These cabbage rolls are loaded with ground beef and rice filling, wrapped up in a boiled cabbage leaf, and then baked in the oven with flavor packed tomato sauce.
Ground beef mixture
1 pound ground beef
1 cup white rice
1/2 sweet onion
1 clove garlic
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
3 teaspoons parsley
15 ounce can tomato sauce
15 ounce can crushed tomatoes
1 teaspoon sugar
1 sweet onion (diced)
Cut and remove about one inch from the bottom of the head of cabbage.
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Once boiling, place the entire head of cabbage into the pot of boiling water for four to five minutes or until leaves are tender.
Remove the cabbage from the water and peel back the leaves. Be careful; it will be hot.
Once you have your filling ingredients mixed together, place one cabbage leaf on a cutting board. Stuff leaf with mixture and roll tight.
Place cabbage rolls into tomato sauce and bake for 60 to 75 minutes at 350 degrees.
