  • approx. 300 gr of finely chopped sauerkraut
  • 150 gr broth
  • 300 ml tomato juice

RECIPE PREPARATION Sarmale in cabbage leaves:

Mix the meat with finely chopped onion, rice, season to taste with salt, pepper, thyme, dill seeds, then add a little broth for both color and taste. I prepare a large bowl, or a pan, I add a little oil, half an onion cut into scales, then a sprig of thyme and some finely chopped cabbage, I also had sauerkraut as well as fresh, the fresh one will bring more sweetness to the dish. The cabbage leaf must be thin, without coarse ribs, malleable and large enough to fold the desired amount of meat with it. I make the sarmales the right size, so I take some meat to fit in a spoon, place it on the cabbage leaf and turn the ends of the leaf inwards, over the meat, and then roll the sarmaluta. *In the movie above you will see very explicitly the folding of the stuffed cabbage, and here there are a lot of ways to fold, so I like to do them in this way explained above. I line the sarmales, side by side, until the pan is full, add the rest of the chopped cabbage, the tomato juice and fill with water. The dish goes in the hot oven at 190-200 degrees for 2 hours, until the sarmales boil well and brown nicely on top, the house is filled with the inviting scent of sarmales, friends and family, because without them the sarmales have no purpose .

The amount of salt must also depend on how salty the cabbage is, if your cabbage is too salty, you must add it to the salt.

The cabbage leaves are peeled off the back and scalded in salted water and a tablespoon of vinegar. Leave to cool and wrap the stuffing in the sarmale. Spread a few cabbage leaves on the bottom of the pot, then place the sarmales. Spread more cabbage leaves on top. The borscht is boiled separately and poured into the pot. Top up with warm water to cover. Let it boil, over low heat, for three quarters of an hour. Then put in the oven for another two hours.
