Sarmale – Stuffed Vegetables from Romania

The term "sarmale" refers to stuffed vegetables, typically stuffed cabbage or grape leaves. This Romanian dish usually sits on a bed of mamaliga.

Ingredients for Stuffed Vegetables

  • 2 heads white Cabbage or grape leaves

Filling

  • 2.2 lbs/1 kg ground beef preferably ribs
  • 1 cup rice
  • 1 heaping teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Chicken soup powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 cups water

For the sauce

  • 9 ounces/280 grams
  • 1 heaping teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Chicken soup powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 cups water

Instructions

  • 1. Boil water in a pot and turn off the stove. Using a knife, remove the core from the cabbages, place them in the pot and wait for the leaves to begin to separate.

  • 2. Pull off the individual leaves, cut each one in the middle and remove the thick center stem. Chop the remaining pieces of the cabbages and arrange them on the bottom of the pot.

  • 3. In a bowl, mix all the filling ingredients until well combined. Place a small amount of the filling on the bottom part of each cabbage leaf. Fold the edges over the filling towards the middle and create cylinder-shaped rolls. Arrange the stuffed cabbages in the pot.

  • 4. Mix all the sauce ingredients and pour them over the stuffed cabbages.

  • 5. Add enough water to the pot to cover the stuffed cabbages, bring to a boil, lower the flame and cook for about 30 minutes until the meat is cooked and the sauce has been absorbed by the stuffed cabbages.
