  3. Place 1/4-cup meat mixture in a long meatball shape in the center of each leaf.
  4. Fold in sides and roll ends over meat.
  5. Place carefully in pot, pour tomato juice over rolls and cook on low for 1 hour.
  6. Try to disturb cooking cabbage rolls as little as possible. If you feel you must mix cooking cabbage rolls, do so very carefully.
  7. Freeze entire mixture in plastic container

Directions for preparing frozen meal:

Allow time to defrost on counter or in refrigerator. You may defrost in microwave, but do so very slowly. Carefully transfer defrosted mixture into large pot and bring to a simmer until rolls are cooked all the way through.
