    IronChefZahra's Note:

    There are different versions of this recipe from all over the Balkans. You may be able to get sour cabbage from an Eastern European market; if not, you can boil the cabbage heads until soft enough to work with (the dish will taste slightly different - maybe add some vinegar to the broth). It is a very filling dish! Don't worry about leftovers, they taste just fine reheated (use the stove, not the microwave)!

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 lbs sour cabbage leaves (or one large head)
    • 10 ounces ground veal (beef or lamb may be used if you prefer)
    • 1/3 cup rice
    • 1 medium onion, finely minced
    • salt and pepper
    • paprika
    • beef stock or water
    • butter and sour cream, to serve

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Separate the cabbage leaves, being careful not to tear them.
    2. 2
      Mix meat, rice, onion, salt, pepper, and paprika.
    3. 3
      Place about a tablespoon or more (use your own judgment based on the size of the leaves) of the meat mixture into each cabbage leaf, near its base.
    4. 4
      Begin rolling the leaf from the base into a thick cylinder, tucking in the sides after the first "roll."
    5. 5
      Layer the cylinders tightly into a medium-sized or large pot.
    6. 6
      Cover the sarma with beef stock or water (I find that if you use water, it makes its own broth anyways with the meat as it cooks).
    7. 7
      Cover the pot, bring to a boil, and simmer for at least three hours.
    8. 8
      Serve with butter and sour cream, with or without some of the cooking liquids according to your preference.
    9. 9
      *Boiled potatoes are often eaten with sarma, and they go quite well together.
