    Stuffed Cabbage Rolls (Gluten-Free)

    Reviewed and edited by a celiac disease expert.

    Celiac.com 12/23/2014 - I confess to being a bit picky about cabbage. I like it, but I tend to be a bit finicky about how it is prepared. When I saw these at a party recently, I was reluctant to give them a try. Once I did, I realized I had been totally wrong. They were delicious, and they disappeared quickly, as people realized how good they were.

    Ingredients:

    • ¼ cup chicken broth
    • ¼ cup uncooked white rice
    • 8 Savoy cabbage leaves
    • 1 pound lean ground beef
    • ¼ cup chopped onion
    • 2 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1 egg, slightly beaten
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
    • 1¼ cups creamy tomato soup (See recipe here)

    Directions:
    In a medium saucepan, bring water to a boil. Add rice and stir. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 20 minutes.

    Bring a large, wide saucepan of lightly salted water to a boil. Add cabbage leaves and cook for 2 to 4 minutes or until softened; drain. 

    In a medium mixing bowl, combine the ground beef, 1 cup cooked rice, onion, egg, salt and pepper, along with 2 tablespoons of tomato soup. Mix thoroughly.

    Divide the beef mixture evenly among the cabbage leaves. Roll and secure them with toothpicks or string.

    In a large skillet over medium heat, place the cabbage rolls and pour the remaining tomato soup over the top.

    Cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for about 40 minutes, stirring and basting with the liquid often.

    We use ground venison instead of beef. We do not cook the rice ahead of time. Because the venison is so lean we add an entire jar of gluten-free salsa to the rice/venison mixture before rolling the cabbage rolls. We stack the rolls in a dutch oven and pour in a large can of tomato juice.
