1 head of green cabbage, cored

1 lb. extra-lean venison burger
1/4 cup yellow onion, minced
2 garlic cloves, minced
¼ cup red bell pepper, minced
1-1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
½ teaspoon Italian herb seasoning blend
½ teaspoon dry mustard
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
½ teaspoon worcestershire sauce
3 tablespoons ketchup
1 cup cooked white rice
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup milk
Hot out of the oven...

1 (14.5 oz. can) italian diced tomatoes, drained
2 (14.5 oz. cans) tomato sauce
½ teaspoon Italian herb seasoning blend
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 teaspoons worcestershire sauce

2 tablespoons parsley
½ cup mozzarella cheese


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a 9”x13” baking dish sprayed with oil, and set aside.

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil, core the cabbage with a paring knife and boil it for 10 minutes to tenderize the leaves for rolling up cabbage rolls; drain in a colander, pat dry, and set aside.

In large skillet, brown the venison burger over medium-high heat, until ¾ done. Add the onion, garlic, red bell pepper and cook for 3 minutes, and add remaining ingredients, except milk and eggs. Beat the egg with the milk, and add to mixture while stirring. Place 1/4 cup of meat mixture in center of each cabbage leaf (overlapping leaves, if need be), roll up while tucking in ends. Place rolls in prepared baking dish seam side down.

In a medium bowl, mix together all the sauce ingredients, and pour over cabbage rolls. Cover baking dish with foil, and bake for 50 minutes. Uncover and add the parsley and cheese, and recover and bake for 10 minutes longer, then serve. – Enjoy!


Tip: I like to serve these venison cabbage rolls with toasted baguettes to sop up the sauce.
