Cabbage Rolls


SAMSUNG

I had to call my mother before making this just to brush up on some steps I wasn’t sure of. The recipe is below if you’d like to try it. This is a great Sunday meal that’s filling and delicious! It’s also great to bring to a potluck.

What You Need

  • 1 cabbage
  • Tomato sauce (check out this post for my homemade recipe) or purchase a jar you like
  • Ground beef (one med to large pack)
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 3 gloves garlic, minced
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • ½ cup grated parmesan

Instructions

  • Heat oil in pan, add onions & garlic
  • Cook for about 5 minutes
  • Add ground beef
  • Mix in salt & pepper, oregano & pepper flakes
  • Brown & cook meat fully. Meanwhile…
  • Pull off a few outer leaves of cabbage and throw away
  • Carefully pull off cabbage leaves, you’ll need about 12
  • Wash leaves
  • Bring a pot of water to boil
  • Blanch leaves in batches for about 6 minutes each or until flexible, without breaking
  • Let air dry or pat with paper towel if in a rush
  • Lay out leaves and scoop about three tablespoons of ground beef on each
  • Top with a healthy pinch of mozzarella cheese
  • Begin rolling, tucking leaves inwards at the sides to hold meat in
  • Repeat for remaining rolls
  • Scoop some sauce onto bottom of oven-safe baking dish
  • Place rolls in dish
  • Cover each roll with sauce
  • Cover with aluminum foil
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour or until fork very easily pokes through cabbage roll
  • Top with grated parmesan before serving

Enjoy!!

    I think I need to make these this weekend for my dad. They are a favorite comfort food of mine.

    I love playing on different variations with this same premise as well.

      Oh goody! I hope you enjoy them! And of course, you can play around with the ingredients. The ground beef can be made spicier, sweeter, more cheese or veggies… Have fun!! And thanks for your comment 🙂
