I was glad to see a recipe similar to what I make to give to a friend because I, like my gram, never measured anything! I quarter a whole cabbage and precook it till 1/2 done then put the filling ontop of it. I don't use vinegar or ketchup instead I use a can of undiluted tomato soup& I drain a can of sauerkraut and lay it over the top of everything before cooking. I add more cut up canned tomatoes and tomato juice because I like alot of tomatoes.,my preferance.
I used a whole head of cabbage. And 1 lb of lean ground beef. I used only tomato sauce even instead of ketchup. I used 2 tomatoes, diced. Then after 4-5 hours, I added tomato juice, near 1 cup maybe. This is so yummy :) Thanks Vicki :) Made for Holiday tag
Very good and easy recipe. I used ground turkey instead of ground hamburger and I added carrots. Wasn't as good as my Polish girlfriend's traditional golumbkis though.
