    Fill 5- to 6-quart Dutch oven half full of water. Heat to boiling. Place whole cabbage in water, core side down. Cover; cook 2 to 3 minutes, turning over once, or until leaves can be removed from head. With slotted spoon remove cabbage from water. With tongs, carefully remove 6 leaves from head. Save remaining head of cabbage for later use. Shave or trim part of the thick rib from each leaf. Return leaves to water; cook 2 to 3 minutes or until wilted.

    In medium bowl, mix ground beef, uncooked rice, 1/3 cup milk, the egg, Worcestershire sauce, 1/4 teaspoon of the salt and 1/8 teaspoon of the pepper. Spoon about 1/3 cup of the ground beef mixture on thick end of each cabbage leaf. Roll up, tucking sides in. Place filled cabbage leaves in 12-inch skillet, seam side down. Add broth and caraway seed. Cover; heat to boiling. Reduce heat; simmer 25 to 30 minutes or until thermometer inserted in center of ground beef mixture reads 160°F.

Serve sauce over cabbage rolls; sprinkle with bacon.

Expert Tips

  • Shaving part of the thick rib from each cabbage leaf makes it easier to shape the roll.
  • Use the rest of the head of cabbage to make coleslaw. Just cut into fine shreds and mix with your favorite coleslaw dressing.
