One-Skillet Cabbage Rolls

  • 1 head green cabbage
  • 1 1/2 lbs. lean ground beef
  • 1/2 c. minute rice
  • 1/2 c. finely chopped onion
  • 1 egg
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 3-4 c. tomato sauce -- choose your favorite variety

Fill the electric skillet 2/3 full with water and bring to a boil. Tear the leaves off the cabbage and cook them in the boiling water until they are wilted enough to be flexible. Cool them completely and pour the water out of the electric skillet.

Mix the ground beef, rice, onion, egg, salt, pepper, and cinnamon together. Form a few tablespoons of the mixture into a cylinder, and then carefully roll it up in a cabbage leaf. Secure the rolls with toothpicks.

Place the rolls in the electric skillet and pour enough tomato sauce in to nearly cover them. Cover the skillet and simmer for 1 1/2 to 2 hours, or until the meat is cooked and the consistency is to your liking.

  • Yields: 6-8 servings
