1 head green cabbage

1 cup uncooked rice

1 pound ground pork (or ground turkey)

½ pound ground beef

2 small onions (diced)

3 cloves garlic (minced)

½ teaspoon dill weed

3 tablespoons fresh parsley (chopped)

salt & pepper (to taste)

1 can diced tomatoes (14 ounces with juices)

1 egg

1 ½ cups + ⅓ cup tomato sauce (divided)

1 can tomato soup (10.5 ounces)


Boil cabbage leaves for about 2 minutes or until soft. (See note below for removing leaves). Set aside to cool.

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Cook rice according to package directions but reduce cooking time by 5 minutes so the rice is slightly underdone. Set aside.

Cook pork (or turkey), beef, onions, garlic, & seasonings in a pan until no pink remains. Drain any fat. Add in rice, diced tomatoes, & ⅓ cup of tomato sauce. Stir in egg.

Mix remaining tomato sauce and tomato soup in a bowl. Spread a very thin layer of the tomato sauce mixture in a 9x13 pan.

Remove or thin any thick stem on cabbage leaves. Lay the cabbage leaf flat and add ¼ to ⅓ cup filling to the center of the leaf. Fold in the sides and roll the cabbage up. Place seam side down in the pan. (See note for small leaves). Repeat with remaining cabbage.

Pour sauce over the cabbage and cover tightly with foil. Bake for 75-90 minutes. Let cool for 15 minutes before serving.
