Transcript:Stuffed Cabbage

Hi! This is Natasha Levitan for About.com. Stuffed cabbage is a dish consisting of cooked cabbage leaves wrapped around a variety of fillings. Many country's cuisines include stuffed cabbage in their menu, but in Eastern Europe it is a particular favorite and it's usually made with a meat filling covered in tomato sauce.

Stuffed Cabbage Ingredients

You'll need:
  • 1 medium head cabbage
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 cup cooked rice
  • 1 chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup half and half
  • 12 oz tomato sauce
  • 1 tbsp. parsley
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 6 cloves

Prepare the Cabbage

Using a paring knife cut out the cabbage stalk. Bring water to boil in a large pot. Place the head of cabbage into the pot and boil for 15 minutes or until it is pliable and soft. Drain and allow to cool completely. Remove the hard outer vein from the leaves.

Prepare the Stuffing

In a separate large bowl, combine the beef, rice, half and half, chopped onion, parsley and mix well.

Stuff the Cabbage Leaves

Place a small amount, into the center of a cabbage leaf and fold leaf over, tucking it into the sides of the leaf to keep meat mixture inside.

Cook the Stuffed Cabbage

Shred the smaller inside leaves that have remained. Mix tomato sauce, vinegar and sugar together. Line up the bottom of the dish with chopped leaves, then place your stuffed cabbage on top. Distribute 6 cloves in the dish. Turn the heat to low and simmer for about 60 minutes.
