Good Sunday morning!!! We went to dinner last night at friends and I volunteered to bring dinner. I had a hankering to make cabbage rolls so thought I would take them. I wanted to share with you how I make my Cabbage rolls. I apologize though because I forgot to take pictures of the process!!!! I know, BAD blogger!!!! But I will try to take you through it. Here we go:
-2 pounds ground beef (I used meatloaf mix)
-2 stalk celery, chopped FINE
-2 small or 1 large onion chopped fine
-2 cups white rice, cooked
-salt pepper and garlic powder to taste
-1 large head of cabbage
2 small cans of tomato sauce
-2 cans of tomato soup

 First, remove the CORE from the cabbge. Then place the whole head in a big pot of water (to cover the cabbage). Bring to a boil and as it boils, remove each leaf to a colander. This usually takes about 10 mins. Meanwhile, cook your rice. Chop your onions and celery too.
Now mix together the ground beef, salt, pepper and garlic powder (I just eye it), rice and celery and onion. Place about a 1/3 to a 1/2 cup of the meat mixture onto a cabbage leaf, roll up and roll the sides in. Place seam side down in a lasagna pan. Repeat for each cabbage leaf. When the pan is full, mix tiogether the soup and tomato sauce and pour all over the cabbage rolls. I also sprinkle some more salt and pepper on top. Bake at 350 for about an hour. Mine took a little less than an hour. You can also do these ahead and freeze them. I recommend cooking them before freeing them, because if you don't they take FOREVER to cook after being frozen:):) I learned this the HARD WAY!!!!!!!!!!!:):)
I hope you will try these. We really enjoy them. I never liked cabbage til I had these. My MIL made them all the time and I loved them the first time.. Thanks for dropping by. I will be linking to:
