Gołąbki  are a traditional polish dish made from cabbage leaves which are wrapped around minced meat, chopped onions and/or rice.

To prepare them, you will need:

– cabbage (the best is young, it is softer than old one),
– 500 g minced pork or beef,
– 1 glass of rice,
– 1 bread roll [or piece of bread]
– some milk,
– salt, pepper
– 1 onion [optionally]
– tomato sauce
– cream.
Cook the rice. Put the bread into the glass with milk and leave it there for some time. Chop onion and mix it with meat, salt and pepper, add rice. Squeeze bread and add to the rest, mix everything thoroughly.
 Remove with a sharp knife inside part of the cabbage and put the rest into boiling water for at least 5-10 minutes. Carefully separate the leaves, dry them, and if necessary cut out  hard part at the base of the leaf. Separate the outer leaves of cabbage and put them into the lining of the pot.
For each leaf we put a portion of the stuffing and roll them tightly from the base. Put wrapped meat  in the pot tightly side by side. Pour the tomato sauce on them, gołąbki should be all covered by its. Cook them covered on the low heat for about 40-60 min.
When the dish is ready, you can add some cream if you like.
Optionally, gołąbki can be made without rice, then smashed potatoes should be given as a side dish.
