- DIRECTIONS:

  • Step 1:In plastic wrap or moist paper towels, wrap the cabbage leaves and microwave on High for around 2 minutes, until tender. To make leaves pliable and quick to fold, cut off the thickest, the white part of the spine of each leaf.  

  • Step 2:In a large bowl, combine the ground beef, rice, water, bread crumbs, grated carrot, chopped onion garlic, white egg, salt, and pepper, then mix well. 

  • Step 3:Spoon about 1/4 cup of beef mixture onto each leaf's middle. 

To cover the filling, fold the bottom of the leaf, tuck in the sides and then begin to roll to make loose rolls, it is necessary not to roll them too tightly. 

  • Step 4:Heat oil over medium-high heat in a large stockpot; add rolls and saut√© on all sides until golden brown, turning regularly, for about 5 minutes. 

  • Step 5:Add the can of tomatoes and get them to a boil. Reduce heat to a minimum, cover and cook until cooked through, check the pot every 15 minutes, and stir approximately 1 hour to avoid sticking. 

You need to add more water if the sauce thickens.

These stuffed cabbage rolls might be a little more work than your regular meal, but the extra effort is definitely worth it! ENJOY IT!!!
