Stuffed Pistachio Cabbage Rolls


1 head cabbage



1 lb ground beef or pork

1 egg

½ cup   rice

½ cup   coarsely chopped pistachio

1 tbsp  Worcestershire sauce

1 tbsp  ketchup

½ tsp salt

¼ tsp black pepper



1 14-oz can tomato sauce

½ cup   apple cider vinegar

1 tsp salt

2 tsp    sugar


Remove core from cabbage. Place it in a large pot of boiling water and let it simmer for 10 – 12 minutes. Carefully remove the cabbage and let it cool off for 15 – 20 minutes. Remove cabbage leaves, one at a time. Cut out the tough stem to make the leaf more pliable.

Mix all filling ingredients together. Place about ¼ cup meat mixture in a cabbage leaf and roll it up like folding an egg roll. Repeat with remaining meat mixture and cabbage leaves. Place all cabbage rolls in a dutch oven. 

Combine all sauce ingredients in a large bowl. Pour over cabbage bundles. Cook over medium heat for 1 hour.
