Corned Beef Stuffed Cabbage

Corned Beef Stuffed Cabbage

This week I attempted to make stuffed cabbage after seeing it on Bafefoot Contessa. I was nervous at first, but once they went into the oven and came out looking like this, I knew that my attempt was successful {thank God because Lord knows there was no alternative if it this didn’t work…lol}.
I didn’t have any ground beef or turkey, so I used corned beef and it came out just as good. {Can’t wait to try it with Ground Turkey!} It’s a great alternative to the Irish favorite – Corned Beef and Cabbage. This was so yummy. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

Corned Beef Stuffed Cabbage

Corned Beef, canned
6 cabbage leaves
2 whole leeks, chopped
2 whole scallions, chopped
1 tablespoon of ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
2 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce
3 tablespoons of Olive Oil
2 cups of tomato sauce
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
In a pot, bring 8 cups of water to a boil. Add cabbage leaves and  let boil for 15 minutes. While cabbage leaves boil, add 3 tablespoons of Olive Oil to a wok/skillet then add leeks and scallions. Cook for about 5 minutes then add corned beef, cayenne pepper and black pepper. Stir and cook for about 5 minutes. Add 2 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce. Stir and cook for an additional 3 minutes then remove from heat.
In a baking dish add 1 1/2 cups of tomato sauce. Drain leaves and set aside. Take one leaf and lay it flat on a cutting board or plate. Take one large scoop of the corned beef mixture and place in the center of the leaf. Bring bottom of leaf up, then tuck in both sides and roll until mixture is enclosed. Add stuffed cabbage to pan. Repeat this until all leaves have been used. Use remaining 1/2 cup of tomato sauce to brush onto stuffed cabbages.
Place pan in the oven and set timer to 35 minutes. After 15 minutes have gone by, check on cabbages to ensure that they are not drying out. If so, brush some of the tomato sauce onto the top of the cabbages and let cook for the remaining 20 minutes.
Remove from heat and Serve!
Tip: Canned Corn Beef can be quite salty. This is why we do not encourage adding salt to this dish.
