  • 12 leaves cabbage

  • 1 pound extra-lean ground beef

  • 1 cup cooked white rice

  • 1 egg, beaten

  • ¼ cup milk

  • ¼ cup minced onion

  • 1 ¼ teaspoons salt

  • 1 ¼ teaspoons ground black pepper

  • 1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce

  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce


  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Boil cabbage leaves for 2 minutes; drain.

  2. Combine ground beef, cooked rice, egg, milk, onion, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Spoon about 2 tablespoons of mixture onto each cabbage leaf. Bring one end of the cabbage leaf over the mixture, rolling and tucking in the ends to prevent filling from falling out; arrange rolls in a single layer in the slow cooker.

  3. Mix tomato sauce, brown sugar, lemon juice, and Worcestershire sauce together in a small bowl until combined. Pour over cabbage rolls.

  4. Cover and cook on Low for 8 to 9 hours.
