UNtraditional Cabbage Rolls

Sunday, September 07, 2008

4 or 5 cans of large tomato sauce 28 t0 32 oz
2 eggs
2 large onions
1 1/2 to 2 cups of rice
large head of cabbage
garlic powder
garlic cloves
3 to 4 lbs of hamburger

I don’t us a recipe to make this its a little of this and a little of that those of you that like to experiment know what I mean but I tried to write it to the best of my recollection

I usually cook a lot of it because I don’t make it that often because it’s messy

First I use the really big cans of sauce 28 or 32 oz I Sautee onions and garlic and add a little basil and oregano, garlic powder then add cans of sauce 4 or 5 and a little sugar to taste I like it on the sweet side but it’s a matter of taste. Then cook it down till its thick

In the mean time take a large head of cabbage cut the core out the best you can and boil

It till you can peel the leaves off I cool it under cold water first.

Take three to four lbs of Hamburger I don’t like a lot of rice so I use a cup and a half to two cups add two eggs and 3/4 teaspoon of cinnamon ¼ tsp dry ginger then you mix really well

Take you cabbage leaves put the Hamburger mixture in and roll it up and place rolled side

Down in large pan I that has enough room to cover with sauce fill and roll each one I like mine large and place in order then cover with sauce and cook one and a half to two hours till tender

In a 350 degree oven

    Yup Diane...this is very similar to my recipe. I'm like you tho, I don'y make it often because it is a lot of work. I order them cheap enough from the Polish ladies when I see them on sale at the Polish church. Actually better than mine

    Lazy Glombki
    1 large head of cabbage ( chopped coarsly, & par boiled until tender) 10-15
    1 large onion,( diced and sauteed with butter spray & 4-6 T I can't beleive it's not butter.
    1 1/2 lbs. hamburg.
    1-2 c. rice, cooked ( not too mushy) just a little tender. about 4 min. less than directions.
    2 cans of campbell's tomatoe soup or 2 c. tomatoe juice. or half soup,and half juice.

    Layer 1/2 cabbage in a 9x13 pan, mix raw hamburg, salt & pepper to taste, sauteed onion,
    cooked rice. Mix well. Put hamburg and rice mix, on top of layered cabbage. Use
    remaining cabbage, to top hamburg & rice. Pour tomatoe soup or juice on top over
    of cabbage! If you are using soup dilute with tomatoe juice or water to thin out.
    Cover tightly with foil, bake 375, for about 1 1/2 hours. Hamburg will cook, up nicely.
    This recipe, is so tasty! I'm not too sure, on the cals. or fats, or carbs. Makes about 10-12
    med. servings. Freezes well! Great for the Fall. You just put everything together, and you
    don't have to fill, the cabbage, or roll. Less time and taste great. Enjoy!

    This recipe can be doubled..
