Louisiana Stuffed Cabbage Heads

Louisiana Stuffed Cabbage Heads


  • 4 Heads cabbage
  • 1 cup uncooked rice
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground chuck hamburger meat
  • 3/4 cup chopped celery
  • 2/3 cup chopped bell pepper
  • 2 cups chopped white onion
  • 1 bouillon cube - preferably chicken
  • Cayenne pepper to taste (optional)
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  1. Wash and take the core out of the cabbage, setting aside any loose leaves. Place whole cabbage heads in large roaster and cover with water. Add 4 tablespoons salt. Cook until the inside is firm, and the outside is tender. Remove the cabbage heads and let cool.
  2. Cook 1 cup rice according to package directions, and set aside.
  3. In a large skillet add ground chuck and chopped vegetables, until browned well, being careful to not burn. Add rice and salt and pepper to taste. Add cayenne pepper if desired.
  4. Place the loose cabbage leaves you saved earlier in the bottom of a large roasting pan, then arrange then cabbage heads on top of the leaves. Stuff cabbage with rice mixture. (You may need to cut larger holes in the head to add as much stuffing as you can.) Dissolve chicken bouillon cube in 1 cup boiling water and pour into the bottom of the roaster.
  5. Bake covered in a 400 degree oven for 45 minutes.
