Stuffed Cabbage Rolls


This cabbage rolls recipe is super easy to prep with cabbage leaves, ground beef, rice, and condensed tomato soup. I have been using this recipe for well over 20 years and still love it! To speed things up the rolls are cooked in a skillet on the stovetop but this recipe also works well in a slow cooker.

8 cabbage rolls


  • cup water

  • cup uncooked white rice

  • 8 cabbage leaves

  • 1 pound lean ground beef

  • ¼ cup chopped onion

  • 1 egg, slightly beaten

  • 1 (10.5 ounce) can condensed tomato soup, divided

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper


  1. Bring water and rice to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer until rice is tender and liquid has been absorbed, about 20 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, bring a large, wide saucepan of lightly salted water to a boil. Add cabbage leaves and cook for 2 to 4 minutes or until softened; drain.

  3. Combine ground beef, 1 cup of cooked rice, onion, egg, 2 tablespoons of tomato soup, salt, and pepper in a large bowl; mix thoroughly.

  4. Spoon about 2 tablespoons of beef mixture onto each cabbage leaf; bring one end of the cabbage leaf over the mixture, rolling and tucking in the ends to prevent the filling from falling out.

  5. Place cabbage rolls in a large skillet over medium heat; pour remaining tomato soup on top. Cover and bring to a boil; reduce heat to low and simmer for about 40 minutes, stirring and basting with the liquid often.
