Cabbage Rolls

Posted on: April 30, 2011

This is definitely one of those dishes that you make a big batch and freeze some! I use freezer zip bags and bag them in 4’s as that’s all we need for one supper! I freeze them without the tomato sauce but it can be done either way! Good luck, what will be your twist to this recipe?


  • 24 leaves cabbage
  • 1 cup cooked white rice
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 minced onion
  • 2 pounds extra-lean ground beef ( or half pork, lamb or turkey)
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons ground black pepper
  • 2 (8 ounce) cans tomato sauce
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 can of tomato soup not diluted (or small can tomato juice if the soup has wheat in it, just omit if it does)
  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Boil cabbage leaves 2 minutes; drain. Peeling them gently, one at a time.
  2. In large bowl, combine 1 cup cooked rice, eggs, onion, ground beef, salt, and pepper. Place about 1/4 cup of meat mixture in center of each cabbage leaf, and roll up, tucking in ends. Place rolls in slow cooker or roasting pan.
  3. In a small bowl, mix together tomato sauce, brown sugar and soup. Pour over cabbage rolls.
  4. Cover, and cook on Low 8 to 9 hours in crock pot or at 350 for 2-3 hours till cabbage is tender and meat cooked through.
