Recipe Ingredients for Greek Cabbage Rolls

2 pounds ground beef
2 eggs
3/4 cup
25 g dill
2 tbsp sea salt
2 tsp ground black pepper
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1 tablespoon of olive oil
3/4 cup olive oil
1 onion, sliced in rings
2 stalks celery leaves
4 kg water
10 pounds cabbage
5 egg yolks
1 tbsp of water
7/8 cup lemon juice
1 tbsp corn starch

Recipe Directions for Greek Cabbage Rolls

  1. Mix the ground beef, two whole eggs, rice, dill, one of the onions, a little oil and water, and knead to mix thoroughly. Add more water or oil if needed. Form into 34-35 round pieces.

  2. In a large soup pot, bring salted water to a boil. Remove the core of the cabbage, and stick a large fork into the center. Immerse the cabbage, leaving the fork in. When the outer leaves turn bright green, lift using the fork and remove softened leaves. Return to pot and repeat until all cabbage leaves have been removed.

  3. Using the large outer leaves, place the meat mixture in the leaf and roll.

  4. Line the bottom of a lidded pot with the remaining onion, celery leaves, and the smaller cabbage leaves that were too small for rolling. Lay the stuffed cabbage rolls, fold side down, on top in snugly packed layers. Place an inverted plate on top to hold them down when cooking.

  5. Add water or chicken stock to cover, and bring to a boil. When boil is reached, turn down the heat, cover, and simmer for 1 hour.

  6. A few minutes before the cabbage is done, make the avgolemono sauce:

  7. Whisk the egg yolks and a tablespoon of water. Stir in 1/2 cup of liquid from the pot, lemon juice, and corn starch, whisking until smooth. Remove cabbage from heat, remove the plate, and pour in the egg-lemon sauce. Hold pot by the handles and shake gently to distribute.

  8. Serve warm with a few spoonfuls of the sauce over the cabbage.
