Ingredients

How to make it

  • Combine beef and onion with 8 cups water in a large pot. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer until very tender, 3 to 3 1/2 hours. Remove from pot and set aside. Add potatoes to pot and simmer until soft, 15–20 minutes. Remove and set aside; discard onion. Boil cabbage leaves in liquid, 3 at a time, until soft, about 2 minutes. Set aside. Reserve 2 cups cooking liquid.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Mash potatoes with egg, salt and half the parsley. Chop beef very coarsely. Using a paring knife, cut a triangle at the bottom of each cabbage leaf to remove the thick, stiff part of the stem. Top each leaf with some potatoes and beef, tuck in the sides and roll up. Place seam-side down in a roasting pan. Ladle reserved cooking liquid over rolls, cover pan tightly with foil and bake 45 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining 1 tablespoon parsley and serve with mustard. Might sprinkle with a little lemon juice to brighten flavors.
  • NOTE: If corned beef brisket is unavailable, use a plain beef brisket, and season the cooking liquid with 2 tablespoons kosher salt, 2 teaspoons sugar, 2 bay leaves, 1 1/2 teaspoons mustard seeds, 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper and 4 allspice berries (or 1/4 teaspoon ground).

    Val, I copied and pasted this into a Word doc and filed it in my recipes folder. This looks very good and am so glad you don't have any tomato sauce over it!
