Kittencal's Cabbage Rolls With Tomato Sauce
220 mins (prep 40, cooking 180)
17 ingredients
16-20 servings
This is my own recipe that I have made for over 25 years, I have made these for weddings, socials and large get togethers and everyone loves them --- I have two large cabbage listed as you will need extra cabbage leaves to line the bottom and top of the pan to prevent the rolls from over browning which may happen during the long cooking time --- cooked rice will also be fine for this and if you like lots of rice you may increase amount --- make certain that the heads of cabbage are frozen then completely thawed before starting this recipe, this will allow for easy removal of the leaves, allow the frozen cabbage heads thaw at room temperature overnight in bowls --- to save some time I most always remove the cabbage leaves a day ahead and refrigerate in a bowl and you may even prepare the ground beef mixture a day ahead so the following day just mix the sauce roll and cook --- for these cabbage rolls I do not precook the ground beef it will cook thoroughly in the oven --- I have listed the sauerkraut as optional if you are a sauerkraut-lover then add it in I most always do it really adds extra flavor to the cabbage and you may use more than 1/2 cup if desired --- the amounts listed will fill a 13 x 9-inch pan very full or even better so you do not over crowd the rolls a larger pan may be used or use two pans and freeze one for another meal, just thaw overnight in the fridge then allow to sit at room temperature for about 2 hours then cook as stated --- if you like lots of sauce then you may double amounts but I would suggest to make it in a larger baking pan if you are doubling the sauce.
