  • Make rice so it is precooked, use your Instant Pot to make it (2 cups). Remove core from cabbage and gently remove the largest outside leaves off, boil for about 3 minutes just so they soften. 
  • Turn your Instant Pot on to the saute mode and add sausage and ground beef. Add diced onion and seasoning salt if you want to add that.
  • Mix in cooked rice and tomato or spaghetti sauce.
  • Lay cabbage leaves out on a large surface and stuff with meat and rice mixture. 
  • Fold the ends of the cabbage leaves over and roll up. Place in a springform pan or oven-safe dish that will fit in the Instant Pot (6"-7" dishes fit in my 6 qt.), with the folded side of the rolls down. 
  • Rinse out pot from meat mixture. Add 1 ½ cups of water to the inner pot of the Instant Pot, then a trivet goes in too. Pour diced tomatoes over the cabbage rolls, place the dish on trivet in the Instant Pot. 
  • Close the lid of the Instant Pot and turn to sealing position. Set for a manual high-pressure time of 15 minutes. 
  • When the time has finished, allow for a natural release. Serve with additional rice if desired.
