Ya gotta love this recipe. How many things can you make with a head of cabbage, a large bottle of ketchup, and a tablespoon of bacon grease? Throw in a pineapple and a sea urchin or some squid, and it's Iron Chef time.


I knew you'd notice the bacon fat in there. I'm sure you could fry the onions in vegetable spray instead. I did hesitate at posting the recipe bco the ketchup; seems like it should be something more tomato-y and less processed, e.g., canned tomatoes (or tomatoes you've parboiled and skinned), but what do I know. I don't know if I've ever even made this stuff. I've had some encounters with cabbage; I just can't remember in what capacity.


Hey! That comment of mine was the 100th comment here!

Anyway, I also thought that business re: putting the cabbage in the freezer or microwave to soften was a little, modern, shall we say. I like to picture the old ladies with their aprons boiling and draining each leaf.

I was also a little disconcerted about the Uncle Ben's rice mention...that also seems a little, modern and a shortcut. A little inauthentic.

But again, what do I know? Maybe I should just make the stuff someday and see how it is.

I just realized that there are two meats in this: ground beef and kielbasa. I guess the galumpki are just a side dish - or a veggie - for some.
