Meat and rice are the ultimate comfort food! Cabbage rolls are a classic in many countries in the world with differences in fillings and spices. The recipe below is a traditional take that the whole family will really enjoy!


  • 12 cabbage leaves
  • 1 cup cooked white rice 
  • 1 egg (beaten)
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup onion (minced) 
  • 1 pound extra-lean meat (half beef and half pork)
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 8-ounce cans tomato sauce
  • 1 14.5-ounce can diced or crushed tomatoes (with liquid)
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce


  1. You will need to steam the cabbage leaves first. To do so, fill a pot with water and let the cabbage head boil for about 6-8 minutes. After a little while you will notice that the leaves separating from the head. If you wish, you can gently peel away the leaves using a fork. Then, drain the head of cabbage and peel the necessary amount of leaves when cool.
  2. In a large mixing bowl and combine the cooked rice, egg, milk, onion, garlic powder, ground beef, ground pork, salt, and pepper. Scoop about a 1/4 cup of the mixture into the center of each cabbage leaf and roll them up and tuck in the ends.
  3. You can slow cook the rolls or bake them. For the slow cooker simply place the rolls inside. Or grease a 9x13 baking dish, place the rolls and preheat the oven to 350F degrees. 
  4. In a separate mixing bowl, combine together the tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, brown sugar, lemon juice, and Worcestershire sauce. Pour this sauce over the cabbage rolls.
  5. Set the slow cook on low for 8 to 9 hours or if you are using the oven, cover with foil and bake for 1 hour at 350 degrees F. Enjoy!
