Granny's Cabbage & Meatballs

Submitted by: MOMOFCHANCE

Introduction

This was served every year at my house on New Years Day. It's that special treat I look forward to every year. It has been passed through our family starting with my Great grandmother and each person adds a little something to it. My addition was the garlic.

Ingredients

    1 1/2 lbs lean ground beef
    1 small onion, finely chopped
    2 eggs
    1 tsp McCormick Hamburger or Montreal steak seasoning
    2 Tbs Parsley flakes
    1 tsp pepper
    1 clove garlic finely chopped (or minced garlic)
    1 tsp dried thyme

    1 head of cabbage
    1 large onion, slices into rings
    1 15 oz can tomato sauce
    Approx 1 cup water
    Salt to taste
    Pepper to Taste
    Garlic Powder

Directions

1. Mix first 8 ingredients together and form into 2-3 inch patties.

2. Heat 5 qt. dutch oven and brown patties on each side. (I drain excess grease out of pan)

3. Cut up cabbage and place on top of patties.Lay onion rings over top of cabbage.

4. Pour tomato sauce over onions, cabbage and meatballs. Add just enough water to almost cover cabbage. Sprinkle the pepper, salt and garlic powder over and cover to cook.

5. When cabbage is almost done, remove lid and let sauce reduce. Cook to your desired doneness, but don't over cook.

    This was yummy! I used my own meatballs that I had in the freezer. I was looking for something to eat the meatballs with besides pasta and this is great! - 1/14/09

    Also good with ground venison - just use a spray of olive oil to keep the meatballs from sticking. - 1/20/09

  • The sauce was great over mashed potatoes, but I thought the meatballs could use more seasonings (more garlic? Worcestershire? caraway, perhaps?). Will definitely make again, but will modify the meatballs. - 12/30/11
