The cool fall weather and end of Daylight Savings Time means my family gets a hankering for some good old-fashioned Comfort food. This Stuffed Cabbage Rolls, Golabki or Authentic Polish Golumpki recipe makes a delicious, satisfying supper for your family.
My daughter wanted to learn how to make these easy Polish Stuffed Cabbage with sweet and sour tomato sauce. It’s nice to pass on ethnic family traditions. Golumpki is very much like stuffed peppers, except with cabbage, and the meat mixture is very much like you would use for a meatloaf.
The Golumpki recipe itself is easy, however it is very time consuming, so plan ahead! The taste of this traditional comfort food is worth the effort. It took us about 2 hours to make. We doubled the recipe and made about 48 Golumpki.
Each tray held about 6 medium size stuffed cabbage. My daughter took 3 trays home, I gave one to another daughter, and kept 3 casserole dishes for ourselves, which became freezer meals. We usually have the kids stop in for dinner so it’s nice to have a meal on-hand for unexpected company!
Usually we make the Pierogi around the Christmas holiday season. I have several holiday craft fairs scheduled, and have been busy stocking my Moomettes Crochet shop with some pretty Crochet Wash Cloths for the season! We might have to get an earlier start this year, right after Thanksgiving. Take a peek:
