2 cup milk

1/4 cup onion - finely chopped

1 teaspoon worcestershire sauce

3/4 teaspoon salt

dash of black pepper

1 pound ground beef

3/4 cup cooked rice

1 large cooking pot

1 large bowl

1 large baking dish


Instructions For Cabbage Rolls:

Step 1  Remove the center vein of cabbage leaves, keeping each leaf in one piece. Boil leaves in water about 3 minutes or until the leaves are limp. Drain leaves on a clean cloth or paper towels.

Step 2.  In a large bowl, combine first 6 ingredients. Mix well. Add ground beef and cooked rice. Mix well.

Step 3.  Pour enough water to cover the bottom of the baking dish. Place 1/2 cup of meat mixture on large leaves or 1/4 cup on medium leaves. Fold in all sides. Place each cabbage roll in the baking dish with folded sides down. 


You Will Need For Sauce:

1 can condensed tomato soup

1 tablespoon brown sugar

1 tablespoon lemon juice


Instructions For Sauce:

Step 1.  In a medium bowl, mix all of the ingredients together. Pour over cabbage rolls. 

Step 2.  Bake  uncovered at 350 degrees for 1 1/4 hours. Baste once or twice with the sauce.


Tips:  Any ground meat will do. Mashed potatoes make a nice side dish and the sauce can be used as gravy.

Warning:  Be careful that the edges of cabbage rolls do not burn. Add more water to the baking dish if necessary.
