Make two special types of cabbage dishes in winter, the recipes are easy

Winter brings a chill in the air, but it also ushers in the season of hearty, comforting meals. Cabbage, a versatile and nutritious vegetable, takes center stage in many winter recipes, offering warmth and flavor to cold evenings. Let's explore two easy-to-make cabbage dishes that will tantalize your taste buds and warm your soul.

1. Savory Stuffed Cabbage Rolls


  • 1 large cabbage head
  • 1 cup cooked rice
  • 1 lb ground beef or turkey
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 can (14 oz) crushed tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup beef or vegetable broth
  • Chopped fresh parsley for garnish


  1. Prepare the Cabbage Leaves:

    • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.
    • Carefully remove the core from the cabbage head and blanch the whole cabbage in the boiling water for about 5 minutes until the leaves are soft and pliable.
    • Remove the cabbage from the water and let it cool. Gently separate the leaves, trimming off any tough ribs.
  2. Make the Filling:

    • In a skillet, cook the ground meat over medium heat until browned. Add the chopped onion and garlic, cooking until softened.
    • Stir in the cooked rice, crushed tomatoes, paprika, salt, and pepper. Cook for another 5 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together.
  3. Assemble the Rolls:

    • Place a spoonful of the filling onto the center of each cabbage leaf. Roll up the leaves, tucking in the sides, to form neat rolls.
  4. Cook the Rolls:

    • Arrange the cabbage rolls in a large pot or Dutch oven, seam side down.
    • Pour the broth over the rolls, ensuring they are partially submerged.
    • Cover and simmer over low heat for about 45 minutes to 1 hour, until the cabbage is tender and the flavors are well infused.
  5. Serve:

    • Carefully transfer the cabbage rolls to a serving platter.
    • Spoon some of the cooking liquid over the top and garnish with chopped fresh parsley.
    • Enjoy these savory stuffed cabbage rolls hot, accompanied by crusty bread or mashed potatoes.

2. Tangy Braised Red Cabbage


  • 1 small head of red cabbage, thinly sliced
  • 2 apples, cored and sliced
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Saute the Aromatics:

    • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the sliced onion and cook until softened, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add the Cabbage and Apples:

    • Stir in the sliced red cabbage and apples, coating them with the oil and onions. Cook for another 5 minutes, allowing the cabbage to wilt slightly.
  3. Simmer with Flavor:

    • Pour in the apple cider vinegar and sprinkle the brown sugar and ground cinnamon over the cabbage mixture.
    • Season with salt and pepper to taste. Stir well to combine.
  4. Braise to Perfection:

    • Reduce the heat to low, cover the skillet, and let the cabbage braise gently for about 30-40 minutes, stirring occasionally.
    • The cabbage should be tender, and the flavors melded together beautifully.
  5. Serve:

    • Transfer the braised red cabbage to a serving dish, ensuring to drizzle any remaining juices over the top.
    • This tangy and sweet dish pairs wonderfully with roasted meats or as a side to your favorite winter meals.

These two cabbage dishes are not only easy to make but also bursting with flavor and warmth, making them perfect companions for chilly winter evenings. Whether you opt for the comforting stuffed cabbage rolls or the tangy braised red cabbage, your taste buds are in for a treat!
