Holishkes (Stuffed Cabbage)

Home » Recipe Swap » Holishkes (Stuffed Cabbage)

Serves 5 to 6


  • 14 to 16 large cabbage leaves
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 Manischewitz® Matzo, broken**
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup sugar*
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 can Manischewitz® Tomato Mushroom Sauce


Remove leaves from large head of cabbage carefully. Place in large pot, cover with boiling water and simmer 5 minutes. Drain. Soak broken matzo in the 1/2 cup water until soft. Combine this mixture with ground meat and egg. Place a heaping tablespoon of this mixture in the center of each cabbage leaf. Fold in the sides to cover meat; roll. Place cabbage rolls in a large saucepan with open sides down. Combine remaining ingredients and pour over cabbage rolls. Cover; bring to a boil and then reduce heat. Simmer about 1 1/2 hours, basting occasionally.

* For sugarless Holishkes, omit the sugar and substitute 16 Sucary tablets.

** 3/4 cup matzo farfel may be used instead.
