Savoy Cabbage Recipe – Gluten Free Casserole

Create a delicious, healthy meal from cabbage, minced meat and sour cream in an hour with little more effort than making a burger from scratch.

As I currently have some time, I had been searching on the web a few days ago. Trying to find fresh, intriguing ideas, inspirational meals that I have never tasted before, to surprise my family with. Looking for a long time yet could not discover too many interesting things. Right before I thought to give up on it, I came across this scrumptious and simple dessert simply by accident over Suncakemom. It seemed so delicious on its snapshot, it required instant action.

It was not difficult to imagine the way it’s created, its taste and just how much my husband will probably enjoy it. Actually, it is extremely simple to please the man when it comes to puddings. Yes, I’m a blessed one. Or perhaps he is.Anyhow, I visited the site and simply used the precise instuctions that have been coupled with wonderful photos of the operation. It really makes life faster and easier. I could imagine that it’s a slight hassle to take snap shots in the middle of cooking in the kitchen as you may most often have sticky hands and so i really appreciate the time and energy she placed in to build this blogpost .

That being said I am encouraged presenting my personal recipe similarly. Many thanks the concept.

I was fine tuning the initial recipe to make it for the taste of my family. I’ve got to mention it was an incredible success. They enjoyed the flavor, the structure and enjoyed getting a delicacy such as this during a lively week. They quite simply demanded even more, a lot more. Thus the next occasion I’m not going to commit the same miscalculation. I’m gonna double the amount to make them happy.

Original savoy cabbage recipe invented by suncakemom.

Pour oil into a cooking pot, heat it up then add the rice and salt.

Mix it well until rice heats up for about 2-3 minutes then add the water. To quicken the cooking process, already hot water can be used from a kettle.

Cook the rice on low to medium heat with lid on until holes appear on the surface for about 15-20 minutes.

Stir the rice to avoid sticking it to the bottom of the pot then put the lid back. In case of electric cooktop turn the heat off and leave the pot on the burner until the rice absorbs the remaining water. In case of gas burners turn the heat to low and cook on very low heat until the rice absorbs the remaining water then set the pot aside.

Add the diced pancetta into a frying pan and start to fry it on low heat until golden brown and all the fat is rendered out. Optionally cooking oil can be used instead of fat.

Add the diced onion and salt then saute it until a translucent, glassy look.

Add the tomato, paprika then mix it well.

Add the meat, mix it well and stir fry it for 5-10 minutes. When it loses its water content and starts to fry add water until the meat is quarter submerged, put the lid on and cook it ready for about 25-30 minutes. Optionally, the raw rice can be added now, instead of prepared separately and cooked ready with the meat.

In a pot boil water, salt and the optional cumin.

Take the whole leaves off the savoy cabbage and submerge them in hot water.

Cook the whole leaves for 2-3 minutes then start to make the first layer in the baking sheet.

Spread half of the meat on the first layer of savoy cabbage leaves.

Spread half of the rice on top of the meat.

Create the second layer of savoy cabbage on top of the rice then repeat the meat and rice layer again.

Cover the second layer of filling with the last savoy cabbage layer and spread sour cream on top evenly as possible. The sour cream or creme fraiche needs to be in spreadable form. The best way is to shake its container before opening it up.

Bake it in the oven for 20-30 minutes on 390°F / 200°C until golden brown.
