Every year around St. Patrick’s Day, my grocery stores have these awesome deals on cabbage. And every year, I buy a ton of cabbage, with no idea how to prepare it. So I’m trying to get a few go-to recipes to use all of this up!
Here’s a good one I made last night…
Stuffed Cabbage Rolls
1 Head Cabbage
1 lb. Ground Beef
1 Box Uncle Ben’s Wild Rice
1 Can Tomato Paste
1 (8oz) Can Tomato Sauce
Salt and Pepper
First, pop your head of cabbage in the freezer overnight…
Then take it out to let it thaw completely.
(Note: I would definitely boil the cabbage instead of softening it this way next time. It was a little tough.)
When the cabbage is thawed, peel the outer leaves off and wash. Set aside.
Mix the tomato paste and tomato sauce together. Add water until it reaches a medium consistency.
Brown the ground beef, and mix in just a little tomato sauce in a medium mixing bowl.
Cook the rice according to package directions, and add into this mixture. Add salt and pepper as needed.
Now, take a cabbage leaf and spoon a couple of spoonfuls of this mixture in the middle.
Fold it over into a ball. Place the rolls in a baking dish
and cover with remaining sauce.
Bake at 350 degrees for 40-50 minutes, basting with the sauce occasionally.
They were really good! Like I said, the leaves were a little tough, but boiling the cabbage should fix that.
I also want to try this recipe…it sounds good, and I love some soup! And I’ll still have a lot of cabbage to use up…any suggestions?
