  6. Crumble beef over mixture; mix well.
  7. Shape into 2 inch balls.
  8. Place one meatball on each cabbage leaf; fold in sides.
  9. Starting at an unfolded edge, roll up leaf to completely enclose meatball.
  10. Secure with toothpicks. Place in a 5 quart slow cooker.
  11. Pour remaining tomato sauce over rolls; cover and cook on low for 7-8 hours or until meat is no longer pink and cabbage is tender. Discard toothpicks.
