  • Baking Dish
  • Spatula


  • 1 head green cabbage
  • 1 cup uncooked rice
  • 1 pound ground pork or ground turkey
  • ½ pound ground beef
  • 2 small onions diced.

  • 1 can tomato soup 10.5 ounces


  • Boil cabbage leaves until tender, about 2 minutes. Put aside to cool.

  • To ensure that the rice is slightly underdone, cook it as directed on the package, minus five minutes. Put aside.

    Cabbage Rolls Recipe
  • In a bowl, combine the tomato soup and leftover sauce. Line a 9×13 pan with a very thin coating of the tomato sauce mixture.
  • If a cabbage leaf has a thick stalk, trim or remove it. Place the cabbage leaf flat and fill the center with ¼ to ⅓ cup of the filling.
  • Roll up the cabbage, tucking in the edges. Put the pan with the seam side down. Continue with the leftover cabbage.
  • Drizzle the cabbage with the sauce and securely wrap it in foil. For 75-90 minutes, bake. Chill for fifteen minutes prior to serving.


Cut about ¼” from the bottom of the cabbage head and immerse the entire head in boiling water to remove the leaves. Boil for approximately two minutes. Eliminate the pliable foliage. Reintroduce the remaining head into the boiling water and continue until all the leaves have been eliminated. When leaves are cooked, remove any rough stems. After boiling, trim the leaf’s thick stem with a tiny knife.
  • If the leaves are unattractive, they will cook to perfection if you overlap and fill them.
  • Your cabbage’s size will determine how much filling you have left over.
  • Filling can also be filled inside bell peppers or zucchini, or added to tomato soup.
  • You can freeze cabbage rolls both before and after baking.
