DIRECTIONS

  • Boil cabbage long enough that leaves separate without tearing.
  • Select 10 to 12 of the largest leaves and trim off midribs so leaves become easy to roll.
  • Soak bread in water and squeeze out.
  • Combine with meat and mix thouroughly.
  • Cook onion in butter until golden.
  • Add with egg and salt and pepper to meat mixture.
  • Divide into as many portions as there are cabbage leaves and spread evenly on leaves.
  • Roll firmly, tucking edges so stuffing will not escape and secure with cotton thread, if desired.
  • If there are not enough large leaves, use 2 small leaves.
  • Slice some of the remaining cabbage and place in the bottom of a large pot.
  • Arrange cabbage rolls tightly on top and add broth.
  • Bring to a boil, cover and simmer over low heat for about 30 minutes.
  • Arrange on hot platter, pour sauce over top and serve with hot boiled potatoes.
  • Sauce: Make a roux with the flour and butter.
