Stuffed Cabbages Rolls


For the Cabbage Rolls:

1 large head of cabbage

1 lb ground beef

1 cup cooked rice

1 small onion, finely chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 egg

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 teaspoon paprika

1/4 teaspoon dried thyme

1/4 teaspoon dried oregano

1/4 teaspoon dried basil

1/4 teaspoon dried parsley

1 can (14.5 oz) crushed tomatoes

For the Sauce:

1 can (14.5 oz) crushed tomatoes

1 cup beef broth

1 tablespoon brown sugar

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

Salt and pepper to taste



Preparing the Cabbage:

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Carefully remove the core from the cabbage and place the whole cabbage in the boiling water. Cook for about 5-7 minutes, or until the outer leaves are tender and can be easily peeled off. Remove the cabbage from the water and set aside to cool.

Once cooled, carefully peel off 12-14 large leaves from the cabbage. Trim the thick center vein from each leaf to make them easier to roll.

Making the Filling:

In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground beef, cooked rice, chopped onion, minced garlic, egg, salt, pepper, paprika, thyme, oregano, basil, and parsley. Mix until well combined.

Assembling the Cabbage Rolls:

Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).

Place a spoonful of the beef and rice mixture onto the center of each cabbage leaf. Roll up the leaf, tucking in the sides as you go, to form a tight roll. Repeat with the remaining cabbage leaves and filling.

Making the Sauce:

In a separate bowl, mix together the crushed tomatoes, beef broth, brown sugar, and Worcestershire sauce. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Baking the Cabbage Rolls:

Spread a thin layer of the sauce on the bottom of a large baking dish. Place the cabbage rolls seam side down in the dish.

Pour the remaining sauce over the cabbage rolls, ensuring they are fully covered.

Cover the baking dish with foil and bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour.

After 1 hour, remove the foil and continue baking for an additional 15-20 minutes, or until the cabbage rolls are cooked through and the sauce is bubbly.

Serve the stuffed cabbage rolls hot, garnished with additional chopped parsley if desired.

Enjoy your delicious stuffed cabbage rolls! They pair well with mashed potatoes or crusty bread.
