Sons of Norway - Norwegian Culture - Recipes - Cabbage Rolls
16 Medium cabbage leaves
Boiling water
1 Tsp. salt per liter (quart) water
500 g (1 pound) ground beef
1 ¼ Tsp. salt
4 Tsp. potato starch
3-4 dl (1 ½ cups) full fat milk
½ Tsp. pepper
½ tsp. ground ginger
¼ Tsp. nutmeg
5 dl (2 cups) boiling, lightly-salted water

Parboil the cabbage in lightly-salted boiling water until soft, about 2 minutes. Drain well. Cut out the thick stem part. Preheat the oven to 160 degrees C (325 degrees F). Mix the ground beef with salt and potato starch. Gradually add milk and season with spices. Place a spoonful of the meat mixture onto each cabbage leaf. Wrap the leaf around the meat to form a small package. Place the cabbage rolls, seam side down, in a greased ovenproof dish. Pour over the water and place the dish in a water bath. Back about 30 minutes.

Serve with brown gravy, boiled potatoes and cooked carrots.
