Stuffed Cabbage Rolls Recipe with Tomato Juice


Stuffed Cabbage Rolls, also known as Golumpki, is a traditional Eastern European dish made with ground meat and rice wrapped in cabbage leaves, and then simmered in a tomato-based sauce. This recipe will make about 8-10 rolls and will take about 2 hours to prepare and cook.


1 large head of green cabbage

1 lb ground beef or pork

1 cup cooked rice

1 onion, finely chopped

2 cloves of garlic, minced

1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

1 egg

Salt and pepper, to taste

1 (28 oz) can crushed tomatoes

1 cup tomato juice

1/4 cup brown sugar

1 tsp dried basil

1 tsp dried oregano

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp black pepper


Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Carefully remove the outer leaves of the cabbage, and blanch them in the boiling water for about 2-3 minutes or until they are pliable. Drain and set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground beef or pork, rice, onion, garlic, parsley, egg, salt and pepper. Mix well.

Place a heaping spoonful of the meat mixture in the center of each cabbage leaf. Roll the leaf around the filling, tucking in the sides as you go.

In a large pot or Dutch oven, combine the crushed tomatoes, tomato juice, brown sugar, basil, oregano, salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer.

Carefully place the cabbage rolls in the pot, seam-side down.

Cover and simmer for about 1 hour and 30 minutes or until the cabbage is tender and the meat is cooked through.

Remove the cabbage rolls from the pot and let them cool for a few minutes before serving.

Stuffed Cabbage Rolls is a delicious and hearty dish that is perfect for a comfort food. The combination of the savory meat filling and the tangy tomato sauce make it a perfect meal to enjoy with your family.
