"IN OUR area of Pennsylvania, cabbage rolls are frequently served at special occasions of all kinds. These versatile roll-ups can be stuffed with pork or other kinds of fillings. Though we've tried some of the others, my family always goes back to the ground beef—it just tastes best to us."
- 1 large head cabbage
- 1 cup quick-cooking rice, cooked and cooled
- 1 pound lean ground beef (90% lean)
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed tomato soup, undiluted, divided
- 1/2 cup water
- Cook cabbage in boiling water only until leaves fall off head. Reserve 14-16 large leaves for rolls and set aside remaining cabbage.
- In a bowl, combine rice, beef, onion, Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper and 1/4 cup soup. Put 2 to 3 tablespoons meat mixture on each cabbage leaf. Fold in sides, then roll up leaves to completely enclose meat.
- Line a Dutch oven with leftover cabbage leaves. Combine remaining soup and water; pour over cabbage. Stack cabbage rolls on top of sauce. Cover. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer on low for 1 to 1-1/2 hours or until rolls are tender.
- Remove rolls and cabbage. If desired, sauce may be thickened by boiling over high heat. Spoon sauce over rolls and cabbage and serve immediately. Yield: 4-6 servings.
