On the Menu Today~
Stuffed Cabbage Rolls

Dia dhuit~
Stuffed Cabbage Rolls are perfect for
St Patty's Day or Any day~


This is one of our most requested recipes.
Sauerkraut and lemon zest add that extra something special.

The filling is also great to stuff several of our favorites:
Stuffed Green Peppers, Stuffed Tomatoes or Stuffed Zucchini.


Stuffed Cabbage Rolls

Ingredients
  • 16 large cabbage leaves
  • 2 pounds ground beef, ground turkey or ground pork (a combination of all three can be used)
  • 1 cup chopped onions
  • 2 cups cooked white rice
  • 1 egg slightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons snipped fresh parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 (32 oz) jar sauerkraut, rinsed and drained
  • 2 (15 oz) cans tomato sauce
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 4 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
Cooking Directions
  1. Trim veins from cabbage leaves. Immerse leaves, four at a time, into boiling water. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes or just until leaves are limp. Carefully remove leaves with tongs or a slotted spoon. Drain well.
  2. For filling: In a large skillet, over medium heat, cook ground meat and onion until meat is browned; drain off fat. In a medium bowl combine cooked meat mixture, cooked rice, egg, parsley, salt, 1 cup sauerkraut, 1-15 oz can tomato sauce, tomato paste, water, brown sugar, 2 teaspoons lemon juice, lemon zest, allspice and pepper. Mix well.
  3. Lightly grease 3-quart rectangle baking dish. Mix together 1-15 oz can tomato sauce, rest of sauerkraut, 2 teaspoons lemon juice, and 2 tablespoons snipped fresh parsley. Mix together well and pour into prepared baking dish.
  4. Place about 1/3 cup of the filling in the center of each cabbage leaf: fold in sides. Staring at an unfolded edge, carefully roll each leaf, making sure folded sides are tucked into the roll. Arrange cabbage rolls on sauerkraut mixture in baking dish. Sprinkle any left over meat mixture over cabbage rolls.
  5. Bake, covered, in a 350ยบ oven about 45 minutes. Remove foil, bake an additional 15 minutes or until heated through.

  9. These look so good. Great pictures! We always make cabbage something around St Patrick's Day. I never thought to use the lemon juice/zest. That would help brighten the flavor.

    We're having a party at Tumbleweed Contessa hope you can bring these over. http://www.tumbleweedcontessa.com/blog/whatd-you-do-this-weekend-6/

    Top o' the morning to you!
