My mom used to make these stuffed cabbages a lot but I never knew the recipe. Until last week, a friend of mine brought these to work and I asked her for the recipe. Check it out!
2 heads of cabbage.
2 lbs of ground beef.
3 cups of cooked rice.
1 tsp of garlic.
1 tbsp of parsley.
2 slices of diced onion.
1 (15oz) can of crushed tomatoes.
¼ cup of tomato sauce.
Salt and pepper.
Preheat the oven to 375°.
In a pot of boiling water, put a head of cabbage and peel off the leaves one at a time.
Using a sharp knife, cut off the rough part on the end of the cabbage.
In a bowl, mix together the ground beef, rice, egg, garlic, parsley, onion, ¼ cup of tomato sauce, salt and pepper until well combined then place a small amount of the mixture on a cabbage leaf and roll up like a fajita.
Place the stuffed cabbages in a casserole dish the seam side down and pour the crushed tomatoes over the top.
Bake covered for 75 minutes then turn down the heat to 325° and bake for an additional 90 minutes.
Simple, easy and delicious! These stuffed cabbages are so yummy, they make the perfect side dish! I usually use more sauce in the bottom of the casserole with two cabbage leaves to avoid burning.
