How To Make Instant Pot® Basic Cabbage Rolls
These cabbage rolls are packed with the flavors from three kinds of meat and tender rice that’s simmered in savory tomato sauce, for a filling meal!
Pour 1½ cups of water into a multi-functional pressure cooker such as Instant Pot®. Insert the trivet.
Remove tough outer leaves and core from the cabbage. Place the cabbage, core-side down, on the trivet.
Close and lock the lid, and set vent to “Sealing”. Select the “Manual” function according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
Set timer for 9 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.
Combine the rice and ½ cup of water in a small bowl. Combine the beef, pork, veal, ⅓ cup tomato sauce, onion, garlic, parsley, salt, and pepper in a separate bowl.
Release the pressure carefully for about 5 minutes using the quick-release method according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Unlock and remove the lid.
Transfer cabbage to a plate. Drain water from the pot insert. Add the remaining tomato sauce from the opened can and 1 teaspoon of salt. Replace the trivet in the pot.
Drain the rice and add to the bowl with the meat mixture.
Separate the cooked cabbage leaves carefully and shave off the tough veins. Place a cabbage leaf on a work surface. Fill with 2 tablespoons of meat mixture and roll up, tucking in the sides.
Place the rolled leaf on the trivet in the pot. Continue with the remaining leaves and filling, placing the first layer facing the same way and the second layer facing the opposite way. Pour the remaining can of tomato sauce over the rolls.
Close and lock the lid. Select the “Stew/Meat” function according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Set the timer for 22 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.
Release the pressure using the natural-release method according to the manufacturer’s instructions for 10 minutes.
Release the remaining pressure carefully using the quick-release method according to the manufacturer’s instructions for about 5 minutes. Unlock and remove the lid.
Serve warm, and enjoy!
