We always made these at harvest time when the neighbors got together and filled silo. This is how I learned to make them from my grandmother.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Brown ground beef and onion. Salt and pepper to taste. Drain grease. Stir together rice and browned ground beef and set aside.
- 2Bring a large kettle of water to a boil and remove from heat.
- 3Carefully remove 16 leaves from the head of cabbage and put leaves in the water and let set until wilted.
- 4Remove a leaf from the water with tongs, take a good sized tablespoon of the hamburger-rice mixture into the leaf and wrap leaf around the burger mixture. May need to secure with a toothpick to keep closed.
- 5Place in a greased 9x13 pan.
- 6Repeat with remaining leaves and burger mixture.
- 7When you have used all the mixture, pour tomato juice and water over top of cabbage rolls.
- 8Cover and bake for an hour at 325.
