Original recipe yields 12 servings

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the ground beef, sausage, chopped onion, rice, water, and salt and pepper.
  2. Bring a large pot of water a boil. Separate 12 to 15 large cabbage leaves from the head, and place in boiling water. Boil until soft, approximately 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from water, and set aside.
  3. Into the center of each leaf, place a small amount of the meat mixture. Fold in the sides, and roll up from the bottom. Secure with a toothpick.
  4. Place a layer of sauerkraut in the bottom of a large pot. Arrange cabbage rolls in a single layer over the sauerkraut. Cover with remaining sauerkraut. Pour in enough water to cover the rolls. Bring to a boil, lower heat, and simmer for 90 minutes.

OMG! I have never had cabbage rolls cooked in sauerkraut. I used my regular recipe which is very simular to this one with the exception that I add, diced peppers and a heaping tablespoon of horseradish to the filling. This gives it a nice little nip. I noticed that everyone cooks their cabbage. You dont need to do that. When you buy your cabbage make sure its clean then put it in a clean bag and tie it up and put in freezer for a few days. The night before you are going to make your rolls, take cabbage out of freezer, leave in bag and put in deep dish. It will thaw over night and the leaves will just fall off. I use to hate making rolls because having to cook the cabbage. Now I love making them even more. Hope this helps everyone out.

I halved this recipe & only used ground beef, no sausage. I also cooked it in the crock pot. I put the sauerkraut in the pot first then layered the cabbage rolls on top. I poured a can of tomato sauce on top & added a little water. I cooked it on high for a couple hours, then turned it to low for about six more hours. It turned out great. I served it with mashed potatoes & we poured the sauce from the cabbage rolls over the potatoes. This is one of those comfort food recipes. Very good.

You can freeze the head of cabbage and as it thaws the leaves easily peel away, but I like to cut the core out and place the whole head into boiling water and one by one the leaves boil off, this makes it pliable to roll, and you will not have to use toothpicks to secure them. (Cut the thick stem out for better rolling) I also think if it's par-boiled it de-gases the cabbage. Do add a good quality 1-2 TSP of Hungarian Paprika to this, and 2 cloves of fresh garlic as well. I place them seam side down & I cover the rolls with tomato sauce then sauerkraut and instead of the water for the Cabbage Rolls to simmer in I use tomato juice. Ready in 2 hours! Serve with a dollop of sour cream!Excellent.
