CRAZY Yummy Cabbage Rolls - Easy

Some of you are probably thinking HOW can she say yummy and cabbage in the same sentence?

Well, these my friends are SO GOOD!

Pressure or Slow Cooker Meat Cabbage Rolls!

Not only are they very tasty, they look all fancy too (and they were easy!!)

I have a very sweet friend that I helped virtually decorate her mountain cabin (which I would love to show you guys sometime!!) but as a gift for doing that, she sent me an Instant Pot pressure cooker.

 Click on the image and check out the reviews!!!

WOW, I haven't ever experienced cooking with a pressure cooker before and let me tell you, somewhat life changing! You can cook FROZEN chicken breasts (or entire chickens) to juicy perfection in 15 minutes! Things that I would have to cook in the slow cooker for HOURS is done in under 30.

So, these cute little things took 18 minutes in the pressure cooker, but you could also use your slow cooker on low for 9 hours or high for 5 hours. (see how handy the pressure cooker can be!)

So here is what you do:

Cut the core out of a LARGE cabbage.
Steam (boil) it in a pot of water for 5-8 minutes.
Remove the cabbage head, pull off the outside leaves that come off easily
Boil again and repeat pulling off leaves that come off easily till the whole veggie is dismantled.

Now you have your wraps

In a bowl combine: 
(for the inside of the wraps)

1 cup pre-cooked rice
1 1/2 - 2 lbs Raw ground beef, sausage or turkey
1 egg
2 shredded carrots
1/2 c chopped onion
1 can green chili's
minced garlic
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
(I added a dash of cinnamon/sugar too as I did it with sausage and wanted a bit of a sweet spicy thing going on)

MIX it all up.

In a saucepan:
 (for the top of the rolls)

cook 1/2 c chopped onions in some butter
add minced garlic
1 can diced tomatoes
1 small can tomato sauce
3 Tbsp tomato paste
1/4 c white vinegar
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce

You can chop up some of your leftover cabbage pieces and add to the sauce also.

At the VERY end you can take out the rolls and add 1 tbsp cornstarch with 2 tbsp cold water to thicken up the sauce.

You should be able to make at least 12 wraps.

Take your cabbage leaf, add about 1/4 cup of the meat mixture to one end of the cabbage, turn edges in and ROLL up the cabbage.

Set 6 rolls on the bottom of the pressure cooker, pour some of the sauce over them.

Layer next set of rolls on top and pour the rest of the sauce over the top.

(if you are using the pressure cooker, add about 1/2 c additional water to the pot for the pressure/steam to build up correctly)

Either pressure cook this for 18 minutes OR slow cook them for 5 hours on high or 9 hours on low.  If using the pressure cooker, after the 18 minutes, let it sit for another 15 minutes and then quick release any left over steam.

Server hot! Set on the plate and spoon the sauce over the rolls.

I think pairing this up with a green vegetable or a salad is perfect.  Guest will think this took you forever as it really does look and taste gourmet!

Some of the other things I have cooked in my pressure cooker is YOGURT! Seriously, I pretty much just pushed a button and at the end strained it to get THIS! It's by far the easiest way to make yogurt hands down.  You can check out my Pinterest Board for all the great recipes I've pinned for this cooker.
