Stuffed Cabbage

Another of my mother’s recipes that should not be lost.

12 cabbage leaves, approximately
1 pound meat loaf mix (a third veal, beef, and pork)
1/4 cup rice, uncooked
1 egg
1  8 ounce can tomato sauce
1  8 ounce can sauerkraut, rinsed
1 onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
salt and pepper to taste
water or stock
oil for sautéing

Meat mixture
Mix meat, egg, rice, a splash of tomato sauce, salt and pepper, until well combined
set aside

Prepare cabbage
remove spine from leaves
put a scant 1/4 of meat mixture onto each leaf
roll egg-roll style
set aside
(depending on the thickness of the cabbage leaves, they may have to be par boiled to soften, for ease of rolling)

In a large pot brown onion, garlic, and some leftover chopped cabbage
add sauerkraut and tomato sauce
salt and pepper
cook down for a few minutes
remove half from pot

Layer stuffed cabbages over sauerkraut/onion mixture
top stuffed cabbage with sauerkraut/onion mixture that was set aside
cook for approximately 1 1/2 hours on stove top, or 45 minutes in a pressure cooker
add 1/2 to 3/4 cup of water to avoid scorching

Makes approximately 12

#audreycancook Another #leftover creation, skillet #appletart, a #smallbatch #audreycancook Skillet chicken #enchiladas a #smallbatch.  A great recipe for clearing out the fridge. On the blog soon. #audreycancook I've been working on a recipe for #icecream made without a machine. They're all over the web. I'm still not convinced, it's overly sweet and the texture is like frozen mousse. #audreycancook
