1 lb lean ground beef
1 lb ground pork
1 medium grated onion
3/4 cup cooked white rice/can be leftover
garlic salt---I don't really measure spices but , 1 to 2 tsp of each should do it.
I large can tomatoe juice
2 cans tomatoe paste
can of diced tomatoes, if you have some on hand
2-3 cloves of garlic
large head of cabbage
First remove core from cabbage. Place whole cabbage in large pot, cover with water, boil for about half hour. Drain and let cool, enough to handle
Meanwhile mix all listed ingredients together down to the garlic powder.
When your cabbage has cooled a bit. The leaves should peel off one by one. Take a small handful of meat and wrap up in cabbage leaf. Place in large roaster. Add in carrots, onions, garlic. pour tomatoes, juice and paste over all. If need be add a bit of water until liquid comes about half way up roaster. If there is any extra cabbage I lay it on top of cabbage rolls , we love the cabbage.
Set over 400 degrees for 30 minutes, then turn down to 335 for 2 and half to 3 hours. At that time , test one to see how it is. The cabbage should be nice and tender and everything well cooked.
I serve with crusty bread and salad or perogies.
