How does your family feel about cabbage? My buddy, Brandi, from Aunt Bee’s Recipes, has a recipe for Southern Fried Cabbage that her family loves, and it’s become a regular internet sensation – one of her top posts of all times.
These cabbage rolls do take a little bit of time, but they are so worth it! Super tasty, and a pretty presentation that is also an economical meal.
I cut the bottom off of the head of cabbage and drop it in a pot of boiling water to help the leaves separate easier. I used to try to take them off of the uncooked head, and it seemed they always ripped on me. As I am making my meatballs, I take each leaf off, as they loosen in the pot, with a set of tongs. Be carful — they are hot!
Place the prepared meatball at the bottom of the leaf (where the stem would be) fold the sides inward, and roll from the bottom up. Place seam side down in a baking dish.
Pour tomato sauce over the top of the rolls, cover and bake for about 90 minutes.
Dinner is served. No need for anything else ..it’s all right here, all in one pot!
