I love how you all 'play with your food'. I have found that the simplest traditional recipes are usually the most satisfying. And there are so many ways to make it! This one has nine basic ingredients that are in all pantries and kitchens. You can use cabbage leaves like the slavs, grape leaves like the Greeks, even pastry sheets; filled, rolled and fried like the Filipinos! Everybody loves cabbage rolls! Want fancy? Get Chef John's "Lamb in Cabbage Rolls" with 23 ingredients!
It has once again started me thinking...a green leafy thing, with a kind of meat,rice and seasoning thing and some kind of tomato thing. What about stuffed collard greens, or turnip or mustard greens? Kale? Lamb, beef, Pork, Venison, Buffalo? How about Cabbage and meat Sushi, rolled in Nori with a tomato-ish dipping sauce? Rice sheets? Call it a 'Winter Roll'! There's 28 recipes here listed under "Cabbage Rolls", a full month of rolls! This is the recipe my family used, but I find that I like it much better with Pasta sauce with a little sugar added.
Thanks for all the great ideas and family traditions. Personally, I'm a 'core, steam and de-vein' kind of guy...it's just how I Roll.
