You know what I'm talking about. Those little rolled cabbage leaves stuffed with tasty goodness. Heck, even if you're not Polish, most love golumbki.
Note: Everyone spells it differently. This is how we spell it.
Well, I am going to share with you my mama's "lazy" version. It's more of a casserole.
Being 100% Polish, I was raised on this stuff.
So get your pen and paper ready. Or now it's more like get ready to cut and paste this delicious recipe because I whipped up a batch today.
1 small head of cabbage (cored)
1/2 lb. ~ ground hamburger
1/2 lb. ~ ground pork
(or in a pinch, you can use 1 lb. ground hamburger)
1 large onion (chopped)
1 C ~ white rice
2 cans of Campbell's Tomato Soup (undiluted)
(Since I am anti high fructose corn syrup, I prefer to make my own using tomato sauce and tomato paste. Seasoning it with garlic powder, and a bit of sugar. But hey, the canned soup works just fine.)
4 Tbs ~ butter
Salt and pepper to taste.
Cook the white rice as directed and set aside.
Brown the ground hamburg/pork with the onion. (I drain off the grease) Set aside.
Slice the small head of cabbage into thin slices.
In a large bowl add your hamburger/pork, white rice and canned tomato soup. Mix thoroughly.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a 11x13 casserole dish alternate a layer of sliced cabbage, then a layer of hamburger mix, then another layer of sliced cabbage then another layer hamburger mix...
"Dot" around the top with butter. I like to dot it all over with about 1/2 Tbs with each dot.
Cover with foil.
Bake for 1 hour and ta-dah!!! Delicious Lazy Golumbki.
Ummm... Depending on how you "react" to eating cabbage, you may want to keep the windows open afterward. ((giggle))
