Stuffed Cabage Rolls

I got this recipe from Liz's Cooking Blog. She was inspired by a recipe from "Sweet Tea in Texas as well as cabbage and onions from our CSA"

  • 12 Large Cabbage leaves
  • 1 lb Ground Pork
  • 1 Beaten Egg
  • 1/4 C Milk
  • 1/4 C finely chopped onion
  • 1 Tsp Salt
  • 1 Tsp pepper
  • 1 Tsp paprika
  • 1 Tsp cumin
  • 1 C Cooked Brown Rice
  • 1 8oz can of Tomato Sauce
  • 1 Tbsp Brown Sugar
  • 1 Tbsp Lemon Juice
  • 1 Tbsp Worcestershire

1. Start by browning your ground turkey. Season your ground turkey as it browns with garlic salt & lemon pepper. When this is done, drain and set aside.

2. Start water boiling in a large pot for your cabbage. The easiest way that I’ve found to get the leaves off is to submerge the whole head of cabbage for a couple of minutes and pull it out, taking as many leaves off as you can easily. Submerge again until you can pull a few more off. You want to keep the leaves as in tact as possible. Do this until you have about 12 whole leaves.

3. In a large bowl, combine the ground turkey, egg, milk, onion, spices, & rice. Mix well. Take about 1/4 C of this mix and put into the center of a leaf. Fold in the sides, then fold up the bottom until it looks like a little burrito. Place them seam side down in the Crockpot until you have gone through your leaves or ran out of

4. In another bowl, combine the tomato sauce, brown sugar, lemon juice, & Worcestershire. Pour this over your little cabbage burritos and put the lid on the Crockpot. Cook these in the Crockpot on low for about 6 hours.
