How to make it

  • Remove the core from the cabbage.

  • Place about 2 Tbsp. of the meat mixture in the center of a cabbage leaf and roll inward, then roll sides in and continue to roll.
  • Place the rolls in a large pot and pour the tomato sauce onto the rolls.
  • Then, with you hands, squeeze canned tomatoes and arrange on top of the cabbage rolls.

    THAT'S what I'm talkin' about! Love ethnic! The foods I've grown up with are my comfort food, but my taste buds love to travel.

    Outstanding! I was watching Guy on the Food Channel last night and he stopped in a diner where they made cabbage rolls and now here is your recipe. And, my friend, you get my ^5 and honors too.

    These are wonderful, this is the way I make them too! You have to have the beef, pork, and veal, for them to taste perfect! HIGH 5

    Picture perfect. One of my favorites. I love going to Los Angeles to Canters restaurant and getting their cabbage rolls. Actually, cabbage rolls anywhere is just fine with me. Dang I love cabbage rolls and baking with the sauce is pretty much a must for me. take out some rolls from the pan, spooning on some sauce, oh I can taste it now. thanks, JJ.

    This recipe sounds great and I would substitute the ground beef with ground turkey/chicken. Thank you for posting.

    I am going to make these when I am in the new home next month for my two grandkids, and yes I will bake them in the oven slowly all day, so I can remember what our home used to smell like with these cooking in the oven when I was a young girl. Thanks for the recipe

    this is very simmilar to my recipe ( that I can't find) but instead of simmering they are baked in the oven.

    Hi there invisiblechef ;-) Yes, you could steam them but I personally think the tomato sauce or juice would be missed.
