This recipe is so easy and people just love these cabbage rolls. Much of the flavor comes from the sauerkraut and tomato juice, so there is little else to it. I have substituted lean ground beef for half of the ground pork with much success.

  1. Combine pork, rice, onions, pepper, garlic powder, salt and paprika in large bowl.
  2. Steam heads of cabbage until leaves remove easily (about 5 minutes each in microwave along with 1/2 cup water, covered with plastic wrap works well) Take handfuls of meat mixture and roll up in cabbage leaves.
  3. Place rolls in roasting pan.
  4. After covering the bottom of the pan, top with half of the sauerkraut and half of the tomatoes.
  5. Repeat with second layer.
  6. Pour tomato juice over top.
  7. Cover and bake 2 1/2 hours at 350 degrees.
