Stuffed Cabbage Rolls Recipe

"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."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Cook: 1-1/4 hours YIELD:4-6 servings


  • 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


  • 1. Cook cabbage in boiling water only until leaves fall off head. Reserve 14-16 large leaves for rolls and set aside remaining cabbage.
  • 2. 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.
  • 3. 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.
  • 4. 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.

"I also have been making these for years and use a mixture of beef, pork & veal, 1 egg and about 1 teaspoon of garlic powder along with the salt & pepper. After making the rolls, I chop up the leftover cabbage and line the pan with the cabbage. I then mix a can of stewed sliced tomatoes with the tomato soup and pour that over the top. The seasonings of the stewed tomatoes helps flavor the cabbage a bit more!"

"I grew up eating "galumpkis" in western PA and have always loved them. I find tomato sauce to be better for the taste than using tomato soup. I chop up (course cut) the extra cabbage to line the pan rather than useing whole leafs. I actually like eating the cooked cabbage as much as the rolls, so chopped is easier to eat ."
