Golubvci (Cabbage Rolls)
1 whole head cabbage (about 3 pounds)
Boiling water
1 pound ground beef
1/2 pound ground veal
3/4 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup packaged precooked rice
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
5 slices bacon
1 can (16 ounces) tomatoes or sauerkraut
1/3 cup bouillon or meat broth
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper


1. Remove core from cabbage. Place whole head in a large kettle
filled with boiling water. Cover; cook 3 minutes. Remove softened
outer leaves. Repeat until all large leaves have been removed (about 20 leaves). Cut thick center stem from each slice.
2. Saute meat with onion 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in rice, egg, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
3. Place 3 tablespoons meat mixture on each cabbage leaf. Roll each leaf, tucking ends in toward center. Fasten securely with wooden picks. Place each roll seam side down in a large skillet or Dutch oven.
4. Lay bacon slices over top of cabbage rolls.
5. Mix tomatoes, bouillon, sugar, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Pour over cabbage rolls.
6. Cover; simmer about 1 hour, turning occasionally.
