Ingredients:  
Ingredients:  
1 large head of cabbage
1 lb of ground round beef
1 lb of Bob Evans sausage
1 small chopped fine onion
1/2 cup of uncooked rice
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 jar of canned tomatoes
1 cup of tomato sauce
1/2 tsp baking soda

Directions:
Directions:
Mix all ingredients and raw meat together with your hands in a large bowl. Form small log-like shapes (about 3 inches long/1 inch high in size). Take layer of outer leaves off of the cabbage and core the cabbage. Place the head of cabbage in a large bowl with an inch of salted water. Place the head of cabbage upside down so the hole is in the water. Cover with saran wrap and microwave on high for about 5 minutes or until the plastic starts to bubble and microwave another 5 minutes on half the power level. Remove the soft cabbage leaves off the head one by one, leaving them whole. After you remove a couple of layers, you will need to microwave the cabbage head again to get the other layers soft enough to remove. Once the leaves are removed, place the log mixture in the center of one leave and wrap and fold under to secure the meat. Once they are all wrapped and folded, place them in a roaster pan or a large baking dish. Cover them with a large can of tomatoes or 1 jar of canned tomatoes with tomato sauce and baking soda mixed in. Bake for 60-90 minutes at 350.

Personal Notes:
The stuffed peppers recipe is very similar and you can cook them side by side in one pan if you wish! You can also line the top with pork steaks (salted and peppered); cover and simmer.
