Preparation: 20 minutes
Cooking: 1 hour 30 minutes
Total: 1 hour 50 minutes



  • 1 head of cabbage
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 cup cooked rice
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 can (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.

  2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Carefully remove the core from the cabbage and place it in the boiling water. Cook for 5-7 minutes, or until the leaves begin to soften. Remove the cabbage from the water and let it cool slightly. Remove 8 large leaves and set aside.

  3. In a large bowl, combine the ground beef, diced onion, minced garlic, cooked rice, chopped parsley, grated Parmesan cheese, salt, and black pepper. Mix well.

  4. Take one cabbage leaf and place about 1/4 cup of the beef mixture in the center. Roll the leaf, tucking in the sides as you go, to form a tight roll. Repeat with the remaining cabbage leaves and beef mixture.

  5. In a large oven-safe skillet or Dutch oven, combine the diced tomatoes, beef broth, and tomato paste. Stir well. Place the stuffed cabbage rolls seam side down in the skillet.

  6. Cover the skillet and transfer it to the preheated oven. Bake for 1 hour.

  7. Remove the cover and baste the cabbage rolls with the sauce. Bake for an additional 30 minutes, uncovered.

  8. Serve the braised stuffed cabbage rolls with the sauce spooned over the top.
