Wild Idea Buffalo Cabbage Rolls in Tomato Sauce 2
I remember my grandma Mosey making these like it was yesterday. She would always, brown the meat before stuffing the leaves, and have noted that option at the bottom. Additional ingredients, such as chopped olives and artichokes can be added too. Enjoy!

Cabbage Rolls

Ingredients:

8 cabbage leaves
4 quarts water
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 pound ground bison
½ cup green or yellow onion, chopped
1 tablespoon oregano
1 teaspoon paprika
½ teaspoon allspice (optional)
2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 cup rice, pre-cooked
Tomato Sauce

Ingredients:

2 15 ounce cans crushed tomatoes
2 tablespoon brown sugar
¼ cup lemon juice
2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
Preparation:

1 – Mix all tomato sauce ingredients together over medium heat and let simmer for 10 minutes.
2 – Remove core from cabbage center.
3 -Bring water to a boil in stock pot, place cabbage in pot, turning cabbage occasionally. As able remove outside leaves from cabbage and place on a paper towel. Remove any stiff white core from leaves, for ease in rolling.
4 – Cover remaining cabbage and simmer for ten minutes. Remove cabbage, drain on paper towel and slice into strips when cool. Set aside.
5 – In a large bowl, mix oil, ground buffalo, onion, spices, prepared rice, and 1 cup of the tomato sauce together. Hands work best.

8 – Bake in a 375* preheated oven for 30 minutes, covered.

*Note: Meat mixture can also be browned first and then stuffed in cabbage leaves: In sauté pan over medium high heat, heat oil. Crumble in ground bison, onion and seasonings and brown. Remove from heat and stir in 1 cup of the tomato sauce and rice. Continue with step 6. Reduce cooking time to 20 minutes. Mixture can also be used with grape leaves, for the making of “Dolmades”.
