- 1 head of cabbage
- 1 lb ground beef
- 2 cups of cooked rice
- 1 onion, diced
- 2 8 oz cans tomato sauce (store brand is fine, at my Aldi it's only 25 cents a can)
- 1 10 oz can tomato soup (I use Campbells's condensed)
- 1/3 cup ketchup (Heinz is my go to)
- smoked paprika
- garlic powder
- onion powder
- salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 350.
-I use a rice cooker to cook my rice while I am boiling the cabbage-
Place head of cabbage in a pot and cover with 1 inch of cold water. Bring to a boil, turn heat off, let sit at least 20 minutes until leaves become pliable. Drain and let cool enough to handle.
Brown ground beef, with onions. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Add a teaspoon each of paprika, garlic powder, and onion powder. Stir well.
Mix together tomato soup, tomato sauce, and ketchup. Season with pepper and a dash of salt.
Add 2 tablespoons of sauce to meat. Mix in cooked rice. Combine well.
Layer a thin layer of the sauce on the bottom of a baking dish.
Take a cabbage leaf and spoon a large spoonful of meat and rice mixture into the leaf. Fold the leaf around the meat. Place stuffed cabbage on top of sauce in baking dish. Repeat until meat mixture is gone. Cover cabbage rolls with remaining sauce. Bake 30-45 minutes.
