:arrow: I have made rolled stuffed cabbage, using my grandmother's recipe she handed down to my mother then to me. But I often found myself flunking at rolling those cabbage leaves. My husband and kids love the stuffed cabbage, but didn't like it that I got so literally "wrapped up" in the preparation I had to clean up the mess it often left behind, that I often missed out on sitting at the table with the family. My husband made a suggestion one time, saying, "Since we have to eat the stuffed cabbage and whatever was inside has to come out of the rolled cabbage in the process, why not try not rolling the cabbage leaves...." I though about it, thinking, "I have never seen a recipe like that before" and it wouldn't be called "stuffed cabbage". Then I found this recipe called 'Unstuffed Cabbage" but I used my grandmother's recipe instead...and wow!! It was a big hit!!!!

Ingredients:

1 1/2 to 2 pounds lean ground beef
1 tablespoon oil
1 large onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 small cabbage, chopped
2 cans (14.5 ounces each) diced tomatoes
1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
1/2 cup water
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon sea salt

Preparation:

In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add the ground beef and onion and cook, stirring, until ground beef is no longer pink and onion is tender.
Add the garlic and continue cooking for 1 minute.

Add the chopped cabbage, tomatoes, tomato sauce, pepper, and salt. Bring to a boil. Cover and simmer for 20 to 30 minutes, or until cabbage is tender.
Yield: Serves 6 to 8

An alternative. First, boil the cabbage in vinegar and water. Then wrap it around the ingredients. Slow cook the combination under medium heat covered with onions and tomatoes.

Looks and sounds tasty, may have to give this one a shot. Cabbage is really under appreciated as a vegetable...I think it's still a form of cultural backlash from the depression era.

The problem with cabbage is the terrible aftermath.

I love cabbage and use it a lot in soups. This does look delicious. I rarely do red meat any more, so would probably try it with cubed chicken breast.

:arrow: I have tried it with chopped dark meat turkey and it was great.

:arrow: I have never heard of doing it that way. I have heard of boiling eggs in vinegar and water to make them easier to peel. I'll have to give it try, when I want to roll up those cabbage leaves again. Thanks for the idea. :)
