  • 1 cup COOKED long-grain rice (or similar variety)
  • 1.5 pounds lean ground beef (or ‘extra lean’)
  • 1.5 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 yellow onion, peeled and minced
  • ⅓ cup parsley, roughly chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1.5 teaspoons salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon dried dill
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ to 1 teaspoon red chili flakes (optional)
  • 42 ounces tomato sauce, divided (Three 398 millilitre cans or 14-ounce cans, roughly 5 cups)
  • 1 medium head green cabbage (you’ll need about 18 leaves for the rolls and another 8 to 10 or so for the bottom of the dish and over top.)
  • Half cup of water (leftover from boiling cabbage)
  • Fresh dill, chopped (garnish, optional)


  1. Cook rice per package instructions and set aside. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a large bowl, combine ground beef with Worcestershire sauce, egg, cooked rice, onion, parsley, garlic, salt, pepper, dill, onion powder, red chili flakes (if using), and ½ cup of tomato sauce. Mix until combined.
  3. In a large pot of boiling water, add the head of cabbage and boil for 8 to 10 minutes. Carefully turn over partway through. Remove, reserving half a cup of water for the sauce.
  4. Once cabbage is cool enough to handle, carefully remove leaves and cut out the core from each leaf. Soften more leaves as needed by boiling again.
  5. Place some cabbage leaves on the bottom of a deep 9″ x 13″ baking dish or roasting pan. Take one leaf at a time, distribute about ¼ cup of the ground beef mixture on top, and wrap up (fold in sides and roll up, placing in prepared dish, seam side down). Continue with remaining ground beef mixture and leaves.
  6. Combine the remaining tomato sauce with ½ cup of cabbage water. Whisk to incorporate everything. Pour over the top of cabbage rolls.
