The basic recipe for stuffed cabbage is quite simple. You can get many good recipes and variations for stuffed cabbage from the various cooking websites. However, here is a simple and easy one.
You need a few ingredients for making a delicious and mouthwatering dish of stuffed cabbage. Apart from a medium head of cabbage, you need one pound of ground beef, one cup cooked rice, garlic power to taste, one egg, one can of tomato juice, a tablespoon of vinegar, and a tablespoon of white sugar.
First boil the head of cabbage in a large pot over high heat for about 15 minutes, or until the leaves are soft and pliable. Allow the cabbage head to cool completely. Now remove the hard veins from the leaves. In a different bowl, mix beef, rice, garlic powder, and the egg. The mixing should be thorough to ensure that there are no lumps. Place this mixture in a cabbage leaf and fold over carefully ensuring that the meat stays inside. Tuck the loose ends inside so that the bundle is firm. These filled leaves should be placed in a large pot and covered with tomato juice, vinegar, sugar, and water. Let it simmer for an hour. You have to make sure that the bottom packages do not burn. To ensure this, add sufficient water to the pot.
You can vary this recipe by using spaghetti instead of rice. You can also add other condiments to the mixture instead of garlic. Spices such as ginger and green pepper work well too. You can also bake it instead of boiling it. The trick is in ensuring that the stuffing does not come out when it is being cooked.
