Easy Cabbage Roll Recipe

10 cabbage leaves
1 cup of white rice
2 cups of water
1 pound of lean ground beef
1 cup of dry bread crumbs
1 pinch of ground cinnamon
1 (28 ounce) can of whole peeled tomatoes, chopped
1 onion, diced
1 teaspoon of salt

1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
2. Bring a large pot of water to boil, add cabbage leaves and cook for 2 minutes. Drain.
3. Combine the rice and water in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes or until rice is tender. Remove from the heat and set aside.
4. In a large bowl, combine beef, bread crumbs, cinnamon, drained and chopped tomatoes, onion and salt; stir until well combined. Spoon equal amounts of beef mixture onto the center of each cabbage leaf. Place a spoonful of rice onto the beef. Roll up leaves, tucking in the edges, and seal with a toothpick. Wrap each roll in aluminum foil and place in a shallow baking dish.
5. Bake for 40 minutes, or until beef is cooked through.
