This is a classic Cajun dish that can be frozen. Prepare a large batch to be enjoyed over and over again.
- 1 lbs ground beef (or half beef and half pork)
- 1/2 cup onions, chopped
- salt and pepper to taste
- 3/4 cup uncooked rice
- 1 large head of cabbage
- 2 (8 oz) cans tomato sauce or Rotel tomatoes for spicy
- 2 cans water
- 1 1/2 tsp sugar
Cut and core the heart of the cabbage as far down as you can, keeping cabbage whole.
In a large pot, boil water and parboil the cabbage. As the cabbage gets softer, remove the leaves individually.
Combine the beef, rice, onions and seasonings. Separate into portions needed
Wrap the softened cabbage leaves around the meat balls and fasten with toothpicks.
In a large pot, put 2 cans tomato sauce and 2 cans water (add enough water to mark just below the top of the rolls). Add salt, pepper and sugar.
Cook over low heat for 1 hour.
