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


Step 1

Cut and core the heart of the cabbage as far down as you can, keeping cabbage whole.

Step 2

In a large pot, boil water and parboil the cabbage. As the cabbage gets softer, remove the leaves individually.

Step 3

Combine the beef, rice, onions and seasonings. Separate into portions needed

Step 4

Wrap the softened cabbage leaves around the meat balls and fasten with toothpicks.

The rice will cook and expand

Step 5

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.

Step 6

Cook over low heat for 1 hour.
