Give your family something new and fun for dinner with these savory and saucy stuffed cabbage rolls.
Preheat oven to 375ºF. Prepare rice according to package directions.
Remove 12 large outer leaves from cabbage. Trim thick part of each leaf. Add leaves and 1 teaspoon salt to boiling water. Allow to stand 5 minutes; so leaves become pliable. Drain.
Combine onions, garlic, ground meat, cooked rice, eggs, pepper, and 1 teaspoon salt. Place mound of meat mixture (about ½ cup) in hollow of each leaf.
Fold the sides of leaf over stuffing; roll up from the thick end of leaf to make a neat roll. Arrange cabbage rolls, seam side down; in a single layer in lightly buttered, shallow 3-quart baking pan.
Combine tomato sauce, tomatoes, lemon juice, 1 teaspoon salt, and pepper in saucepan. Bring to a boil. Pour over cabbage rolls. Sprinkle with sugar, if desired. Cover; bake for 50 minutes. Uncover and cook for 10 minutes longer. Remove to warm serving platter; spoon sauce over all.

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 these delicious morsels may take a bit of time to bake to perfection, they are 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 in saltwater for a few minutes so they will easily wrap around the stuffing. Prepare the stuffing by combining the 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 saucepan and boil. When mixed and heated properly, pour the tasty sauce over the rolls and let your oven do the rest! You and your family will love these savory little rolls from the first bite!
