Stuffed Cabbage Rolls Recipe
November 28, 2016 - 4 Comments
When I think about stuffed cabbage rolls recipe, there is only one recipe I can think off. Polish stuffed cabbage rolls aka “Golabki” is by far the best, stuffed cabbage recipe I have tried in my entire life.
2.5-pound cabbage – made me about ten stuffed cabbage rolls. Note that you can not use all the leaves to make cabbage rolls due to leaves getting smaller in size, but nor worries. I use the smaller leaves for a variety of different recipes. I dice mine into medium size squares that go ideal for my cabbage soup recipe.
While cabbage was cooking, I was preparing cabbage rolls stuffing. It takes 1.5-pound of freshly ground pork, a bit over half a pound of mild Italian sausage, please not that casing needs to be removed. One medium onion (diced), 3/4 of a cup of white rice, two garlic cloves (diced), freshly ground pepper, salt, two eggs, salt, and pepper to season it all.
I cook the cabbage for about 45 minutes before i cut the cabbage leaves off. Leaves become soft enough and are ready for the pork stuffing.
After the leaves are pilled, we are ready to stuff them.
Here we go 🙂 Like I wrote at the beginning, I was able to make ten decent size stuffed cabbage rolls. I probably could make few more but didn’t want for them to be too small, and also I am due for my delicious cabbage soup, so that I can use the rest of the cabbage very soon. In the meantime, I diced the rest of the cabbage into small squares and put it in the freezer.
Please take a look at these lovely stuffed cabbage rolls 🙂 Transfer them to a large pot, place few single cabbage leaves on the bottom of the pot. Add the tomato sauce, bouillon cube, salt, pepper. I also add thinly sliced carrots just to add a bit of zing to it. Cook for about an hour.
Results are amazingly good! Garnish the roll with some chopped parsley and add a teaspoon of heavy cream. Serve with hearty piece of bread or over rice!
