Ingredients

  • 1 cup water
  • 1 head green cabbage
  • 1 lb extra-lean ground beef
  • 1/2 cup dry white rice
  • 1 onion, finely diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp each salt & pepper
  • 1 (697)mL jar pasta sauce
  • 1 cup beef broth

Instructions

  • Add 1 cup water and the whole head of cabbage to the Instant Pot. Place lid on Instant Pot and make sure valve is set to seal. Press the pressure cook button and set to high, then cook for 1 minute. Make sure to deselect the "keep warm" setting.
  • Meanwhile, mix ground beef together in a large bowl with rice, onion, garlic, egg, paprika, salt and pepper.
  • Do a quick release of the pressure on the Instant Pot by flicking the switch at the top with a spoon. Open the lid when pressure gauge has dropped and the lid opens easily. Remove head of cabbage and drain liquid.
  • Unwrap 8-10 outermost leaves from the cabbage, then add beef broth and jar of pasta sauce to the bottom of Instant Pot in that order (broth first). Do not stir.
  • Add meat mixture to cabbage leaves, folding up and holding in place with toothpicks if needed. Add cabbage rolls to Instant Pot, then place lid on Instant Pot and make sure valve is set to seal. Press the pressure cook button and set to high, then cook for 20 minutes.
  • Let it do a natural pressure release, then serve cabbage rolls and enjoy!
