Roll it Up

Step out of your routine and enjoy something unique and delicious with these Stuffed Cabbage Rolls. Made with Success® White Rice, ground beef, eggs and onion, all brilliantly wrapped in fresh cabbage leaves and topped with tangy tomato sauce, this is one satisfying dish. Impress guests at your next dinner gathering, or treat your family to something new that they will love and will request for dinner time and time again.

While this delicious dish may take a bit of time to bake to perfection, it’s certainly worth the wait and the preparation before baking is incredibly simple! Start by cooking the rice and setting that aside. Follow that by trimming, then softening the cabbage leaves by boiling them in salted water for a few minutes so that they will easily wrap around the stuffing. Prepare the stuffing by combining onions, garlic, ground meat, cooked rice, eggs, salt and pepper. Once well-mixed, place mounds of the stuffing in the softened cabbage leaves, roll and place seam-side down in a buttered baking dish. While the oven preheats, combine tomato sauce, tomatoes, lemon juice, salt and pepper in a saucepan and boil. When mixed and heated properly, pour the tasty sauce over the rolls and let your oven do the rest of the work! You and your family will love these savory little rolls from the very first bite!

  • Give your family something new and fun for dinner with these savory and saucy Stuffed Cabbage Rolls.

  • Step 1

  • Preheat oven to 375ºF. Coat a shallow, 3-quart baking dish with nonstick spray or softened butter. Set aside.

    Step 2

  • Prepare rice according to package directions.

    Step 3

  • Meanwhile, remove 12 large outer leaves from the cabbage. Trim off the thick part at the base of each leaf. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add leaves and 1 teaspoon of salt to boiling water. Cook leaves, a few at a time, for 2-3 minutes, until bright green and pliable. Reserve.

    Step 4

  • Combine rice, 1 teaspoon salt, ground beef, onions, eggs, garlic and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a large bowl. Mix well.

    Step 5

  • Lay cabbage leaves on a work surface. Place a mound of meat mixture (about 1/2 cup) in the hollow of each cabbage leaf.

    Step 6

  • Fold the sides of each leaf over the stuffing, then roll up from the thick end of the leaf to make a tight, neat roll. Arrange cabbage rolls, seam-side down, in a single layer in prepared baking dish.

    Step 7

  • Combine chopped tomatoes, tomato sauce, lemon juice, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Pour sauce over cabbage rolls. Sprinkle with sugar, if using.

    Step 8

  • Cover baking dish and bake rolls for 50 minutes. Uncover and cook for an additional 10 minutes. To serve, transfer rolls to a warm serving platter and cover with sauce.
