DIRECTIONS

  • Cook rice for 5 minutes; then drain.
  • Remove core from cabbage and place in a large pot of boiling salted water.
  • Boil until large outer leaves get slightly limp and separate from head (10 minutes); then remove and de-vein (save 2 cups cabbage water for sauce).
  • Mix together meat, 1/2 cup tomato sauce, partially cooked rice, garlic salt, and pepper.
  • Place about 4 tablespoons rice mixture (or according to size of leaf) on each cabbage leaf, fold the ends in over the filling and roll up.
  • Stack tightly in a large pot or dutch oven.
  • Add water saved from boiling cabbage and pour remaining tomato sauce on top.
  • Cover and cook over medium heat for 2 hours (check occasionally to make sure the bottoms aren't scorching; turn heat down if they start to).
  • Serve hot.
