Well it's Valentine's....so instead of just having a "big" glass of red wine and calling it a day after scrubbing, and vacuming.....I made one of my favorite dishes with a little red in it. I like cabbage rolls but I am not an authentic cabbage roller. I prefer the lazy ones and sometimes when you crave some sauerkraut, these will taste much better.
Glampingbaba's Sauerkraut Holopchi
1 litre Bicks wine sauerkraut
14 oz, can original diced tomatoes
1 cup uncooked rice( cooked to directions)
1 package ground beef
salt and pepper
Cook rice. Put drained sauerkraut in 2 cups of water and simmer for about 10-15 minutes just to presoften it a bit. Not necessary but I prefer it this way. Brown ground beef until it almost changes colour and throw in 1 diced onion until almost translucent. Salt and pepper to preferred taste. Add hot sauerkraut, drained of water, to beef mixture, stir and add cooked rice. Sprinkle garlic salt and dill as desired. Add 1 can diced tomatoes. Simmer turning mixture over for about 15-20 minutes until all flavours blend into each other. Better as the days go by for reheating. This makes alot but one can use smaller sauerkraut jars and less hamburger and rice quantities....and for the Veggie nuts.....use your fake steak and mix with everything else in much the same way. (Saute your onion till golden and then add veggie ground and sauerkraut, rice, tomatoes and season. You'll get a similar taste just no meat flavour).
