Loose Cabbage Rolls

Here is the story behind this. My mom was taught by someone when she was young to make russian style cabbage rolls. It was an all day process but they were delicious. She has been gone many years now and I miss those. I have tried a couple times to do them and while they are ok, they just aren't the same. The best part of hers was what she called "the trash". It was all of the leftover meat, cut off cabbage, and the small pieces of cabbage, etc put up on top of the rolls. This cabbage casserole tastes like the trash.

Here is the recipe along with the pictures.

Loose Cabbage Rolls

Start with 1 1/2 pounds ground beef in a dutch oven.

this is with the onions, bell pepper. Saute till all meat is browned, veggies are tender.

Add cut up celery, garlic
Add lots of seasoning, more then you think you need or it will be very bland.

Add cabbage and stir well.

Add in Spicy v8.

Stir well.

Put in covered pot and put in 350 oven for 1 hour and 30 minutes.
Stir and put in oven for about an hour more. Stir again and if cabbage is cooked to your liking, take out, and allow to sit for at least 30 minutes. It is very hot and retains the heat for a long time.

Will post picture tonight when we eat.
