How to make it

  • Mix first 5 ingredients, 2 tsp salt and dash of pepper
  • Core the cabbage to a depth of about 3"
  • Put cabbage in boiling water over high heat
  • With tongs, carefully remove about 20 leaves as they wilt. When cool enough to handle remove coarsest part of rib from cabbage leaves and reserve them
  • Cool remaining cabbage and coarsely chop with reserved ribs
  • Put half of chopped cabbage in a large kettle
  • Put a spoonful of meat mixture in center of each leaf and roll up, tucking ends under.
  • Place on chopped cabbage in kettle
  • Top with remaining chopped cabbage, sauerkraut, tomatoes (breaking up with spoon a bit) and butter
  • Add boiling water, season with salt and pepper
  • Bring back to boiling, cover and then simmer for 45 minutes
  • Serve with a dollop of sour cream
  • This recipe says 5 servings, I don't ever remember eating more than 3 by myself and I reheated them for leftovers, sometimes freezing them first.
