An estimate based on a serving size.


  1. In a medium saucepan, heat olive oil over medium heat until shimmering, then cook garlic until fragrant, 1-2 minutes.
  2. Add crushed tomatoes, chili powder, chili powder, ground cumin, salt and pepper. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 10 minutes. Set aside to cool.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine ground beef, salt, pepper, paprika, cumin, oregano, rice, and 1 cup (260 g) tomato paste. Blend until combined. Chill in refrigerator until use.
  4. Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat. Add the cabbage, cut side down. Cover, reduce heat to medium and simmer for 15 minutes.
  5. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C) for 45 minutes.
  6. Transfer cabbage to a cutting board, cut side up, and cool to room temperature.
  7. Peel a layer of cabbage. With the stems facing up, trim the thicker stems with a paring knife so the leaves can roll up more easily. With the stem side pointing towards you, place a few tablespoons of stuffing on the bottom of the leaf.
  8. Roll up so that the filling is covered with a single layer of cabbage. Fold the sides over and roll all the way up.
  9. Place cabbage rolls seam-side down in a 9×13-inch (23×33 cm) baking pan, then repeat with remaining filling.
  10. Spoon remaining tomato sauce over cabbage rolls.
  11. Cover the plate tightly with foil and bake for 45 minutes.
  12. enjoy!
