Hey Rattlesnake, what's fer supper?!?


Something I hope to do more often is share with you all some of the really delicious things that my girl and I make for dinner.

Tonight, we had kohlrouladen, a.k.a Cabbage Rolls!


A hearty meal to say the least.

The recipe we used:

2 old bread rolls
1 head white cabbage
1 kg ground beef
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1 egg

1 tsp. Garlic powder
2 tsp. Salt
1 tsp.Pepper
1/2 tsp. Hickory salt

1 Liter water
200 grams uncooked bacon bits
Packet of brown sauce mix
Butcher's string

Begin by softening the rolls in milk or water. Bring a large pot of water to boil and place the cabbage in with the bottom facing up and allow to blanch. remove the cabbage and peel off the outside leaves. Repeat this until you have enough leaves.

In a mixing bowl, place the ground beef, softened rolls,egg, and half the finely chopped onion. Knead vigorously, adding the spices.

Once mixed, take two or three cabbage leaves, overlap them and then add some of the mixture (about the size of a stick of butter). Wrap the leaves around the meat and then tie the little packets off with butcher's string.

Heat a pan to high and add butter. Place the rolls in the pan and fry on both sides until lightly brown. Remove and then make your sauce, first by frying the bacon bits and the other half of the onion in the pan. Make your brown sauce according to the directions and add to the bacon and onions.

Once the sauce is done (should be a tad watery) place the rolls in the sauce and cover. Simmer for an hour. Serve with mashed potatoes.


Guten Appetit!

But we didn't use any rolls, only the cabbage which was to small to use for the rolls, cut in small pieces :-P
