Cabbage Rolls, Grandma's Recipe
By Kathie Carr kathiecc
Grandma didn't make these often but when she did we all loved them.
Old fashioned cabbage rolls take a lot of time and have to cook for 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 hours (depending on how many you cook and how closely they are packed into the pan), so don't plan on making them if you are in a hurry. This is a dish best made by a group or family together. You can set up an "assembly line" and make a big bunch. They freeze well so we think its worth the effort.
Place each meat portion at the curled tip of a cabbage leaf. Fold the top of the leaf down over the stuffing, fold the sides of the cabbage leaves in toward the center, and roll up to enclose the filling.

I just love cabbage rolls and haven't had them nearly often enough! ;) I quit eating pork a couple of years ago. Do you think I could make this without that? And if so, what else do you think I might do to adjust the recipe? Thanks! And good luck with this recipe!

I see no reason why you couldn't use ground turkey in this recipe instead of pork. We don't eat much pork but once in a while its good. I would like to know how it turns out if you try it with turkey (or even with all beef). I have never tried it that way but I don't think I would ajust the seasonings or anything else. Best wishes.
