Tasty Cabbage Rolls
1 large head of cabbage
3 pounds hamburger
3 13 oz cans tomato soup
2 sticks of butter (slice 1 stick)
2 cups rice, cooked
1/2 cup bread crumbs
salt and pepper to taste
2 quarts water
To prepare cabbage for rolling hamburger, I like to do it the old fashioned way by floating it in a large pot of boiling water. Carefully cut slices so each cabbage leaf floats off of head. Remove leaves and drain on paper towels. Cut spine out of leaf.
Prepare beef for rolling, mix rice, bread crumbs, eggs, hamburger, salt and pepper. Roll individual leaves of cabbage with meat mixture.
Melt 1 stick of butter in cookwell while preheating 12 or 18 quart Nesco® Roaster Oven to 350 degrees. Place cabbage rolls in cookwell. After 1 layer, pour soup on top. Add butter slices. Layer this way until done. Add water to almost cover cabbage rolls.
Cook 1 to 2 hours.
Serves 18 to 24
