Stuffed Cabbage Rolls



1 large head of cabbage

1 pound ground beef (or ground pork, turkey, or a combination)

1 cup cooked rice


1 medium onion, finely chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 egg

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper


1 teaspoon paprika

1/2 teaspoon dried thyme

1/4 teaspoon dried dill

1 can (15 ounces) tomato sauce

1 can (14.5 ounces) diced tomatoes


1 tablespoon olive oil

1/2 cup water or beef broth

Stuffed Cabbage Rolls



Prepare the Cabbage: Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Carefully remove the core of the cabbage.

Place the whole cabbage in the boiling water for about 5 minutes, or until the outer leaves are tender

and pliable. Remove the cabbage from the pot and let it cool. Gently separate the leaves, being

careful not to tear them. Set aside about 12 large leaves for rolling.

Prepare the Filling: In a large bowl, combine the ground meat, cooked rice, chopped onion, minced

garlic, egg, salt, black pepper, paprika, thyme, and dill. Mix until all the ingredients are well



Assemble the Rolls: Lay a cabbage leaf flat and place about 2-3 tablespoons of the filling in the

center. Fold the sides of the leaf over the filling, then roll from the bottom up to enclose the filling

completely. Repeat with the remaining leaves and filling.

Prepare the Sauce: In a medium bowl, combine the tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, olive oil, and

water or beef broth. Mix well.

Cook the Rolls: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Spread a thin layer of the tomato sauce mixture

on the bottom of a large baking dish or Dutch oven. Arrange the stuffed cabbage rolls seam-side

down in the dish. Pour the remaining sauce over the rolls, ensuring they are well covered.

Bake: Cover the dish with aluminum foil and bake in the preheated oven for 1 1/2 to 2 hours, or until

the cabbage is tender and the filling is cooked through.

Serve: Let the rolls rest for a few minutes before serving. Serve hot, spooning some of the tomato

sauce over each roll.



Congratulations on making stuffed cabbage rolls! This delicious and comforting dish is sure to be a

hit with your family and friends. The combination of tender cabbage leaves and savory filling,

smothered in a rich tomato sauce, makes for a hearty and satisfying meal. Enjoy your stuffed cabbage

rolls with a side of mashed potatoes or crusty bread for a complete dinner
