1/3 head cabbage, about 8 whole leaves,
pound uncooked lean ground beef,
cup uncooked white rice,
cup water,
1/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs,
1 medium carrot, peeled and grated,
1 medium onion, finely chopped,
1 medium garlic clove, minced,
1 large egg white,
tsp table salt,
1/4 tsp black pepper,
2 tsp olive oil,
29oz canned diced tomatoes, with basil, garlic and oregano.

Wrap cabbage leaves in plastic wrap or moist towels and microwave on HIGH for 2 minutes, or until soft. Cut off the thickest, white portion of the spine of each leaf to make leaves pliable and easy to fold; set aside. Combine beef, rice, water, bread crumbs, carrot, onion, garlic, egg white, salt and pepper in large bowl; mix well. Spoon about 1/4 cup of beef mixture onto center of each leaf. Fold up bottom of leaf to cover filling, tuck in sides and then continue rolling to make loose rolls. Heat oil in a large stockpot over medium-high heat; add rolls and saute until golden brown on all sides, turning frequently, about 5 minutes. Add tomatoes and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook until cooked through, checking pot every 15 minutes and stirring to prevent sticking, about 1 hour.
