Stuffed Cabbage Rolls

These Stuffed Cabbage Rolls are such a simple, but warming dish.  It is a perfect winter time meal!  I believe stuffed cabbage rolls are generally an eastern European dish.   There are so many various recipes for stuffed cabbage rolls so I went for a really basic recipe.  I preferred to use fire roasted tomatoes instead of the typical tomato sauce.  Overall, they were a hit when I brought them over to my friend's house for dinner.  Enjoy!  

Stuffed Cabbage Rolls

1 cabbage, cored and leaves removed
1 pound ground beef
1 cup cooked rice
1 small onion, diced
1 egg
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
3 or 4 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon garlic, granulated
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
15 ounce can fire roasted tomatoes or tomato sauce
½ cup water


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Bring a large pot of water to boiling.  Boil cabbage leaves for 3 minutes and drain.

In a large bowl, combine ground beef, rice, onion, egg, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, salt, and pepper.

Place about ¼ cup of meat mixture into center of each cabbage leaf.  Roll up and tuck ends in.

Place rolls in a baking pan.

Pour tomatoes over cabbage rolls.

Cover with foil and bake for 1 hour and 30 minutes.
