I had a cabbage and some minced beef so decided to make this tonight..
First I browned the mince then added the rice, onion, herbs and seasoning, it’s really not very much rice, I had put 2 tbsps of rice onto boil which worked out as just about 4 tbsps of cooked rice..
While that was simmering I peeled the best leaves off the cabbage and only ended up with 10 decent ones..
They were blanched in boiling water for a couple of minutes until soft..
I had the beef mixture simmering for longer than 5 minutes before the stock had all been absorbed..
Next the mix is spooned onto the leaves..
They are all wrapped up and into a casserole..
The remaining stock is poured over and then it’s into the oven for about 45 minutes..
So this was dinner, I guess you could serve with some mashed potato to mop up some of the liquid but we had just as they are..
Well this may not look like the most appealing dinner but it tastes brilliant! The cabbage is really soft but tastes good having been wrapped round the beef. Then the beef mix is great, you can just taste the mixed spice and mint which is good. Even my daughter loved these and her plate was scraped clean, she had two parcels and I had three which may not seem like much but they are surprisingly filling. Overall it’s another great recipe!
Would I make this again? Yes, great family dinner..
