Recipe by Steve P.
This comes from an old World War 2 cookbook my Mom had. It's a bit different than your usual Stuffed cabbage rolls because it has milk or cream instead of tomato sauce.
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1⁄2 lb ground pork tenderloin (omit pork and increase beef to 1+1/2 pounds if you don't like pork)
- 1 cup raw rice
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1 chopped onion
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper
- 1 head cabbage
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 cup milk or 1 cup cream
