Easy Cabbage Rolls

Cabbage rolls are a hearty dish made by filling cabbage leaves with a mixture of ground meat, rice, onions, and spices, then rolling them up and cooking them in a tomato-based sauce.


▢1 head green cabbage
▢1 cup uncooked rice
▢1 pound ground pork (or ground turkey)
▢½ pound ground beef
▢2 small onions diced
▢3 cloves garlic minced
▢½ teaspoon dill weed
▢3 tablespoons fresh parsley chopped
▢salt & pepper to taste
▢1 can diced tomatoes (14 ounces) with juices
▢1 egg
▢1 ½ cups + ⅓ cup tomato sauce divided
▢1 can tomato soup 10.5 ounces


• Boil cabbage leaves for about 2 minutes or until soft. (See note below for removing leaves). Set aside to cool.

• Preheat oven to 350°F.

• Cook rice according to package directions but reduce cooking time by 5 minutes so the rice is slightly underdone. Set aside.

• Cook pork (or turkey), beef, onions, garlic, & seasonings in a pan until no pink remains. Drain any fat. Add in rice, diced tomatoes, & ⅓ cup of tomato sauce. Stir in egg.

• Mix remaining tomato sauce and tomato soup in a bowl. Spread a very thin layer of the tomato sauce mixture in a 9×13 pan.

• Remove or thin any thick stem on cabbage leaves. Lay the cabbage leaf flat and add ¼ to ⅓ cup filling to the center of the leaf. Fold in the sides and roll the cabbage up. Place seam side down in the pan. (See note for small leaves). Repeat with remaining cabbage.

• Pour sauce over the cabbage and cover tightly with foil. Bake for 75-90 minutes. Let cool for 15 minutes before serving.
