Cooked or Raw

too vague of instructions for me,,,, after you boil cabbage what do you do with the cabbage? take off the leaves? when you mix the rice hamburger and juice, is that raw hamburger and uncooked rice or precooked hamburger and cooked rice? Won't it burn at 425 for TWO hours? I want so much to make this recipe. Just need some clarifications on the recipe. Thank you.

Hi, Dea. To answer your questions: Yes, after the cabbage is cooked you would tear off the leaves. Use only those big enough to stuff. When you get close to the core, the leaves will be too small. Yes, the hamburger and rice are both uncooked. The oven temperature and time are correct.

saltsands, I am making this

saltsands, I am making this vegan too by substituting the meat with vegan crumbles and not using sausage. I might add raisons. What a coincidence two vegans commented.

I will be making this vegan!
