How to make it

  • Peel the cabbage leaves one by one, cut them in half if they are too big and remove the stork.
  • Chop the onion and carrot and fry them in a bit of oil with the rice.
  • Mix the mince meat with the egg, fried onion, the slice of bread and a pinch of salt(be careful not to put a lot of salt because the sour cabbage is already salted)
  • Place a tbsp of meat on the cabbage leaf and roll it tight then push the ends in with your finger
  • Chop the rest of the cabbage you didn't use sprinkling half of it on the bottom of the pan then add the tomato paste and sliced bacon.
  • Put the cabbage rolls in the pan.
  • Cover the cabbage rolls with water then sprinkle the bael leaves, peppercorns and the rest of the chopped cabbage.
  • Cover the pan with a lid and let it simmer for 1 hour or until the cabbage it's softened.
  • Serve with mamaliga and a chilly.
  • ENJOY!!!

    Good4U, yes it is sauerkraut but whole not shredded. In Romania, every year (autumn) we put cabbage in water with salt and let it ferment for 4-6 weeks. You can't find it everywhere in some western-European shops. Thank you so much for your comment!!!

    but not quite sure?
