Stuffed Cabbage Rolls

Today I decided to make something different something that I had never made before. I have made stuffed peppers before but I have never made stuffed cabbage, and cabbage is cheaper than bell peppers. I found quite a few recipes in my cookbook collection and on the web. I combined a few recipes and added my little touches here and there. The dish turned out pretty good I will be making this again.

Stuffed Cabbage Rolls

1 pound ground beef
½ cup onion, chopped
½ teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper
1 (14 oz.) can diced tomatoes, divided
1 cup water
1/3 cup uncooked log grain rice
½ teaspoon dried oregano
8 large cabbage leaves
1 (15 oz.) can tomato sauce
1 teaspoon sugar
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon dried oregano

In a large skillet cook ground beef and onion until meat is brown and onion is tender. Drain off fat. Stir in garlic powder, salt, pepper, 1 cup of can diced tomatoes, water, rice and ½ teaspoon dried oregano. Bring to a boil; reduce heat. Simmer covered, for 20 minutes or until rice is tender.
Mean while bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Immerse cabbage leaves, 4 at a time into boiling water for 2 to 3 minutes or until limp. Set aside.
In a small pan combine remaining diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, sugar, ¼ teaspoon garlic powder and ½ teaspoon dried oregano. Bring mixture to a simmer and simmer for about 5 minutes.
Pour ½ of the mixture into a 13x9 inch baking dish
Place about 1/3 cup of meat mixture on each cabbage leaf. Fold in sides. Starting at an unfolded edge, carefully roll up each leaf. Place cabbage rolls on sauce in baking dish. Cover with remaining sauce. Cover dish and bake in a 350⁰F oven for 35 to 40 minutes or until heated through.
