Tips

Serve with duchess potatoes, and steamed carrots. (not included in nutrition)
Also for slow cooker, haven't tried it yet, but I would assume it has to cook for at least 6-8 hrs. Trying the slow cooker is on my list next!


Directions

1) Preheat oven to 400F
2) Take a sharp knife and cut out the center of the cabbage. remove most outer 1-2 leafs. Put head into boiling salt water for 10 minutes. Should be completely covered (skip salt for low sodium)
3) Capture water from cabbage cooking when done. Speed up cooling with ice water
4) Carefully lift off one leaf at a time, put aside. (should get about 6 fairly big ones)
6) Mix ground meat with egg, crumbled up toast, half the onion, garlic, mustard, and salt/pepper in a bowl until all ingredients are mixed well.
7) Divide meat into 6 even portions. Put one into each leaf. Roll up and secure with a toothpick.
8) Fry rolls in hot pan with the olive oil from each side, then place in oven durable dish/ glass dish
9) Cut rest of cabbage head into little pieces, mix with rest of the onion, fry in the pan of the rolls. for 10-12 minutes.
10) add 4 cups of the cabbage water from earlier
11) Stir in gravy mix, let bubble for 1 minute
12) pour mix over the rolls, make sure gravy is evenly distributed, cabbage pieces can cover rolls and slip in between.
13) put in oven for 1.5 hrs
14) check core temp to make sure meat is done
