Chou Farci (Stuffed Cabbage)

June 1, 2017

Preparation time: 20 minutes
Cooking time: 3 hours
To serve: 4

You will need
2 lb. cabbage with firm heart
salt
12 oz. pork sausage meat
4 oz. chicken or lamb’s liver, finely chopped
1 large onion, sliced
2 large carrots, sliced
1 bay leaf
4 tablespoons white wine
1/2 pin (U.S. 1 1/4 cups) stock
3 rashers smoked streaky bacon

Discard loose outer leaves and wash cabbage. Blanc in boiling salted water for 5 minutes. Drain upside down in a colander. When cool enough to handle cut out hard stalk and open out the leaves. Mix sausage meat and liver together and insert a little between each cabbage leaf. Reform cabbage and tie with tape. Put the onion, carrots, bay leaf, wine and stock into a deep casserole and place the cabbage, stalk end down, on top. Lay bacon rashers over cabbage and cover pan closely. Cook in a pre-heated slow oven (290° F. or Gas Mark 1), for 3 hours or longer, basting now and then. Serve the cabbage surrounded with carrots.
