Directions:

 

FOR THE SAUCE

 

Step One: Preheat Oven and Prepare Sauce Filling

 

Preheat oven to 350°. In a large deep skillet (or large pot) over medium heat, heat oil. Add onion and cook until soft, 5 minutes. Stir in tomato paste and garlic and cook until fragrant, 1 minute. Pour over tomatoes then add vinegar, sugar, and oregano.

 

 

Step Two: Cook the Sauce Filling

 

Lower heat to medium-low and simmer for 20 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

 

 

FOR THE ROLLS

 

Step One: Blanch the Cabbage Leaves

 

In a large pot of boiling water, blanch cabbage leaves until tender and flexible, about 1 minute.

 

 

Step Two: Make filling

 

In a large bowl, combine ground meats, 1 cup sauce, rice, bread crumbs, onion, and parsley. Season with salt and pepper.

 

 

Step Three: Prepare Tray for Baking

 

Spread a thin layer of sauce on the bottom of a large baking dish.

 

 

Step Four: Make the Rolls

 

Using a paring knife, cut out the hard triangular rib from each cabbage leaf. Place about ⅓ cup filling into one end of each leaf, then roll up, tucking in the sides as you roll. Place rolls seam side-down on top of sauce in baking dish. Spoon remaining sauce on top of cabbage rolls then cover dish with foil.
