Do you love cabbage rolls, but hate the tedious process of cooking, stuffing and rolling the cabbage leaves without breaking the leaves into 5 pieces!? That is so me! Then to have a complete meal in about 30 minutes is a huge bonus!
I gathered all my ingredients and prepped them then put them into the pressure cooker, set it for 20 minutes, left to pick the kids up from school and came home to steaming hot supper! Seriously, how easy is that!?
1 large onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 lb ground beef
1/2 lb ground pork
3/4 cup uncooked rice (I use brown rice, but have used white as well)
1 medium cabbage, core removed and diced into bite size pieces
1 (28 oz) can diced tomatoes, untrained
2 tbsp tomato paste
4 cups beef broth
1 1/2 cups V8 or other vegetable juice
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 tbsp onion powder
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp thyme
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1 bay leaf
Salt and pepper to taste
1 tbsp oil
Turn the pressure cooker on to the “brown” method.
Add 1 tbsp oil and the onions. Sauté about 3 minutes and add the garlic.
Then add in the ground pork and beef; brown. Once browned, drain the fat off the meat and put back into the pressure cooker.
Add the rest of the ingredients: rice, chopped cabbage, tomatoes, tomato paste, beef broth, V8/other veggie juice, and seasonings.
Stir together to mix well, put the lid on and seal the valve… Set for 20 minutes and walk away.
Go fix a drink, take this moment to take a potty break or pick the kids up from school and you’ll come back to deliciousness, but be warned… It’s going to be piping hot!!
