Ingredients

  • 1 head of cabbage quartered
  • 1 large onion, chopped fine
  • 1 pkg Onion Soup Mix
  • 1 lb ground beef (or you can use 1/2 beef 1/2 pork)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 stick of butter

Directions

  • In a large stock pot, add cabbage, 1 tsp salt, and one of the the chopped onions. Bring to a boil and cook until cabbage is almost tender (not too soft, but not hard either). In a large bowl, mix ground beef, eggs, 1/2 tsp black pepper and onion soup mix. Using a slotted spoon, arrange a layer of cabbage in your casserole dish (about the size of a lasagna pan). On top of the cabbage, place a layer of the beef mixture, then another cabbage layer and so on. The top layer shoud be a cabbage layer. Ladel some of the cooking juice from the cabbage over the casserole. Top with butter cut into 1/2 inch pats. Sprinkle top with remaining black pepper. Bake in 350 degree oven for 45 - 60 minutes or until meat is cooked through. Serve with boiled potatoes and onions fried in butter(fried until they're dark brown and crispy)
  • This was always one of my favorite foods that my mother made. It was my grandmothers recipe and most likely her mothers recipe and so on. My mother comes from a small island in the North Sea called Insel Fohr. It belongs to Germany and has a lot of German influence, but there is an interesting blend of cultures there (which I'm sure is due in part to the Viking "visits" back in the day.)
