Ingredients:  
1 lb. ground beef or turkey
1 egg
¼ cup uncooked rice
1 onion, grated
1 carrot, grated
¼ tsp. salt
2 cups tomato sauce
½ cup water
½ cup brown sugar
¼ cup vinegar
10 to 20 cabbage leaves

Directions:
Directions:
In a bowl, mix together meat, egg, rice, grated onion, grated carrot and salt. Set aside. For the sauce, mix tomato sauce with ½ cup of water, put into large pot. Add the brown sugar and vinegar. Stir. Form the meat mixture into medium-sized meatballs. Take a cabbage leaf, fill with a meatball. Tuck in the ends securely, and place into sauce gently. Continue until all meat is finished. Cook on moderate heat covered for 30 minutes. Reduce heat and simmer for at least 40 minutes. I usually cook it longer. Serves 5.

TIP: Cut out core of cabbage, discard the core, and put the cabbage in a plastic baggie with a little water. Microwave for about 4 or 5 minutes. If still not soft continue in microwave. Softening the leaves and cutting out the core will help you when you fill the leaves with meat and tuck the ends under. Figure 1 lb. beef/turkey to 2 to 3 cabbages.

Personal Notes:
This recipe is very special to me. Many years ago my family would all go to my Aunt Jay and Uncle Leon’s house for dinner. The Sweet and Sour Cabbage Rolls were always my favorite. One day I asked my Aunt if I could have the recipe. I wrote it down!! I have passed it on to other members of the family and everyone loves this recipe. It not only tastes good, but it reminds me of my Aunt and how special she was to me. I hope you and your family enjoy it as much as my family does.
