PORK AND RICE STUFFED CABBAGE

Recipe from Weight Watchers All Time Favorites
Hands-On Prep: 20 Min
Cook: 1 Hr 15 Min
Serves: 6
 

Ingredients

    • 6 large green cabbage leaves
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 1 onion, finely chopped
    • 3 garlic cloves, minced
    • 1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
    • 1 zucchini or yellow squash, finely chopped
    • 3/4 pound ground lean pork
    • 2 cups cooked brown rice
    • 2 egg whites, lightly beaten
    • 3/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
    • 1 (15-ounce) can tomato sauce
     

Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 350°P. Lightly spray a 7 x 11-inch baking dish with olive oil nonstick spray.

2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the cabbage and cook until tender, 3-4 minutes; drain in a colander. Rinse under cold running water, then drain again. Trim the thick ribs from the base of the leaves; set the leaves aside.

3. Meanwhile, to make the filling, heat the oil in a medium nonstick skillet set over medium-high heat. Add the onion, garlic, and Italian seasoning; cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 2 minutes. Add the zucchini or squash and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl; let cool 5 minutes. Add the pork, rice, egg whites, salt, and pepper; mix well.

4. Spread 1/4 cup of the tomato sauce in the bottom of the baking dish. Arrange the cabbage leaves on the work surface. Place a rounded 1/2 cupful of the filling in the center of each cabbage leaf. Fold the two sides of each leaf over the filling and roll up, jelly-roll style, starting at the base of the leaf. Place the rolls, seam side down, in the baking dish; pour the remaining tomato sauce on top. Bake until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of a roll registers 160°F, about 50 minutes.

Food Note: If you don't have cooked brown rice handy, a speedy alternative is to cook 1 (5¼-ounce) package of boil-in-the-bag brown rice according to the package directions. Let the rice cool slightly before combining it with the remaining filling ingredients in step 3.
