>Galumpki Casserole ( Stuffed Cabbage Casserole)

>Sometimes the “messiest” looking dishes really are the most satisfying. This started out as the individual galumpki’s, but with the accidental tearing of the cabbage leaves and somehow i knew there wouldn’t be enough of the vegetable to make as many of the rolls as i wanted, i improvised. It worked out wonderfully. MY picky kids ate it with no complaint whatsoever..
Galumpki Casserole
2 pounds ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 rib of celery , finely chopped
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 head cabbage
1 28 oz can tomato puree
1 28 oz can diced tomatoes
2 cups cooked white rice
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 egg
Boil cabbage in enough water to cover for about 7 minuites, drain, and let cool. Carefully peel back leaves and set aside.
Mix the 2 cans tomatoes together in small bowl.
Mix burger, 1/2 cup of tomato sauce, onion, rice, garlic, celery, Worcestershire sauce, egg, salt and pepper in large bowl.
Oil the bottom and sides of a dutch oven. Place 1/3 of the cabbage leaves in the bottom. Place 1/3 of the meat mixture on top, spoon aboiut 1/4 cup tomato sauce on top. Layer with more cabbage leaves, then meat, then sauce.Cover with leaves. Sprinkle tomato on top, drizzle with olive oil.
