Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

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


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.)
