Today we found a pretty interesting recipe called, “Cabbage Tamales.” The author states that it is a combo of German and Mexican food that’s very good. It can be prepped in under 30 minutes and ready in just a couple hours. Try it and let us know!


  • 8 cabbage leaves
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 1/2 cups uncooked white rice
  • 2 (6.5 ounce) cans tomato sauce
  • 3 teaspoons New Mexico red chile powder
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup chopped onions
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 (10 ounce) cans diced tomatoes with green chile peppers


  1. Freeze the cabbage leaves or blanch them for about 3 minutes in a large pot of boiling water to soften.
  2. Place the ground beef, rice, tomato sauce, chile powder, garlic, onion, salt, and black pepper in a bowl. Mix with your hands until combined. Divide the meat mixture into 8 portions and place the meat on the softened cabbage leaves. Roll the leaves up to form logs and tuck the edges under the logs.
  3. Place the tamales into a pressure cooker or slow cooker. Pour diced tomatoes with green chiles over tamales.
  4. To cook tamales in a pressure cooker: seal the lid of the pressure cooker and bring it up to full pressure. Reduce the heat to low, maintaining full pressure, and cook for 1 hour. Use the quick-release function or allow the pressure to reduce naturally.
  5. To cook tamales in a slow cooker: place the lid on the slow cooker and set it on High. Cook the tamales for 4 hours.
  6. Enjoy!
