Hi, I am looking for the stuffed peppers that are filled with hamburger and rice with tomato sauce. If you have this recipe I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you.

Got a great recipe for stuffed cabbage rolls that I would think would be just as good for green peppers. If you'd like, I'd be happy to share that.

Here you go! It's the "recipe" that my Mom always used. She's one of those "dump & dash" cooks who VERY rarely uses a recipe so I decided to literally sit her down and write down EVERYTHING she put in(she "measures" by handfuls,pinches etc) Of course, the kicker was that she doesn't ever measure things so I had to do that before she mixed it all together so I could get a good idea what I needed to do when I made it. She's been doing it that way for many years so she really laughed at me HARD about all this. LOL. The sauce is absolutely the KEY, I do believe.

Stuffed Cabbage Rolls(about 8 servings)
1 large head cabbage 1 lb.ground chuck
1/2 c. uncooked rice(Minute rice is best)
1 grated onion 2 eggs
1 tsp. salt 1/4 tsp pepper
1 large onion, sliced
2(8oz) cans tomato sauce
1 (1lb,13oz) cans tomatoes
Juice of 2 lemons(Mom INSISTS on fresh/but I cheat
1 tsp salt 1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 cup brown sugar

To make cabbage roll:

Remove about 12 large leaves from cabbage- Trim off the thick part of each leaf; Let stand in boiling water for a few minutes so that the leaves will be easy to roll.
Combine ground chuck, rice, grated onion,eggs 1 tsp salt & 1/4 tsp pepper; Place a mound of this mixture in the cup part of each cabbage leaf; Fold over the sides of the leaf to form roll; I secure it with a toothpick if necessary. Place a few remaining cabbage leaves in the bottom of the large baking pan; Alternate ayers of the stuffed cabbage rolls, seam side down, with the sliced onions in the pan;put aside to make sauce

To make sauce:

In saucepan, combine tomato sauce, tomatoes(I cut them up a little), lemon juice, remaining salt & pepper; Bring this sauce to a boil, then pour over the cabbage rolls

Sprinkle with brown sugar; Cover with foil and bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for about one hour; then remove foil cover and bake for another 1/2 hour or until cabbage is tender and the meat is done

Hope you enjoy!
