Golumbki- Cabbage Rolls Made In Polish Heaven!
This week-end in Grand Rapids, MI, there is a festival called Pulaski Days.. Polish falcons everywhere! Polka bands in every bar! Pulaski was an imported military expert, we needed during the Revolutionary War.. Helped us a lot, freeing this country to become the nation we are today! It was contrived by a bunch of Pollacks(it's OK, they call my kind Hollanders-or Dike-jumpers!) to have an excuse to party! It grew into a city-wide event, that is a week-end long affair of eating and drinking, and Polka dancing..
I normally buy my Polish food from my friend, who owns a West side bar..Gruska is his name, and how a Hollander like me, and Pollack like him became dear friends is a whole 'nother story! I couldn't get over there- so I made my own Golumpki!
1. Blanch a whole white cabbage-for about 6 minutes, and core it first!
2. while that is happening, get some minute rice, and follow the instructions on the box!
3. Mix a pound of uncooked ground beef with that cooked rice, adding onion powder,salt, and pepper.
4. Stir in V-8 juice-4 oz. ought to do it..
5. Fill cabbage leaves with mixture, rolling up and placing seam side down in a greased pan.
6. Bake, covered for 1 hour at 350F
7. Tomato sauce, with onion powder, salt, sugar, and pepper simmered until thick is your sauce- to pour on now!
8. Welcome to a taste treat you didn't know was so simple!
