Cabbage Rolls Recipe

This recipe for cabbage rolls is from my mother-in-law.  When I married her son, I asked her to share with me some of his favorite recipes so that I could “make it like Mom made it”.  My hubby always appreciates it when I take the time to make his mom’s Cabbage Rolls, which always makes me happy too!  I hope you enjoy the recipe. 🙂


Cabbage Roll Filling Ingredients:

1 pound ground chuck
1 cup cooked rice
1 egg, beaten
1/3 cup Worcestershire sauce
1 small onion, chopped
1 red bell pepper, chopped
dash of salt & pepper
dash of garlic powder
dash of cayenne pepper
Steamed cabbage leaves

Cabbage Rolls Sauce Ingredients:

2 cups tomato sauce
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon sugar
dash of garlic

Mix uncooked meat, cooked rice, onion, peppers and seasonings in a large bowl.  Place some meat mixture in the middle of a cabbage leaf and roll up.  (like you’d roll up a burrito)

Place the cabbage rolls in a 9×13″ glass baking dish or cast iron bakeware.  Pour sauce over the top.  Cover baking dish with foil.  Bake in a 350º F oven for 40 minutes or until the meat is cooked through.

Stuffed Hamburgers

1 1/2 cups sliced onions (about 3 medium)
8 oz. button or crimini mushrooms, sliced (3 cups)
1 tbsp. olive oil
2 tbsp snipped fresh parsley
2 1/2 lb. 85% lean ground beef
1/3 cup Worcestershire sauce
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. ground black pepper
16 slices apple wood smoked bacon (optional)
8 slices Swiss, provolone, and/or Colby and Monterrey Jack cheese (optional)
8 Kaiser rolls or hamburger buns, split and toasted
Tomato slices (optional)

1. In very large skillet cook onions and mushrooms in hot oil over medium heat 15 to 20 minutes or until all liquid has evaporated, and onions and mushrooms are tender and golden brown, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Stir in parsley; set aside to cool slightly.

2. In very large mixing bowl mix beef, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, salt, and pepper until just combined (do not over mix). Shape mixture into 16 (3 1/2-inch-diameter) patties. Spoon filling onto half of patties to 1/2-inch of edge. Top with remaining patties; pinch to seal. If using, lay 2 bacon slices over each stuffed patty in crisscross pattern, tucking ends under.

3. For charcoal grill, arrange preheated coals around drip pan. Test for medium heat above pan. Place patties over drip pan on grill rack. Cover and grill 25 to 30 minutes or until done (160°F). (For gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Adjust for indirect grilling. Grill as above.)
Top with cheese. Cover; cook 1 to 2 minutes more or until cheese melts.

4. Transfer burgers to serving platter. Serve on buns with tomato slices.
