Recipe by Lena Abraham
For the Cabbage Wraps:

  • 4 large green cabbage leaves (from 1 head)
  • 1 LB of ground beef (or ground turkey)
  • Kosher salt (or sea salt)
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 slices of cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced into rounds
  • 1 medium tomato
  • sliced pickle chips for serving

For the sauce (optional):

  • 2 tbsp. mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp. Dijon mustard 
  • 1 tsp. red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper


1. In a large pot of boiling water, use tongs to dip cabbage leaves in water for 30 seconds to blanch. Place a paper towel lined plate to dry.

2. Make sauce: In a medium bowl, combine mayonnaise, mustard, vinegar, and garlic powder. Season with salt and pepper and whisk until smooth.

3. Make burgers: Form ground beef (turkey) into 4 patties: season both sides with salt and pepper. Heat large skillet over medium-high heat. Add patties and cook until burgers are seared on the bottom, 4 to 6 minutes. Flip burgers and cook until cooked through to your liking (4 to 6 minutes for medium), adding cheese during the last minute of cooking.

4. Assemble burgers: Place burger patty on the edge of a cabbage lead where the thickest part of the stem is. Top with onion, tomato, and pickles. Fold opposite end of cabbage leaf up over burger, then fold one side of cabbage leaf over burger and roll until burger is wrapped.
