How to make it

  • Prepare the white rice, according to instructions. You may also substitute minute rice, adding it the ground beef mixture.
  • Cut cores out of raw cabbages. place in 2 cups of water and boil.
  • Picking the "steamed" cabbage leaves off, with two forks, while cooking.
  • While that is steaming, prepare the cold ingredients. Fine dice the onion and bell pepper, and mix all together, with the rice.
  • When all the "leaves" are done steaming, run under cold water to prevent further cooking.
  • Cut the center "vein" out of each leaf, and roll the pigs up and set aside on a cookie sheet. When all of the pigs are rolled into their blankets, cut up remainder of the cabbage and lay in the pot you cooked the cabbage in, with the water. Gently place the pigs on their "beds" of cabbage. Add the tomato juice and sauce, with another cup to cups of water, to cover the pigs.
  • Cook on medium high heat, until the pigs come to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 45 minutes.
  • This is my Grandma's recipe, our family has all learned how to make the pigs in the blanket, generations down.
