Meme's Cabbage Rolls

I take about 12 cabbage leaves and put in pot
of water - bring to a boil and turn off- let sit about 10 minutes in the hot water - then drain - they will cool as you are making beef mix-
  • 1 pound lean ground beef-
  • 2/3 cup instant rice or left over cooked plain rice
  • 1 can tomato sauce- (15 oz. )
  • ( I have used tomato soup in place of sauce--1 can plus 1 can water and omit the other half cup of water)
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • dash or two of pepper
  • 1 teaspoon sugar( cuts the acid taste )
  • 1/2 cup water

mix tomato sauce - water - salt - pepper- sugar , together =

mix beef and rice and add 1/2 the sauce mix-

place approx 1/3 cup of mix into each cabbage leaf-

wrap up and place in a un-greased baking dish ( approx 8 by 8)

pour remaining sauce over rolls and bake at 350F- oven for 50 minutes =

( make sure beef is well done- really depends on thickness of rolls_)
