    1 head of cabbage
    cooked brown rice, 2 cups
    1 can diced tomatoes
    1/2 lb ground beef
    1/2 onion, chopped
    1/2 green pepper, chopped
    1 8 oz can of tomato sauce
    2 tsp brown sugar, packed
    2 tbsp ketchup


Cook brown rice according to directions.

Sautee bell peppers, onions, and beef until beef is browned and veggies are soft and translucent. Add spices as you cook, to taste. Add can of tomatoes near the very end, undrained.

Drop a head of cabbage in a large pot of boiling water. Boil for a few minutes, pull out and remove the outer leaves. Put the head of the cabbage back into the boiling water, and repeat the process until you have 8 leaves.

In a large bowl, mix meat mixture with cooked rice. Use this rice/meat mixture to "stuff" the cabbage rolls. Divide mixture evenly, and then roll up the cabbage, burrito style. Place, seam side down, in a casserole dish. Continue until the casserole dish is full.

In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, tomato sauce, and ketchup. Whisk together, and then pour over the cabbage rolls.

Bake, covered, for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Serve with sour cream, if desired.

    If you swap the ground beef for ground turkey and some fennel seed, you can lower the calories, and have a richer taste.. - 12/28/10
