Cabbage rolls are tasty and although I find a little difficult to roll neatly LOL I still like eating them.
Try this recipe and see how you like it. Full of vitamins see below. They really have good flavor.
What you need:
1 medium head cabbage (3 pounds)
1/2 pound uncooked ground beef
1/2 pound uncooked ground pork
1 can (15 ounces) tomato sauce, divided(part of this goes in sauce below)
1 small onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic minced
1/2 cup uncooked long grain rice
1 egg beaten
1/4 cup milk
1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes
1/2 teaspoon snipped fresh dill or dill weed
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper(optional)
sea salt and pepper to taste
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon worchestire sauce
Bring a large pot of water to boiling then Cook cabbage in boiling water just until outer leaves pull away easily from head. About 5 minutes in boiling water. Set aside 12 large leaves for rolls to cool in a strainer.
Cook the rice as directed, while it cooks cook the meat mixture below
In a large skillet, combine the beef, pork, 1/4 cup tomato sauce, onion, garlic, parsley, salt, pepper, dill and cayenne; paprika mix well.
Turn off heat and let this mixture cool down a bit.
In a small bowl mix remaining tomato sauce, can of tomatoes, brown sugar, worchestire sauce and lemon juice together till mixed.
Take the rice, mix with the egg and milk and add it to the meat mixture. Also add some chopped cabbage into the meat mixture.
Cut out the thick vein from the bottom of each leaf, making a V-shaped cut. Place about 1/4 cup meat mixture on a cabbage leaf; overlap cut ends of leaf. Fold in sides. Beginning from the cut end, roll up. Repeat.
If you still have remaining cabbage Slice the remaining cabbage; place in an Pam sprayed baking dish.. I also had extra meat after filling my cabbage rolls so I spread it on top of the remaining cabbage in the baking dish. Arrange the cabbage rolls seam side down over sliced cabbage.
Pour the tomato mixture over this to cover each roll.
Cover and bake at 350° for 1-1/2 hours or until cabbage rolls are tender.
