12 to 15 large cabbage leaves
1 pound lean ground beef
2 Brats, skin removed and crumbled
1 cup cooked rice
1/2 onion diced
3 or 4 cloves garlic finely chopped
1 lg. container V-8 juice
2 10 oz. cans Rotel
To taste salt
To taste pepper
Wash cabbage leaves. Boil 4 cups water. Turn heat off. Soak leaves in water for 5 minutes. Remove, drain, and cool. (soak in water as needed to just make plyable for rolling).
Cook ground beef and brats about halfway just to render grease, drain.
Combine all ingredients except V-8 juice and rotel. Place 2 tablespoons of mixture on each leaf and roll firmly (insert tooth pick to hold together). Stack in Crock-Pot. Pour V-8 juice and Rotel over stuffed cabbage (you can add more V8 or a little water to make sure all is covered.) Cover and cook on Low for 8 t o 10 hours.
