Recipe: Sarmale in pickled or sour cabbage leaves

When you want to make sauerkraut in sauerkraut (or sour cabbage, as it is also called in Banat), I give you a piece of advice: when choosing your cabbage from the market, choose the one with the thin leaf. The best is the cabbage which has a yellow to greenish color.

This time, I took the cabbage from Billa (it was packed in a plastic bag), and it was excellent.

Put the cabbage in cold water for a few hours, at & # 8220desalt & # 8221. Then take leaf by leaf and cut to the desired size. From each leaf, cut the stalks, the hard ends of the leaf. Then, if you want smaller cabbages, make small leaves. But to have them prepared in advance, to be easier when you pack the sarmales.

In addition to the cabbage head, you also need:

  • 1 kg of minced meat (I took a mixture of pork and beef)
  • 2 cups rice
  • a large onion
  • 2 eggs
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 2 strands of smoked sausage
  • a piece of smoked rib (or ladder)

Cut the onion into scales and harden a little. Mix the meat with the rice, then add the hardened onions and mix. Add the raw eggs, then match the taste with salt and pepper. Be careful not to add too much salt, because it's also salted cabbage.

Once you have finished the composition, you can move on to the package. Take the leaf in your left hand, place the filling, bend the bottom of the leaf over the meat, then roll the leaf and the other end is & # 8220stead & # 8221 with your finger so that the composition does not comes out of the leaf.

In a large pot, place the ends of the leaves on the bottom, along with other & # 8220rupt & # 8221 or cabbage scraps, so that the bottom of the pot is covered.

Then put the smoked ribs, then a row of sarmale, then a row of sausage, cut into pieces. Then put the rest of the sarmale.

Put water in the pot until it reaches the last row of sarmale, but do not cover it.

Place a plate with the bottom up, and place a large cup (or mug, as I put it) with water on the plate. It's a secret from Maramures. Thus, the sarmales boil better.

For sarmale:
3 cabbages of about 750g each
1kg minced pork
125g rice
3 onions
3 tomatoes
1 sachet of lamiae salt
Salt, pepper, paprika to taste
A bunch of dried dill
3 bay leaves

For polenta:
250g Malay
1l 1/2 apa

Method of preparation:
Peel an onion, finely chop and fry in oil. When the onion becomes glassy, ​​add a teaspoon of paprika and mix. When the onion is high enough, add the rice and leave it on the fire for about another 2 minutes.

Put the minced pork in a bowl, add salt and pepper to taste and mix. Over this composition add onion and rice hardened and cooled, previously, mixing the composition until smooth.

In a pot, put 2 liters of water, salt to taste and put it on the fire until it boils. In this juice we burn the raw cabbage leaves. We put them one by one in the water and leave them until they become soft enough to roll the wire.

To fill the stuffed cabbage, we can use whole cabbage leaves, or if they are too big we cut them in half. Spread the leaf on the chopper, put a spoonful of filling on the leaf and then wrap the wire. The wire does not necessarily have to be packed at both ends, the filling does not spread if we pack it only at one end.

Put the dried dill in two cabbage leaves and roll it.

We cut the remaining cabbage leaves into small pieces.

We put the tomatoes on the grater.

In a pot large enough for the amount of sarmale we are preparing & # 8211 in this case we needed a 5 L pot - we put the bottom of the pot in oil then we put the finely chopped cabbage, over we add the rolled dill in the sheets cabbage, bay leaves and roasted tomatoes. Over all this we start to put the stuffing.

Sprinkle a layer of finely chopped cabbage over the sarmales.
Prepare the juice in which the sarmales are boiled in 2 l of water, 2 tablespoons of salt and a teaspoon of lemon salt. Pour this juice over the sarmale, in the pot and put them to boil on the right heat for about 2 hours.

We can serve the sauerkraut with sour cream and polenta.
Mamaliguta is prepared this way. We put 1l ½ of water in a pot, salt to taste and when the water starts to boil we add the malai in the rain. Stir continuously with a fork or a wooden spoon, so that it doesn't stick. Let it boil for about 20 minutes. Towards the end of the cooking process, if in some cases we want to obtain a very fine and creamy polenta, we put the blender in the pot with polenta - while the polenta is still boiling - and mix until we notice that it becomes creamy. .

Sarmale from mixed meat and sauerkraut

One thing I can tell you for sure. You will never be able to prepare just a few stuffed cabbage, the quantity will always be higher. That is why you will need a larger amount of meat.

A very important thing is to wash the cabbage with water at first. Thus, the cabbage will remain only as sour as it should be and will not spoil the taste of the sarmales. After washing the cabbage, choose the sheets that allow you to wrap them in sarmale. Make sure the sheets are whole, have no holes. What's left of the cabbage chops finely because you'll need it.

Prepare the meat now. Cut the meat into smaller pieces that you can cut through a mincer. When you have finished all the meat, put it in a large bowl and mix it. It's much better if you do sarmale with cabbage of pork and beef, than of a single type of meat. Then add the rice, finely chopped onion, salt, pepper, thyme and, if you want, you can add an egg. Mix the whole composition very well and start packing the sarmales.
