Golabki (Stuffed Cabbage Rolls) Recipe
Cabbage leaves are rolled around a mixture of ground beef, pork, and spices, then simmered in tomato soup until tender in this authentic Golabki recipe.
Pork, onion, rice and seasonings are tucked inside these bundles of cabbage simmered in a mushroom broth. Then they are topped with a tomatoey sauce. These are especially delicious served with potatoes.
This recipe for traditional Polish cabbage rolls made in the Instant Pot® shaves a couple hours off the wait time for this amazing entree.
On a chill wintry night, there's just nothing like savory cabbage rolls.
Hubby said "was very good" then "was very very good". I had never used tomato soup before, but I bit the bullet and followed the recipe. The only difference was I added 2 TB of Worcheshire (sp) sauce because I have always put in my cabbage rolls. We also used Jimmy Dean sausage instead of just ground pork and it gave it an extra little kick. I'm sure it would be great without doing these two things so I gave it a 5 stars. Great tasting.
Savoy cabbage leaves are stuffed with ground beef, ground sausage and rice in this traditional dish.
This was the first time I tried making Galabkis. I added more garlic than recipe called for - about a tablespoon and a half, along with lots of ground pepper and some additional salt.. The recipe calls for it to cook for one hour at 350 - it was not done (maybe my oven?). I increased the temp. to 375 and cooked it for 1/2 more. I would try this again - good flavor.
I have almost the same recipe, with one exception. I got my recipe through my polish mother-in-law, who got hers from HER mother. It’s hand written, AND, since tomato soup has only been marketed for 101 years, it has NO soup in the recipe. Mine, & the dozen other “antique” recipes I have, show a variation of crushed whole tomatoes, sliced or stewed tomatoes (my grandmother has a fantastic antique recipe for stewed tomatoes!!!), and tomato sauce, plus spices such as marjoram, thyme, bay, & always in tomato dishes, two walnut shell haves of white sugar. I’m trying this tonight, as shown, plus some more with a jar of crushed stewed tomatoes in with the soup, because I personally like the chunks & juice like sauce, over the top. I’ll re-post my results tomorrow.
Dear wife and I made three casseroles dishes of this and froze one dish. These are delicious and we love this recipe. We'll be making this again, we enjoy cooking and experimenting with new found recipes.
