Savoy Cabbage Rolls

Prep Time: 20 minutes | Cook Time: 20 minutes | Serves 20

rolls 1 medium head savoy cabbage

3 cups water, divided

1/2 pound ground beef

1 cup long-grain rice

1 small red bell pepper, seeded and minced

1 medium onion, peeled and diced

1 cup beef broth

1 tablespoon olive oil

2 tablespoons minced fresh mint

1 teaspoon dried tarragon

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

2 tablespoons lemon juice

Wash the cabbage. Remove the large outer leaves and set aside. Remove remaining cabbage leaves and place them in the Instant Pot.

Pour in 1 cup water. Lock lid. Press the Steam button and adjust time to 1 minute. Press the Pressure button to change the pressure to Low.

When the timer beeps, quick-release the pressure until float valve drops and then unlock lid. Drain the cabbage leaves in a colander and then move them to a cotton towel.

In a medium mixing bowl, add the ground beef, rice, bell pepper, onion, broth, olive oil, mint, tarragon, salt, and pepper. Stir to combine.

Place the reserved (uncooked) cabbage leaves on the bottom of the Instant Pot. Remove the stem running down the center of each steamed cabbage leaf and tear each leaf in half lengthwise.

Place 1 tablespoon of the ground beef mixture in the center of each cabbage piece. Loosely fold the sides of the leaf over the filling and then fold the top and bottom of the leaf over the folded sides.

As you complete them, place each stuffed cabbage leaf in the Instant Pot. Pour 2 cups water and the lemon juice over the stuffed cabbage rolls. Lock lid.

Press the Manual button and adjust time to 15 minutes. When timer beeps, let pressure release naturally for 10 minutes.

Quick-release any additional pressure until float valve drops and then unlock lid. Carefully move the stuffed cabbage rolls to a serving platter. Serve warm.
