1 head cabbage
1 lb minced meat (beef, pork and/or veal)
1 cup chopped onion
1 cup cooked rice
2 eggs, beaten
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tbsps paprika
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
3 1/2 cups tomato sauce
Place the cabbage in a large pot and cover with salted water. Bring to a boil then simmer 8-10 minutes. Remove and drain. Cool until you can handle it. Remove leaves and spread out on work surface. Cool completely.
Combine all the ingredients except the tomato sauce and fill each leaf. I like to use the trio of meat, but most recipes will tell you to use pork and beef. To roll, tuck the sides over and roll away from you keeping the sides tucked in. Secure with a toothpick.
Cover bottom of casserole dish with a little tomato sauce and top with cabbage rolls. Cover with the remaining sauce.
Cover and bake at 375 F for 1 hour.
