Stuffed Cabbage

This past Sunday, after seeing the gorgeous cabbage already at the market readying for St. Patrick's Day, I decided to make Stuffed Cabbage. This is a departure from this Irish girl's usual Italian sauce Sundays... And it was a yummy one!

  • 1 c cooked white rice
  • 8 cabbage leaves
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 small onion, chopped
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • s & p
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • fresh parsley
  • 1, 29 oz. can tomato sauce

Bring a large, wide saucepan of lightly salted water to a boil. Add cabbage leaves & cook for 2 to 4 minutes or until softened; drain.

In a medium mixing bowl, combine the ground beef, 1 c cooked rice, onion, egg, s & p, garlic powder & parsley, along with 1/2 c of tomato sauce. Mix thoroughly.

Divide the beef mixture evenly among the cabbage leaves. Tuck them under & secure them.

In a large skillet over medium heat, place the cabbage rolls, tuck down, & pour the remaining tomato sauce them. Add 1/2 c water. Cover & bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low & simmer for about 40 minutes, stirring and basting with the liquid often.


  1. Yum! Stuffed cabbage is one of my favorite meals. My mom makes it and does it in the crockpot.
