I planted 2 red cabbage plants
in an old barrel and they grew very well.
After harvesting them,
I didn't want them to go to waste and
decided to try making stuffed cabbage.
I made the green stuffed cabbage before
and this was the first time I try the purple.
The red/purple cabbage is a kind of cabbage with coloured leaves of red or purple. The plant changes its colour according to the pH level of the soil. In acidic soils, the leaves grow more reddish,
in neutral soils they will grow more purple.
Preheat oven to 350deg.F
1 lb. ground beef
1 cup cooked rice
2 tbsp chopped parsley
salt and pepper to taste.
Brown the meat in a skillet
add the onion, cooked rice and spices.
Cook on low for about 5 minutes.
2 tbsp olive oil
1 onion chopped
1 garlic clove chopped
1 (28oz) can crushed tomatoes
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp brown sugar
2 tsp dried oregano
pinch of salt
In a skillet with the olive oil,
cook the onion until soft,
about 5 minutes.
Add the crushed tomatoes, garlic,
vinegar, brown sugar, oregano,
salt and pepper.
Lower heat and simmer
approx. 20 minutes.
Blanch the cabbage leafs.
Place the whole cabbage in a large pot of boiling water
to soften the leaves about two minutes.
Remove and carefully separate each leaf.
Cut out the hard core and some part of the ends.
Pour about 1/2 of the sauce in the
baking dish before placing the rolls.
Fill each leaf with the meat filling,
about 1/3 cup, then roll up,
tucking in the sides as you roll.
Place with seam side down on top of the sauce.
Cover with the sauce.
Bake for about 1 hr.
