    Stuffed cabbage rolls are a popular dish in Eastern Europe and are a great comfort food in autumn and winter. You can substitute fresh garlic for powdered if you like.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 6 

    • 1 medium head cabbage
    • water to cover
    • 500g beef mince
    • 1 cup (155g) cooked rice
    • garlic powder to taste
    • 1 egg
    • 1 1/2 cups (375ml) tomato juice
    • 1 tablespoon vinegar
    • 1 tablespoon white sugar
    • water to cover

    Directions
    Preparation:30min  ›  Cook:1hour  ›  Ready in:1hour30min 

    1. Place the head of cabbage in a large pot over high heat and add water to cover. Boil cabbage for 15 minutes or until it is pliable and soft. Drain and allow to cool completely. Remove the hard outer vein from the leaves.
    2. In a separate large bowl, combine the beef, rice, garlic powder and the egg, mixing well. Place a small amount, about the size of your palm, into the centre of a cabbage leaf and fold leaf over, tucking in the sides of the leaf to keep meat mixture inside.
    3. Pile up the filled leaves in a large pot, putting the larger leaves on the bottom. Add the tomato juice, vinegar and sugar and enough water to cover. Simmer over medium low heat for about an hour. (Note: Keep an eye on them, making sure the bottom of leaves do not burn.)

    GREAT RECIPE JUST LIKE GRANDMA GOLUB'S. INSTEAD OF BOILING CABBAGE IT IS MUCH EASIER IF YOU PLACE THE CABBAGE HEAD IN THE FREEZER LET IT FREEZE THEN TAKE OUT AND LET THAW. THE LEAVES PULL OFF WITH EASE THEN STUFF.  -  27 Nov 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    With a few twists (used fresh garlic, added 1 tsp sea salt to meat mixture, used spaghetti sauce instead of tomato juice, and baked at 350 for 1 1/2 hours)this turned out scrumptious. This is a fun recipe to experiment with--you are pretty much guaranteed a good result. The perfect comfort food for the fall and winter. Great as leftovers!  -  30 Oct 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    This was a great recipe, thank you for sharing it. However, i added garlic salt, fresh green pepper, and fresh tomato to the meat. Next time i will add some ground sausage. I also baked it at 350 for 1-1/2 hrs. instead of cooking it on stove top.  -  27 Aug 2000  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
