Directions:
Parboil cabbage in a large pot, removing leaves as they fall off into the water and are tender. Cook until all leaves are tender, but not ripping apart, usually 15. Run under cold water and drain. Cut the thick membrane off back of each leaf. While cabbage is cooking saute onion in olive oil. Add onion to uncooked meat, seasonings, and rice. Spoon 2-3 T of meat mixture into each leaf and roll leaf up and over meat. You can use string or toothpicks to keep the cabbage rolls together. Place cabbage rolls into a large pot or electric skillet and cover with tomato sauce mixture. Cook on medium heat x 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Can continue to simmer on low until ready to eat.
