|This is my favorite comfort food of all time! There are so many variations of cabbage rolls, but here's my Hungarian Granny's recipe and I love them!|
Delicious Cabbage Rolls
(click images for full view)
Boil a big pot of water and take the cabbage and score it around the core so that the leaves fall off easy.
Put the cabbage into the water and let it simmer and then peel off the leaves as they get partially cooked.
Combine all the Filling ingredients and mix well (You have to use your clean hands)
Fold the bottom up over the filling
Fold the left side over
And roll the rest...
Tuck in the top with your finger until it's tight and holds together. Prick the cabbage roll with a fork a couple of times to let the juices in and out.
Here they are...all rolled up and ready to go into the pot!
At this point they can be frozen. When ready to use, just put them into a pot frozen and proceed to the next step.(cook for an additonal 15 minutes
Line the bottom of a large pot with leftover cabbage leaves (prevents burning) Sprinkle a handful of diced tomatoes over these and start layering the cabbage rolls. Put a thin layer of Sauerkraut over the cabbage rolls and another sprinkling of tomatoes and repeat this process until the pot is full. Pour the tomato juice over everything until it’s covered. Sit the Green pepper and sprigs of Dill on top and bring to a low boil then turn down the heat and simmer on low for about 2 hours! You can cover it, but keep an eye on the pot to make sure it's not boiling too much. You don't want those cuties to break apart!
