Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of water to boil. Immerse cabbage in the boiling water, boil for 3 to 5 minutes. Drain well. Remove the 10 largest leaves and cabbage and set aside. Reserve enough cabbage leaves to line the bottom of a large saucepan.
  2. Bring the 2 1/4 cups of water to a boil. Add rice and return water to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer, cover rice and let cook until tender. Let rice cool.
  3. In a large skillet, brown the onion in the 3 tablespoons of butter or margarine.
  4. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine rice, onion, and raw pork. Season with salt and pepper. Divide the filling into 10 parts and spread evenly onto the 10 large cabbage leaves. Roll firmly, tucking the edges inside. Arrange a layer of the reserved cabbage leaves on the bottom of a saucepan and place the cabbage rolls over them. Place the mushrooms in the saucepan with the cabbage rolls. Add 1/4 cup boiling water to the saucepan, sprinkle with salt and let the cabbage rolls simmer over a medium heat until tender, approximately 30 minutes. If the water boils off, add more water while cooking.
  5. When the stuffed cabbage is tender, prepare the sauce. In a skillet, melt remaining butter or margarine and brown flour over a low heat. Dilute the roux with the remaining cabbage stock from the cabbage roll saucepan. Bring this mixture to a boil. Season with tomato paste. Pour the sauce over the stuffed cabbage immediately before serving.

I would recommend using more than one meat -- add ground beef and/or veal. It makes a wonderful difference. Shiitake mushrooms are okay in a fix, but dried Polish mushrooms cannot be paralleled. If you can't find them at an import store, you can buy them on-line.

This recipe was just ok. It took so long to make and made such a mess of my kitchen... and my family didn't like it as much as my original recipe.

Not Bad.

This is a time-consuming dish so you want it to be worth it. It tastes much, much better if you mix pork with ground veal, beef, or both. The Polish name for these cabbage rolls, "golabki," means "pigeons" (because they resemble a pigeon breast). As a kid I had qualms about eating them because of this :) Now they're just delicious. I suggest looking on youtube for tutorials on how to roll the cabbage (works best if you cut a triangle into the base of the leaf, so it's more pliable). Smacznego!
