Step 1: Cook the cabbage leaves in water.

Blanch the cabbage leaves for about 1 minute in a large pot of boiling water, until they are soft and stretchy.

Second, make the filling

Mix the ground beef, 1 cup of the sauce, the rice, the bread crumbs, the onion, and the parsley in a large bowl.
Add salt and pepper to taste.

Step 3: Get the baking sheet ready

Spread the sauce in a thin layer on the bottom of a large baking dish.

Step 4: Write out the lists

Cut the hard, triangular rib out of each cabbage leaf with a paring knife.
Put about 1/2 cup of the filling at one end of each sheet, then roll, bending the sides as you go.
In a baking dish, put the rolls seam-side down on top of the sauce.
Pour the rest of the sauce over the cabbage rolls, and then cover the dish with aluminum foil.

Step 5: Put the rolls in the oven

Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until both the rice and the meat are done.

Enjoy !
