  • 1 large cabbage
  • 1 pound ground meat (beef, pork, or a mix)
  • 1 cup rice
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 can diced tomatoes (14.5 oz)
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Olive oil



Prepare the cabbage: Remove the damaged outer leaves from the cabbage and soak it in boiling water for about 5 minutes.

This will make the leaves soft and easier to roll.

Prepare the stuffing: In a frying pan, heat some olive oil and add the finely chopped onion and garlic.

Sauté until translucent.

Add the ground meat and cook until golden brown.

Add the rice and toast it for a couple of minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

Roll the cabbage rolls: Take a cabbage leaf and put some of the meat and rice filling in the center.

Roll the leaf around the filling, folding the sides inward to form a roll.

Repeat with all the leaves and filling.

Prepare the sauce: In a large pot, pour the diced tomatoes and add the dried oregano.

Season with salt and pepper.

Cook over medium heat for about 10 to 15 minutes until the sauce thickens slightly.

Cook the cabbage rolls: Place the cabbage rolls in the tomato sauce, cover the pot with a lid and cook over medium-low heat for about 30-40 minutes, until the cabbage is tender and the rice is cooked.

Serving: Once cooked, remove the cabbage rolls from the pot and arrange them on a serving platter. Sprinkle with grated cheese if desired. Serve the cabbage rolls hot and enjoy their delicious flavor!
