Angela Passey


1 large cabbage ,
1/2lb each minced beef & pork (or just ground beef),
1/2 cup rice,
1 onion,
1 carrot,
2-3 tomatoes,
2-3 tbs tomato paste,
3 garlic cloves ,
parsley sprig,
salt & pepper to taste,

Preparation--Remove and soak cabbage leaves in boiling water for 1-2 minutes. Trim thick centre vein from bottom of each leaf.
Chop carrot into thin strips, dice onion and fry together in oil or butter until tender.
Chop parsley, finely chop tomatoes (or blend to puree).
Parboil rice (the grains should still be firm to the touch).
Peel garlic and finely chop or crush in a garlic press.
Mix meat with rice, onion, carrot, garlic, tomato, parsley, salt and pepper.
Place 2-3 tablespoons of meat mixture on each cabbage leaf (exact amount varies with size of leaf).
Fold sides of cabbage over, and, from the stem end, roll into tubes and lightly press the mixture into the leaves.
Place tubes in a pan lined with cabbage leaves, pour in boiling water to barely cover, add tomato paste and simmer gently till the meat is cooked through and the cabbage is soft (around 30-45 mins).
Serve with the cooking liquid and sour cream.

Personal Notes:
I use less meat and more vegetables, and layer and cook in the crockpot until tender...I'm not sure how long that takes, it may be a couple of hours.
