Bariatric Galabki (Stuffed Cabbage Rolls) tlh

I like these because they are a complete meal-in-one. Meat, vegetable and a little starch all wrapped up in each bundle.

This recipe makes up quicker than most when using a pressure cooker but it can be baked in the oven or in a Dutch oven on top of the stove.

There is some brown rice in it but the percentage of carbs is low and the protein is high. Ground turkey could be substituted for one or both of the meats but the nutrition information would need to be changed.

There are many different kinds of stuffed cabbage recipes originating from many countries. This is more like the Polish-type (pronounced go-wum-ki) and is simpler than others. If your lifestyle is like mine, simple is better! Submitted by HEALTHYLIVN4ME

Bariatric Lynn's Pork Gyros with Yogurt-Tomato Sauce

This recipe calls for the pork to be marinaded for 1-4 hours. I did not include the ingredients in the marinade in the nutritional information because when the meat is removed from the marinade, it is to be patted dry before grilling or broiling.

I used pork medallions for this recipe. I started with 2 pounds. After removing all visible fat, I ended up with 1 lb + 12 oz. After cooking, the pork weighed 1 lb + 3 oz.

Don't waste the trimmings from the meat as there is usually some meat attached. I make stock by boiling the trimmings in water until the meat is done and the fat is mostly melted. Trim away the chunks so that only meat and no fat is left in the stock. Refrigerate it overnight, skim off the fat, label and freeze to be used for soups, stews, etc. later.

You will need the recipe called Bariatric Lynn's Yogurt-Tomato Sauce for this. The nutritional information for the sauce is not included with this recipe.Submitted by HEALTHYLIVN4ME

I got this recipe off allrecipes.com. I used ground pork because that's what I had. It turned out really good. My husband says "it's a keeper".
