This was an easy way to delicious cabbage rolls. But here's what to do different next time to avoid some major problems: Use fattier ground meat (using dry rice in the meat sucks up any moisture and drys out the meat.) Microwave your cabbage a little to soften it and give it some water content (recipe calls for using raw cabbage which really doesn't get the right amount of steaming when cooking and the cabbage comes out rubbery and chewy). Also remove the thick veins on each cabbage leaf as they take longer to cook. Also add some ketchup for a sweet and sour taste, plus I add more sugar since I like my cabbage rolls sweeter.
I used the remainder of a chinese cabbage I had and found it easy to roll up after I had microwaved the leaves for a few minutes. I used 250g ground pork,100g rice,i small onion and 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic.I added a teaspn or so of sweet paprika and a tin of tomatos (instead of the condensed soup)which i put through the blender with a teaspn of minced garlic.If I make it again I will be sure to add tomato paste because the flavours were quite bland.(my husband put tobasco sauce on his).I baked it in oven for hour and half at 200C.We ate the lot without extra rice or potato on the side.
The rolls had a wonderful flavour to them. Quite easy to make but a little time consuming. Overall it was a recipe i will repeat in using.
My husband and I thought these turned out so delicious! I'm not an expert cabbage-roll-roller because they fell apart (I think blanching the cabbage leaves first would help), and the tomato soup burned to the bottom a bit but it didn't affect the flavour at all. Definitely will be making a double batch next time!
I love this recipe. It's the exact same that has been in my family for over 50 years.
These were quite easy to make and flavourful but how the heck do you get the leaves off the cabbage without ripping them?! I added paprika to the meat mixture and, instead of boiling for an hour and a half I used a pressure pan - HIGH setting for 20 minutes and it worked out great. Thanks!
Unfortunately the recipe wasn't quite as flavorful as I had hoped. I think it was mostly the cabbage's addition (even though its called Cabbage Rolls) that gave it an odd flavor. However, the filling was quite good when it was made into meatballs and baked with mushroom soup instead.
Maybe next time.
I have been a cook for a while, at home and professionally. I always make the recipe exactly to spec's, the first time. this recipe needs LOTS of work, the basics are there, thats it!!!
