This week I have to admit to 2 litres of milk. Boo…small one decided to not drink her usual copious amounts of milk and we’ve been more than a bit off kilter around here.
It was so off that I couldn’t even use it as soured milk in a muffin recipe.
Let’s say, this is not the sort of homemade cheese that you want to feature anywhere.
BUT I’m determined that this won’t join the composter.
I’ve got a rather large cabbage and a cunning plan.
So…core the cabbage and hollow to the point that there is only 1 1/2 inches around the sides and on the bottom. Keep the cabbage that you take out.
I’ve got spices that make me think of Eastern Europe: 3 T. chopped fresh dill (using dried? just use 2 tsp.), 1 tsp. caraway seeds and 1 1/2 tsp. paprika.
Saute 1 lb. of beef with 1 garlic clove then add the insides of your cabbage (about 1 1/2 cups) and let wilt down. Add 1 cup mushrooms.
Add 1 tsp. worstershire, 1/4 cup beef broth and your spices.
Remove your beef from the pan and add 2 cups of tomato sauce and 2 cups of water.
Add your cabbage and stuff.
Don’t worry if it is even too full.
Tent with foil and bake for 1 hour at 350.
Cut wedges and invite the entire neighbourhood over for dinner.
Hope to see you back tomorrow for a fun announcement.

You say "stuffed cabbage" and I think cabbage rolls… and too much work. THIS, though, looks decently quick and doable… thanks, Jane! 🙂

I also like the idea of stuffing the cabbage instead of rolling the leaves. Too bad about the milk, but you had a good week.
I thought cabbage rolls also. But this was an easy, quick alternative and a great way to use that cabbage up!
What I love about this is that you can turn a downer into an upper in one second flat! You are wonderful. That cabbage dish really looks gorgeous. I'm always thinking of doing mashi (Arabic stuffed vegetables) but the amount of work involved pops a hole in my excitement bubble! You do have a fabulous idea here, Jane.
Thanks so much guys! It is such a homey dish and super quick to put together. The whole how smells comforting then. I'm warning you though-this is a boatload of food so invite friends C:
I love how you made this! I have a large cabbage I need to put to use too and I hate to have to peel leaves to make stuffed cabbage, this recipe looks much easier!
Mmmm thanks so much for linking up to my Recipe Roundup at eatprayreadlove.comThis does look like a good way to feed a large crowd inexpensively but deliciously!. So glad you shared!
