Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

1 medium cabbage


2 Tbsp. margarine
2 onions, sliced
3 cups canned tomatoes, with juice
1 ½ tsps. salt
½ tsp. pepper
Beef bones (optional)

1 pound ground beef
4 Tbsp. Uncooked rice
4 Tbsp. Grated onion
1 egg, beaten
3 Tbsp. cold water

3 Tbsp. honey
¼ cup lemon juice
¼ cup seedless raisins


Prepare cabbage by either boiling or freezing method. Remove and check leaves for bugs.

SAUCE: Heat margarine in a 6-quart pot and sauté onions. Add tomatoes, salt, pepper and bones. Cover and cook for 30 minutes.


In a bowl combine meat, rice, onion, egg and water. Place 1 large tablespoon of mixture onto each leaf and roll according to illustrations.

Place cabbage rolls in sauce. Cover and cook for 1 ½ hours over low heat. Sauce should cover at least half the rolls. If more sauce is necessary, add 1 cup tomato juice.

After 1 ½ hours, add honey, lemon juice, and raisins and cook 15 minutes more.

NOTE: Stuffed cabbage freezes well. When reheating defrosted stuffed cabbage, 6 potatoes cut in quarters may be added. Cook until potatoes are tender.
