How to Make Rusty's Stuffed Cabbage


  1. Mix together all the filling ingredients.
  2. Use about 1/3 cup mixture and shape into a small loaf that is not as wide as the cabbage leaves. Wrap up in a cabbage leaf, folding in the sides of the leaf to totally cover the filling as you roll it. Place it seam side down in a baking dish. Repeat until all leaves and filling are used.
  3. Make sauce by combining all the ingredients and cooking for 10 minutes. Pour over the pan of cabbage rolls and bake at 350 degrees F until filling is done.
