Prep: 10 mins
Cook: 56 mins
Total: 1 hr 6 mins


For the Filling:

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • ¼ cup rice, uncooked
  • 1 egg
  • 1 red onion, roughly 5 oz, grated
  • 1 carrot, roughly 4 oz, grated
  • ¼ tsp salt

For the Sauce:

  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup tomato juice

For the Stuffed Rolls:

  • 12 cabbage leaves, roughly from 1 lb cabbage

To Serve:

  • parsley, chopped


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.

  2. Combine all ingredients for the filling then shape this mixture into roughly 12 ounce balls.

  3. Combine all ingredients for the sauce then set aside.

  4. Blanch the cabbage leaves by covering them with boiling water and letting them soak for approximately 60 seconds or until pliable.

  5. Place a ball of meat mixture in the center of each leaf and roll, tucking ends securely.

  6. Place close together in a roasting pan and cover with sauce.

  7. Cover with foil, and braise in the oven for roughly 40 minutes or until done.

  8. Increase oven temperature to 400 degrees F then discard the foil, and broil the cabbage leaves for roughly 15 minutes or until golden brown on top.

  9. Pour sauce on top and garnish with chopped parsley and serve.
