Easy, delicious and fun! Just like Mom used to make. I remembered she always used tomato soup, which really makes a yummy difference.
"Outstanding. One thing I would change is to not boil the cabbage leaves for 10 minutes. Much of them fell apart. Next time, I'm going to try 5 minutes.
Also, I used a mix of ground pork and ground hamburger - added a nice zing.
Suggestion for leftovers - I had way too much meat, so I combined meat, left over cabbage, bread crumbs, garlic, and diced tomatoes together and made a meat loaf for sandwiches the next day. "

Bring a large pot of salted water to boil. Carefully cut from the stem of the cabbage and peel off 10 large leaves. Place in boiling water, stir gently. Boil for about 5 minutes. Drain in colander and rinse with cold water. Gently lay leaves out on paper towels to dry. Cut stem from remaining cabbage and discard. Cut cabbage in half and grate into a large bowl, discarding any large pieces.
In a large frying pan over med-high heat, sauté onion and garlic for 5 minutes. Add tomato, remaining cabbage, salt, pepper and red pepper if using. Cook and stir until liquid is gone and vegetables are soft, about 10 min. Remove from heat to cool.
In a large bowl, add ground beef, rice, cooled tomato mixture and bread crumbs. Mix well, adding more bread crumbs if mixture is too moist. It should be firm enough to handle.
Preheat oven to 375. Prepare a 13” x 9” baking dish with cooking spray. Working one at a time, place a cabbage leaf, stem side towards you, on work surface. Form a handful of meat mixture into a small “log”, place in middle of leaf. Fold sides in over meat, then stem side forward to make roll. Place seam side down in baking dish. Repeat with remaining meat mixture and cabbage leaves.
Wisk together soup, water and honey in a small bowl. Pour evenly over cabbage rolls. Cover baking dish tightly with foil. Bake at 375 for 1 hour. Remove foil, bake for another 20 minutes.

jamiethiele 3 weeks agoBelieve it or not, my 5 kids (between the ages of 8-12) LOVED this and asked if I would make it again! Very tasty...although I struggled with separating the cabbage leaves from the stem. :(
michellestlaurent 1 month agoVery time consuming and very difficult to get 10 leaves off without breaking or boiling the whole cabbage. Uses a lot of dishes to prep and too much filling. I haven't tried it just yet so I'm not sure if I'll make it again.
STbre 2 months agoTaste was a little bland, it needed more seasoning. meat mixture made way too much.

Heatherferg 7 months agoVery nice. I added some Tuscany seasoning to the mixture to lift it. Chief taste tester said I could cook that one again.
HONYDO 7 months agoThis was good. We loved it and will make it again.
amy_d_clark 7 months agoThis was amazing! My husband loved it. As others said, I didn't know what to do with the cheese, so I mixed some in with the stuffing and added some on top the last 20 min. Also next time I would half the recipe for the stuffing, I also made a meatloaf with the remainder.

DemonLlama1299 11 month agoWish I would have scrolled further down in reviews and seen the try 5 min boil on leaves I did 8 min and they tore apart. No way to salvage this one tonight. I may try again some other day.
