  1. In a large bowl, combine the ground beef, sausage, chopped onion, rice, water, and salt and pepper.
  2. Bring a large pot of water a boil. Separate 12 to 15 large cabbage leaves from the head, and place in boiling water. Boil until soft, approximately 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from water, and set aside.
  3. Into the center of each leaf, place a small amount of the meat mixture. Fold in the sides, and roll up from the bottom. Secure with a toothpick.
  4. Place a layer of sauerkraut in the bottom of a large pot. Arrange cabbage rolls in a single layer over the sauerkraut. Cover with remaining sauerkraut. Pour in enough water to cover the rolls. Bring to a boil, lower heat, and simmer for 90 minutes.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.
